Active Learning Sessions

Case-Based Discussions
Participants study cases related to pulmonary, critical care, or sleep medicine and use audience response systems (ARS) to respond to questions posed, then compare their responses with colleagues for instant feedback. This is for small to medium groups of participants using ARS, also marketed to participants as a BYOD (bring your own device). Chairs and faculty will work with educational design staff throughout the summer prior to the meeting to create content using standardized templates.
Staff Liaison: Teresa Rodriguez – trodriguez@chestnet.org

Interdisciplinary Programs
Interdisciplinary programs feature sessions that dive deep into topics from a multidisciplinary perspective. Faculty represents a variety of medical specialties, so teams can collectively experience practical, relevant updates. Sessions combine lecture-based, case-based, and interactive learning opportunities.
Staff Liaison: Abie Betts – abetts@chestnet.org

Interactive Session
ARS is used to involve participants in presentations, allowing them to respond to questions and compare group results.
Staff Liaison: Teresa Rodriguez – trodriguez@chestnet.org

Postgraduate Course
Full day courses that are focused studies on specific topics.
Staff Liaison: Julie Weldon – jweldon@chestnet.org

Problem-Based Learning
Real-world clinical problems are presented during small group, interactive sessions designed to exercise critical thinking skills based on guidelines. The goal of problem-based learning is to help the participants develop flexible knowledge, effective problem solving skills, self-directed learning, effective collaboration skills and intrinsic motivation. Working in groups, participants identify what they already know, what they need to know, and how and where to access new information that may lead to resolution of the problem. Faculty facilitate learning by supporting, guiding, and monitoring the learning process. Participants will access resources in advance of the session and come prepared to work on the problem during the live session. Chairs and faculty will work with educational design staff prior to the meeting to create content using standardized templates.

Self Directed Learning

GAMEs - Games Augmenting Medical Education
GAMEs use game-thinking and mechanics for the express goal of improving medical education. Serious games offer the ability to extend learning outside of the classroom and can offer attractive options in experiencing the complexity of the real world within a simulated environment. Chairs and faculty will work with educational design staff prior to the meeting to create content using selected templates.
