Understanding How We Learn: Throw Out Your Highlighter and Make Some Flashcards

Presented by Jonathan Sherbino, MD, MEd, FRCPC, FAcadMEd, Assistant Dean, Health Professions Education Research & Faculty of Health Sciences, McMaster University

After years of schooling, most physicians assume they have the process of learning pretty well figured out.  What if established patterns are inefficient... or worse... ineffective? This interactive session will present best practices for learning (and teaching) based on theories from neuroscience, cognitive psychology  and educational psychology. 

  • Medical & Bioscience Education Seminar Series

    The Teaching and Mentoring Academy's Medical & Bioscience Education Seminar Series (formerly the Medical Education Seminar Series) offers monthly seminars during the academic year. Our goal is to provide presentations to the SoM community on topics focused on improving instruction or mentoring, innovating in instructional delivery, or educational scholarship. See workshop dates and topics here
