Concurrent Sessions II

Faculty Vitality: How to sustain a meaningful career that keeps you (and them!) coming back for more: MaryAnn Campion, Clinical Associate Professor, Genetics

The session will begin with a short primer on positive psychology, faculty vitality, and the variables that increase one's risk of burnout in academic medicine. Dr. Campion will discuss practical tips for leveraging individual strengths and managing liabilities, incorporating intentional activities to increase effectiveness, and pushing beyond our comfort zones. Our time will be spent using a combination of think-pair-share dyads, individual reflection, and whole group discussion.

Instructional Backfires: Marily Oppezzo, Instructor, Medicine--Stanford Prevention Research Center

Instructional strategies that seem like a good idea and often work can backfire in certain situations and give you the opposite result. In this talk Dr. Oppezzo will present examples of these. For example, rewarding people for a good job seems like a good idea, but in some situations it can make them less motivated to try as hard in the future. Takeaways should include awareness of common mistakes in teaching and how to avoid them.

Making it Count Twice: Publishing in Medical Education Sylvia Bereknyei Merrell, Social Science Research Scholar, Surgery

In the first half of the workshop, we will review participants' educational research project utilizing the Kern criteria, and focus on needs assessment development and research question refinement. After reviewing participants' curriculum design, we will focus on the second half of the workshop by discussing the criteria for scholarship and dissemination opportunities for educational research. This workshop will guide participants with a mix of didactics and completion of a worksheet. Participants will leave with resources to design their own curriculum, examples of published curricula, and dissemination venues for medical education curricula.
