Enabling Active Learning
Standard ED5A of the Liaison Committee on Medical Education standards for accreditation of a medical school states that:
ED5A. A medical education program must include instructional opportunities for active learning and independent study to foster the skills necessary for lifelong learning.
At our medical school, we have incorporated instructional technology tools into the learning environment to enhance learner engagement and collaboration and to promote active learning. In this session we will:
• Provide participants with an overview of team-based learning, a specific modality of active learning.
• Introduce strategies to enable active learning at scale and how we implement it at our school a novel classroom spaces and web-based tools.
• Discuss and address challenges of our implementation
• Discuss strategies for faculty development
