TLTR 11-20-2009: Distance Learning


The November 2009 TLTR session showcased the pioneering work of Ryan Palmer, the Administrative Director of Principles of Clinical Medicine (PCM).  Charged with finding a cost effective, reliable way to connect students on rural rotations with their colleagues on the Portland campus, he designed a reliable, user-friendly and cost-effective way to make it happen.  Through trial and error, Ryan discovered just how simple it could be to provide students with the technology they needed to stay on track for graduation.
