Technology standards allow organizations to connect in new ways and share their work across institutional and even national boundaries. During this workshop, we will explore what technology standards are and how they can be used, focusing on MedBiquitous technology standards and some key projects that illustrate how they can be used. Participants will work with one another to define a sample standard data structure, identify common challenges, and identify opportunities for leveraging standards to enable collaboration and integration. The workshop is designed for educational leaders, learning technologists, technical developers, and a general lay audience.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Describe what a technology standard is and the potential benefits standards afford
- Describe technology standards developed by MedBiquitous
- Identify opportunities for collaboration and integration leveraging standards
