      Durable Learning Seminar
      Assessments: New Uses for an Old Tool
      Date: November 2, 2022
      Read more

      This online seminar and its accompanying article will focus on the different types of assessments that educators may use to measure how well the learning objectives have been achieved. Educators and students alike often think of an assessment as the final stop on the path of learning. Our current understanding of cognitive and neuroscience has taught us, however, that assessments can be an invaluable learning tool as well as a means of evaluation. Well-written assessments can determine mastery of material, grade or rank students, measure student progress, reinforce learning, motivate students, and provide feedback to instructors. Assessments include more than just written exams; they encompass any form of evaluation or appraisal of a student’s educational progress by formal or informal means.

      Active Learning: How to Engage Your Students
      Date: November 17, 2022

      Active learning has been shown to support and foster students’ engagement, metacognitive abilities, and long term recall of learned concepts. In the upcoming webinar, I will share some insights into active learning and its application in nursing education.

      We will review how elaboration, generation, and reflection work, including some concrete examples of how they can be applied in your classrooms. We will also discuss how technology can enhance and support the application of these techniques, including how it can monitor their impact.

          How to Implement a Flipped Classroom Model With Lecturio
          Date: November 30, 2022
          Read more

          The past few years have shown us what is possible if we move away from the traditional, face-to-face, synchronous classroom and demonstrated the utility of online learning. Medical and nursing schools and educators worldwide are moving to a hybrid approach, incorporating physical, online, synchronous, and asynchronous learning.

          The flipped classroom is one of the most common examples of hybrid teaching. Research indicates that using this approach can promote student-centered learning and collaboration, as well as improve outcomes. In an environment where educators are stretched thin, this allows them to adapt each lesson to the individual needs of their students and make the most of the limited synchronous time available.

          Join Dr. Adonis Wazir for an interactive demo session on November 30, at 14:00 CET, in which he will highlight the benefits of flipped classrooms and show how leading educators are using this method to make better use of valuable face-to-face time with their students. Additionally, he will demonstrate how educators can implement this model using Lecturio’s comprehensive digital medical education platform.

              This online seminar and its accompanying article will focus on the topic of Effective Presentations, which have a set of key qualities: they are appealing, engaging, informative, and concise. Effective presentations gain attention and captivate the audience, but most importantly, they convey information and ideas memorably and efficiently. Using evidence-based principles in educational multimedia can ensure the development of high-quality learning experiences. Our host, Dr. Peter Horneffer will be sharing with us some key multimedia concepts that can help facilitate the development and implementation of effective multimedia into the educational process.

              We hope this session will empower faculty to begin incorporating essential multimedia principles in their daily educational practices.

              Learning Objectives and Assessments: Evidence-Based Recommendations for Optimal Efficacy
              Date: September 14, 2022
              Read more

              This online seminar and its accompanying article will focus on learning objectives and assessments, which serve as essential elements to measure learning and ensure that students have grasped and acquired the intended concepts. Educators rely on observable behaviors and demonstrated knowledge as indicators of students’ skills, knowledge, and dispositions, which may include creating a concept map, demonstrating suturing skills, or communicating compassionately with patients. If a student could not successfully perform these objectives before instruction and can perform them after, it is presumed learning has occurred. These desired observable behaviors are defined and communicated in learning objectives, which are short statements of what a learner will be able to do as an outcome of instruction. Likewise, these desired skills and knowledge are measured by assessments, which are aligned with the objectives in order to optimize learning. 

               

              We hope this session will empower faculty to make the most of learning objectives and assessments in their daily educational practices.

                      Read more

                      ABSN programs present unique challenges to both students and faculty. Studies have found that ABSN degrees have higher attrition rates, and are more diverse in life experience, age, gender, and ethnicity than traditional nursing programs. Even predicting success has been found to be different, in that a correlation between preadmission science scores may not be the most accurate gauge of NCLEX success for ABSN students.

                      Join us for a collegial discussion, offering you tailor-made strategies for the success of ABSN students and the faculty who lead them.

                                    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.

                                          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.

                                          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.
