Assessing Health Professional Education - Workshop Summary

Assessing Health Professional Education - Workshop Summary | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
In an era of evolving technology and changing health and health care environments, creative thinking about assessment methods and tools could be the driver for innovations that are affordable, easily integrated into education, and assess competencies at all levels. On October 9-10, 2013, the IOM Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education held a workshop to explore the challenges, opportunities, and innovations in assessment across the education-to-practice continuum. Issues such as assessment of learners and educators of IPE and team-based care were discussed.

Integrating Science and Practice in Pharmacy Curricula

Integrating Science and Practice in Pharmacy Curricula | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Mary Starry's insight:

Excellent review article on how a pharmacy school in the UK has truly integrated their curriculum.  Their modules involve faculty truly working as teams to build all the curricular components into activities and cases versus having different disciplines showing up on their different days to teach.  Nice to see how the silo walls can be broken down.

Annotate Video on the Fly: A Review of VidBolt – ProfHacker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Mary Starry's insight:

Many of us use YouTube videos as components of assignments or classes. When assigned outside of class, you often wish you could include some of your own comments and thoughts.  This tool allows you to do exactly that: add comments at specific points in the video. Marks across the bottom of the video help the student easily identify where annotations have been made.

From courses to micro-learning

From courses to micro-learning | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Micro-learning, micro-content, Learning Flows, and mlearning are some the current and upcoming trends in the world of learning and development. They all have a common denominator—they require very little “at-a-stretch” time commitment from learners/users.
Wikipedia describes micro-learning thus: Micro-learning can also be understood as a process of subsequent, "short" learning activities, i.e. learning through interaction with micro-content objects in small timeframes. ~ Wiki
Via Edumorfosis
Mary Starry's insight:
For blended and online courses, chunking content has been very successful because it matches well with human attention span. Micro-learning appears to be a new approach which encompasses content chunking and pulls in other short learning activities. I've found I hate to even start watching a course video longer than 10 minutes. The 8 to 10 minute time frame is perfect for focusing on and then thinking about.

Want Students to Come to Class Prepared? Try Rolling the Dice.

Believe it or not, introducing random chance into our classrooms can have a positive effect on how much students prepare—and how much they learn.
Mary Starry's insight:

Selection by random chance is a technique I've used for several years to encourage students to be prepared for activities in pharmacy practice lab.  I call this Pharmacy Mayhem for the students in the last didactic lab course prior to rotations, where a variety of learning materials on a specific topic are provided (i.e. respiratory). When students arrive at lab, some have been randomly chosen to counsel on self-care, some randomly chosen to counsel on Rx drugs, some randomly chosen to answer a tough question from the guidelines, etc. Students can be randomly selected to perform more than one activity during the lab as well.  Not knowing which activities they will actually participate in provides motivation to review all the assigned materials before the lab while adding an element of excitement at the beginning of each lab!

Creating learning objectives, flipped classroom style - Casting Out Nines - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Mary Starry's insight:

A common question with flipped classroom approaches is what should I expect the student to know before they show up for class and what objectives are still addressed within the classroom.  This author provides a simple but reasonable approach to identify those through organization of your learning objectives.

Regardless, a good review of what psychology has brought to learning pedagogy.

Mary Starry's insight:

Although we have a LMS that has upload capabilities for students, comments have to be added in a separate comment box instead of right at the appropriate spot in the document.  This sounds much easier for students to share (since many now upload their document into the wrong dropbox) and for faculty to annotate and comment.

Flipped learning skepticism: Is flipped learning just self-teaching? - Casting Out Nines - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Mary Starry's insight:

As this blog emphasizes, just flipping the classroom does not automatically create success.  You must create learning tools that engage  and stimulate learning among students while they are at class and faculty must be facilitating and encouraging meta-cognition, not sitting back while the students teach themselves.

Getting student buy-in for the inverted calculus class | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Mary Starry's insight:

Student buy-in will be key to having positive evaluations from students for active learning components, such as the flipped classroom. Some students are very comfortable with sitting in lecture and letting the teacher do all the work.  This article, part of a series on how the author flipped a calculus course, provides some excellent suggestions on how and how not to obtain student buy-in.  A key point is don't keep telling the students how wonderful and awesome your new approach is!!

Show the Learner Visible Signs of Their Learning

Show the Learner Visible Signs of Their Learning | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
“ One of the strengths of gamification is that it provides visible milestones of the student’s mastery of content in real time (when it is well designed). Too often in an instructional setting, the learner doesn’t know whether or not he or she really understands or can apply the knowledge they are learning. There is often no visible sign of mastery of the content or application of the content.”
Via Faculty Focus, Mark E. Deschaine Ph.D.
Mary Starry's insight:
The concept of mastery learning with scaffolding is very appealing to me. With professional students, every student should master the basics of each key concept. There should not be any students incompetent or failing at any competency they will be engaged in as a pharmacist. Using badges or other types of awards can then help students stay aware of where they are at as they work to master each competency.

The American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education - Reflective Practice and Its Implications for Pharmacy Education

The American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education - Reflective Practice and Its Implications for Pharmacy Education | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Mary Starry's insight:

This recent article provides a historical overview of the development of reflection in pharmacy education, including the impact of major researchers and pedagogy over time. The article then moves on to the tools used by various healthcare programs, including journals, blogs and portfolios, addressing both the positive and the negative aspects of both incorporating reflection and assessing reflection within the curriculum.

 

Reflection and learning portfolios are keywords for many pharmacy college assessment programs, but often incorporated into the curriculum without sufficient background understanding and structure to provide students the four variables identified as key:  self-direction, self-motivation, curiosity to learn more, and recognizing the learning value of past experiences.
