As healthcare and educational technologies evolve, new opportunities for innovation arise in teaching the next generation of health care professionals. Yet, these advancements bring new challenges for faculty and teaching/learning professionals in improving learning outcomes and performance. The NYCNECT Education Conference & Technology Summit is a venue for sharing innovative practices and teaching strategies with a diverse community of New York City educators working to transform nursing and health professions education.

The conference focuses on innovative teaching and learning strategies supported by educational and health information technologies to address barriers and improve learning outcomes in nursing and interprofessional education and practice (IPE).


Plenary Speaker

Timothy C. Clapper, PhD

Using Technology to Reach your Learners: The Theory behind the Practice

Timothy C. Clapper, PhD is a Professor of Instructional Technology and an Education and Simulation Consultant. He spearheaded the opening of an 11-hospital medical simulation center, conducted a complete reorganization of a nursing simulation hospital, and advised/facilitated numerous simulation and teamwork projects worldwide. Using his unique brand of brain-based learning (BBL) and simulation, Dr. Clapper has developed and facilitated instruction for thousands of teachers, healthcare providers, and healthcare educators. In addition to improving the clinical skills of providers at numerous locations, the team-based courses that he developed were recognized by the Joint Commission as “best practices.”

Dr. Clapper is best known for his work in health care simulation, including his Saturation in Training model described in Why Your TeamSTEPPS Program May Not Be Working, his Conflict Theory of Medical Errors described in In Situ and Mobile Simulation: Lessons Learned…Authentic and Resource Intensive, and his approach to educating adult learners described in Beyond Knowles: What Those Conducting Simulation Need to Know about Adult Learning Theory. He is an American College of Surgeons Advanced Trauma Life Support Educator, and Public Member of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Review Committee for Anesthesiology.
