ANN ARBOR, MICH. (November 18, 2015) – Georgetown University School of Medicine has selected Seelio by Keypath Education as an integrative learning and career preparation tool for its students.

With a long history of preparing students to seek knowledge in service of the community, Georgetown University places 90 percent of its medical students into one of their top three residency choices each year. Students will now have access to Seelio throughout their learning experience to track and document learning outcomes.

“We want to determine if this tool will assist students in forming their professional identity, integrating learning that occurs in and outside of the classroom, and connecting in a new way with advisors throughout their journey as medical professionals,” said Dr. Maria Marquez, assistant dean for reflection and assessment, Georgetown University School of Medicine.

All first-year students will be introduced to Seelio in 2016, with the opportunity to bring Seelio to more students based on the initial launch period’s success.

Recognizing reflective practice as imperative for integrative learning, Georgetown University School of Medicine faculty and administrators are working with Seelio’s service team to identify touch points throughout the student experience where students will be prompted to document and connect key learning experiences. Students will record these learning experiences in professional profiles as members of groups, or learning families, where they will receive continual feedback from peers and faculty. With evidence of student learning on Seelio, faculty can now better track learning outcomes and advise students on a more meaningful, holistic level.

As students and faculty capture key learning experiences on Seelio, Georgetown University School of Medicine will have galleries of student work for each learning family to demonstrate student learning outcomes.

“We’re excited to work with Georgetown University School of Medicine as it empowers students to reflect on key learning experiences throughout their journey to become leading medical professionals,” said Moses Lee, co-founder of Seelio and group president at Keypath Education.

Student Spotlight: Symphony Webb, Prairie View A&M University

Getting to Know Prairie View A&M Student Symphony Webb

Student spotlight stories are our favorite posts to share. It gives us the opportunity to learn more about our students and the various experiences and skills that they have. For this post, we connected with Symphony Webb, a communications major at Prairie View A&M University.

Communications students work on a variety of different projects during their educational journey. Some of these projects call for many types of audio, written, and visual artifacts and also require particular skill sets. When we saw Symphony’s profile, we thought she did a great job including the appropriate artifacts and documenting her contributions to each of her works.

Aside from all of the great work she is doing in the classroom, Symphony is also very active in her community. She started her own blog as well as a YouTube channel to offer fashion and makeup advice. With Seelio, Symphony was easily able document all of these experiences and skills in one place where she can showcase all of the great work she is doing to potential employers.

We had a chance to talk to Symphony about her experience and advice for other students. See what she had to say:
