The Future is Now Webinar
Facilitating Active Student-Centered Learning
We believe the [immediate] future of medical education lies in design and delivery of active, student-centered learning (SCL) experiences. To realize opportunities afforded by COVID-19, medical educators should consider facilitating active learning experiences that integrate the core science concepts with clinical reasoning skills to prepare outstanding physicians who “do no harm.”
Webinar [XX] is intended to foster your ability to facilitate active SCL by demonstrating how such experiences are designed and delivered.
To achieve our goal, before the Webinar, you are to:
1. Explore resources on active SCL (listed below) prior to the scheduled Webinar;
2. Consult with designated members of the Active SCL team
Then, during the Webinar, you will
3. Collaborate with us and with other Webinar participants to design active SCL experiences; and
4. Share what you learned during and after the Webinar to consolidate your knowledge and facilitate transfer.
As with all active, SCL experiences, what you derive from this Webinar will be directly proportional to what you put input the experience. The more time and effort you put into exploring the resources before the Webinar, the greater will be the depth and breadth of your understanding and experience. During the Webinar, you may take either an active role in designing an active, SCL experience and sharing your experience OR you may choose to observe and listen to others. Either way, we believe you will gain valuable insights into how to create active, SCL learning experiences.
