Competency-Based Education: Teaching in the 21st Century

Competency-based education is more than just a buzz phrase. Join us as we explore the core components of competency-based education, including developing an outcomes-based framework, describing the progression of learning, and creating tailored learning experiences and assessments. You will learn about the potential challenges to implementation and leave with strategies to successfully employ competency-based education in your program.

Change can be difficult, especially large-scale curricular change, and we want to set you up for success. Understanding the full scope of your program’s curriculum (i.e., pre-clinical through clinical) is important in the development of a competency-based model. Therefore, it may be useful to have two representatives from each program attend the workshop with representation from the following areas: pre-clinical, clinical, curriculum development, assessment, or program leadership.

Recruiting for Excellence 2.0

While the PA applicant pool remains robust, a commitment to recruiting a diverse workforce with a focus on inclusive excellence is necessary to meet the needs of diverse patient populations and reduce pervasive health disparities.

At this one-day workshop, you will:

  • Learn strategies for cultivating inclusive climates for students and faculty
  • Identify systemic barriers that inhibit recruitment for underrepresented students and faculty
  • Identify best practices that can help to recruit a diverse, talented applicant and faculty pool
  • Learn how to define diversity at your program and develop strategies for demonstrating “active commitment”

Integrating Technology in Teaching and Learning

This workshop is designed to help educators develop an approach to technology integration in the classroom. Presenters will share lessons and project ideas used both in the didactic and clinical curricula. Leveraging the skills, experiences, and perspectives of the presenters and participants, the workshop will allow for creation of new material, enhancement of existing material, and implementation of evolving ideas. In the spirit of “see one, do one, teach one,” participants will be given the opportunity to develop their own project (e.g., lesson plan, interactive activity, presentation, lecture, etc.) from the experiences gained in this workshop.  The workshop will cover tools across platforms (Apple, PC) and cater to the diversity and inclusion of all learning styles.

In order to maximize the experience, it is highly recommended that participants bring any/all mobile devices that they use regularly, regardless of whether these are used in a teaching environment. The intended audience is educators who consider themselves novice to intermediate with regards to technology in the classroom.

Tips & Tricks for Successfully Publishing Scholarly Work in an International Journal on Medical Education

In publishing scholarly work, numerous important factors, in addition to the writing skills of the author, need to be considered. Equally important is the strategy used for submitting the work to the most appropriate journal. It is also useful to know how the editorial office and editorial board of a journal handle the manuscripts they receive. Knowledge of these last two aspects can significantly increase the chances for acceptance of a manuscript. In this workshop, attendees will gain insight into the editorial process of journals and learn about several concrete strategies to increase the chances of acceptance of their work. This workshop is intended for those with no or little experience in submitting manuscripts to journals of medical education.
