Were you unable to attend the Evidence-Based Teaching (EBT) group this week but want to catch-up on the discussion? If so, a video recording and session handouts are available on the Education Resources website. Closed-captioning for the recording is being completed by IBM’s Watson artificial intelligence tool.

The next EBT group meeting be held from 11 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, March 6 in room W202. You are invited to attend!

The meeting topic is "Active Learning: Evidence-based Teaching for Good Precepting" and will be led by Makoto Tsuchiya, Sports Medicine; Richard Van Eck, Education Resources; and Devon Olson & Annie Nickum, Library Resources.

Formal education of health professionals includes learning in clinical settings as well as classrooms, yet these environments and the faculty who teach in them are often very different. This means that the teaching approaches will look different, even when using the same strategies. In many cases, preceptors lack the tools to teach effectively in the clinic or office and may not always recognize opportunities to apply effective teaching methods “just-in-time.” Good precepting is a critical asset to health care education. This session will help preceptors apply evidence-based teaching strategies within the constraints of time and space in clinical settings.

The Evidence-Based Teaching group meets monthly at the same time. This group will host topics as determined by expressed interest of its members. It is free and open to anyone—no RSVP needed! If you are interested in anything related to Evidence-Based Teaching (assessment, online learning, precepting, active learning, simulation, ADA compliance, or any topic you see fit) join us and let us know what you’d like to see at future meetings. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Adrienne Salentiny, adrienne.salentiny@med.und.edu.
