          Instructional Design: How Best to Optimize the Learning Process
          Read more

          This online seminar and its accompanying article focus on the topic of Instructional Design, which has been defined as a body of knowledge that prescribes actions to optimize learning outcomes, therefore linking learning theory to educational practice. The systematic design of instruction entails all steps necessary to ensure the development of high-quality learning experiences. Our guest speaker, Dr. Atsusi “2c” Hirumi, shares with us some key instructional design concepts and his important work on agile evidence-based design which facilitates an effective implementation of instructional design steps into the educational process.

          Metacognition: Do You Really Know What You Think You Know?
          Read more

          This online seminar focuses on the topic of metacognition. Defined in the literal sense as “thinking about thinking,” it is a crucial part of effective learning and is often insufficiently emphasized. Our guest speaker Dr. James Folkestad, who is a professor in the School of Education of Colorado State University (CSU) and a faculty member within the Organizational Learning, Performance, and Change (OLPC) Program, shares with us his important work on metacognition and behavior modification.
          We hope this session will empower faculty and students alike to incorporate the principles of metacognition in their daily educational practices.

          This online seminar focuses on the evidence-based method of retrieval practice to help conquer the “forgetting curve” and foster durable learning in medical students. We examine the science behind the educational practices of spaced retrieval, active recall, and the testing effect, and suggest applications for your physical and digital classrooms. These strategies are backed by years of cognitive research and support the goal of enabling learners to retain critical lifelong medical knowledge.

              This online seminar provides an in-depth understanding of spacing and interleaving as powerful learning and teaching strategies. Based on the latest findings of cognitive science, these techniques can make teaching more effective and learning more durable. These strategies do not always feel easy to apply, but you will learn why these difficulties are desirable. We explore how spacing and interleaving work and share practical recommendations on their integration into both physical and digital medical classrooms.

                Acquisition and retention of knowledge are foundational for the educational process, and in turn for medical practice. This is why implementing learning strategies, which have been found to be effective at ensuring long-term retention of knowledge, is so important. This online seminar explores how an understanding of memory and its different types can be employed within the context of medical education and provide hands-on recommendations for educators to make learning more effective.

                Read more

                Well-being in medicine has been the subject of much discussion, driven by the fulfilling yet demanding nature of medical professions. The pandemic has not only reinforced the need to enhance well-being in its physical, mental, and emotional dimensions, it has created new challenges for medical practitioners, students, and educators. Overcoming these challenges requires a fundamental rethinking of existing strategies and exploring new ways to mitigate burnout and nurture well-being in medical education and practice. This session illuminates the drivers of burnout and the approaches to enhance well-being from three different perspectives, showcasing some fresh and much-needed practical solutions.
