I first heard about TEDEd lessons a few years back. A follower on Twitter had asked me if I wanted to apply for a TEDEd fellowship. I checked out the application and one question asked was, How many TEDEd lessons have you created? What’s that?! Since then, I’ve been recommending it at faculty development workshops, as a way for professors to use videos in their classes. A TEDEd lesson is one way a professor can flip his class!
But I wondered what would happen if I asked my health informatics graduate students to create their own TEDEd lessons? You see, I’ve always believed in Docendo discimus, (Latin “by teaching, we learn”). Not only did I ask the students to create their own TEDEd lesson, but I also asked them to take the lessons created by their classmates. And now that the semester has come to an end, I too must take these lessons to be able to evaluate them (Wow!). Below are the links if you’d like to try them out too!

I gave the students the freedom to choose their topics. Their choices also gave me insight as to their interests in health informatics. I hope you will find these lessons a good introduction to the field.
