Looks Are Everything (but content is still king): Developing Visually Appealing Online Modules
Presenters/Faculty: Amit Shah, M.D., and Lindsay Oksenberg, M.A., medical illustrator
Description: Educators often develop online or web-based curricula that are excellent in content but due to their lack of visual appeal, never get widely used. Trainees today expect that curricula that will use today’s technology and be interactive. Curricula that use a mix of visual, auditory, and traditional written text have the greatest chance of appealing to learners of various learning styles. Educators usually have little training on developing such curricula or how to work with others such as illustrators or web designers to make such curricula.
This workshop, led by a medical illustrator and faculty member who worked on modules for the SAGE geriatrics curriculum, will teach tips and techniques such as storyboarding, scripting, working with an illustrator, and pitfalls to avoid when developing online modules.
Target Audience: Faculty who are considering “flipped learning” or developing online learning modules
MedHub: Implementation of an Enterprise Resident Management System (RMS)
Presenters/Faculty: Corey J. Parker, M.P.A., Brad Marple, M.D., Mike Holmes
Description: The purpose of this session is to explore the process for implementing an enterprise residency management system. We will cover the history of RMS systems at UTSW prior to Medhub and why the institution decided to move to one central system and how the move prepares GME for the Next Accreditation System (NAS).
In addition, the workshop will cover MedHub’s offerings, functionality, and go-live timelines. Attendees will have an opportunity to view the web-based platform in real-time. By the end of the session, participants should have a stronger familiarity with the product and a greater understanding of MedHub’s impact on the GME office and the institution at large.
Target Audience: GME Program Directors, Coordinators, and Teaching Faculty
Moodlerooms: Basic and Advanced Uses
Presenter: Kim Hoggatt Krumwiede, M.A.
Description: Learning Management Systems (LMS) have functionalities that can be utilized for many types of courses and educational activities. This workshop will cover Moodlerooms LMS uses in the educational environment.
Moodlerooms can be used to support traditional lecture-based courses, blended courses with both classroom and online components, and computer-supported courses utilizing technology in models such as “flipped” classrooms or team-based learning. Participants will have hands-on experience with Moodlerooms and acquire tangible skills to use in online course development.
Participants will need to bring a laptop or tablet and be able to connect to and interact with the UTSW Moodlerooms site for hands-on demonstrations.
Target Audience: Faculty currently involved using Moodlerooms for online course development.
Online Resources for Teaching Evidence Based Medicine
Presenter: Jennie Hocking, M.P.A.S., PA-C
Description: Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is a key component of both the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and Physician Assistant (PA) Practice-Based Learning and Improvement Competencies. Our program’s traditional approach to teaching EBM-related concepts required a significant amount of classroom lecture time, leaving little time to practice and hone skills in literature evaluation.
This presentation will discuss the identification and evaluation of online and mobile resources that can be used to facilitate either an online or blended approach to the introduction to evidence-based medicine.
Target Audience: EBM instructors/mentors and other instructors interested in a blended learning approach
Simulation Up-Close and Personal. A tour of a high-fidelity simulation lab followed by a discussion of integrating simulation into medical education
Presenters: Ravi Bhoja, M.D. and James Griffin, M.D.
Description: Simulation has endless applications in medical education including procedural training, integration of the basic and clinical sciences, team training, performance assessment, quality improvement, and crisis management--among many others. In this workshop, we will tour the simulation lab at UT Southwestern and highlight the capabilities of simulation. There will also be a discussion of effective strategies and ideas for application of simulation into the curricula of medical students and residents. We will also present video clips of scenarios conducted with residents to illustrate high-fidelity simulation.
Target Audience: Basic Science and Clinical Medicine Educators
