Dean Frenk discusses use of technology in education

When it comes to using new technology in education, “the trick is not to adopt, but to adapt,” Harvard School of Public Health Dean Julio Frenk told the audience at the Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT) conference, held at Harvard’s Science Center on May 8, 2013. The conference focused on the essentials of good teaching and learning. Participants examined teaching and learning issues from three perspectives: “The Science of Learning,” “The Art of Teaching,” and “Innovation, Adaptation, Preservation.”

Dean Frenk, focusing on adaptation, spoke about HSPH’s efforts in both residential and online learning.
