IAMSE Webinar – Going Lecture Free for Gen Z
March 14, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 pm
The Wright Curriculum, a lecture free curriculum, began in 2017 at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine, with the goal of having students become self-directed learners using evidence-based teaching and learning activities. We have several aims with this curriculum. First, help students develop skills in critical thinking. Second, help students learn how to discover the best evidence to make decisions. Third, give students the skills to keep learning throughout a life of service in the practice of medicine.
Since Peer Instruction is being utilized in over 60% of our curricular time, we will spend more time discussing Peer Instruction, from the faculty perspective in developing session material and how to effectively facilitate sessions, and from the student perspective in how learning gains are made in the sessions.
At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
- Explain the evidence and rationale for using active learning strategies throughout medical school, and how active learning strategies contribute to student attendance and team-work.
- Formulate effective approaches to implementing a lecture-free curriculum that is grounded in science, specifically using the teaching modality of Peer Instruction (PI).
- Introduce best-practice strategies, tips, and lessons learned from going lecture-free.”
