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.
Mentoring Skills Workshop Series
The Mentoring Skills workshops are designed to enhance participants effectiveness in mentoring students. Designed as a three-part series, each session introduces new content while building on the previous session's learnings to support participants' development as mentors. Read more here.
