Faculty development webinar presented by Des Moines University and the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE)

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change” – Charles Darwin

The education of students at the preschool through University level is rapidly changing, and instructors who understand the basis of these changes will be most effective educators. Most of the curriculum innovations are developed and supported by research on teaching and learning. This presentation will review the impact of Bloom’s Taxonomy, Knowles’ theory of the Adult Learner, and Kolb’s 4-Stage Learning Cycle on the classroom and curriculum.

Assessment of learning is also changing, moving from measuring knowledge (learning objectives) to skills (competencies). In the shift to competencies, today’s mentor must stimulate and monitor the professional development of their students and trainees. In USA, medical residents are assessed by competencies which include Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Ethics and Medical Professionalism, and Systems-Based Practice. In this changing environment, the essential role of the teacher remains unchanged: to create an effective learning environment, to provide direction for the learner, and to model effective learning behaviors.

Presenter
