Two Really Important Elements of Higher Education: Data and Professors

A study by Paul D. Umbach of Indiana University and Matthew R.
Paula Iaeger PhD's insight:

I could not agree more with this article including this quote. "Our findings suggest that students report higher levels of engagement and learning at institutions where faculty members use active and collaborative learning techniques, engage students in experiences, emphasize higher-order cognitive activities in the classroom, interact with students, challenge students academically, and value enriching educational experiences."

Paula Iaeger PhD's insight:

“To really be at the forefront, you also must have state-of-the-art facilities — the best classrooms, the best clinical and teaching centers, the best open spaces in which students can learn, and the best equipment" Further in the article it says they need this to allow students and faculty to educate themselves .... - In my opinion until teaching faculty are trained on the equipment (a slow process) and perceive teaching as important as medicine all the bells and whistles will just generate more noise.

Paula Iaeger PhD's insight:

"Unfortunately, the significant changes being made to improve healthcare are not being met by comparable changes in what and how we educate medical and other health professional students. "  Lecture-based lessons, little assessment of collaborative efforts, and failure of faculty to learn from educators all contribute to poor learning outcomes. In my opinion, effective teaching is critical.

Nice helpful article about UBC Professor Roland Stull with a reminder that we must all assess the use of technology in a classroom and plan for the implementation.  Rushing headlong into adopting something like clickers can be fraught with dangers and interfere with learning.  It is best to phase in types of innovation when everything has been tested.

Critical thinking is the topic of the QEP for UT MD Anderson and part of my research in promoting engaged learning so it is always on my radar. My dissertation and research is focused on Africa so this is crossed all three areas for me.
