Introduction

Instructional technologies used to be optional and supplemental pedagogical tools until the global health crisis of 2020 compelled education systems to rely on digital devices and services to guarantee academic continuity. Suddenly, the contemporary principles and practices utilized in delivering health education curricula were insufficient and ineffective. Acknowledging the vital role of technology in shaping the future of education, there is now a greater demand to foster innovative interventions and continuous improvement in strategies, methodologies, and systems to empower learners, educators, and leaders in the digital age.

Objective

The Instructional Technologies in Health Education and Allied Disciplines book provides comprehensive coverage of innovative methods and strategies to produce the next generation of health professionals. The anthology is diverse in nature, ranging from theoretical constructs to practical applications, with a particular emphasis on the challenges and effectiveness of instructional technologies in both physical and digital classrooms. Covering technologies of current and future interest, this collection of chapters is an initiative that lays the groundwork for an implementable teaching and learning model that facilitates basic knowledge acquisition, enhances perceptual variation, improves skill coordination, and develops a scientific and technological mindset.
