A faculty member can use the skills for leading an effective discussion and encouraging active student participation in a variety of instructional formats including case studies, problem-based learning, and small group discussions. The session will begin with an introduction by the facilitator, who will describe the roles and expectations just as we would with learners in real life. A handout derived from Tools for Teaching will serve as the basis for the discussion.

During this session scholars will:

  • Participate in three groups and subsequent debriefings.
  • Interact with expert small group facilitators to address personal facilitation challenges.
  • Discuss and formulate successful strategies for creating, leading and guiding discussions, and for asking and responding to questions.
  • Practice leading a small group session during a hands-on group exercise.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the characteristics of different kinds of small groups.
  • List two factors for success and two pitfalls to avoid in development of new small group sessions.
  • Create guidelines for asking and responding to questions.

Teaching and Assessing Reflective Ability in Medical Education

Led by:

Louise Aronson, MD, MFA
Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine, Department of Medicine, Division of Geriatrics

Marieke Kruidering, PhD
Associate Professor, Department of Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology


Critical reflection is the skill used to transform experience into learning. Reflection correlates highly with lifelong learning, decreases diagnostic errors and improves clinical performance. Reflective professionals have open minds; think about their own thinking; learn more deeply; connect with their feelings; consider perspectives other than their own; strive to learn from rather than deny or ignore errors, problems and learning gaps; and reframe their thinking to formulate reasoned approaches to clinically uncertain and complex situations.

During this workshop, participants will:

  • Discuss reflection in medical education.
  • Rate critical reflections by UCSF trainees from more to less effective.
  • Practice giving feedback on UCSF trainees’ reflections.
  • Identify milestones or competencies for which critical reflection would improve the ability to assess learners’ progress.


By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe critical reflection as used by educators.
  • Discuss the key components of critical reflection.
  • Provide meaningful feedback on critical reflection.
  • List one way in which adding critical reflection would improve learning or assessment in their UCSF course or clerkship.

Reviewing Educational Abstracts

One goal of scholarship in health professions education is disseminating your work to others.  A first step is producing an abstract, which may be a short description of work that is published,  or a summary of scholarly work submitted for purposes of selection for presentation at a conference.  A related skill is critiquing abstracts. This involves recognizing the issues related to the quality of the education research, and formulating a well written review to aid the researcher in revising.

This is a hands-on session and a laptop is required.  A limited number of loaners may be available.

During this session, participants will:

  • Review characteristics and expectations of an abstract in the field of educational scholarship.
  • Develop a critique and discuss it in a group.
  • Complete reviews and critiques for assigned real abstracts using an online review form.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify elements in an abstract to consider in critiquing the content.
  • Write scholarly critiques of actual abstracts being selected for a conference.

Participants will practice these new skills in the workshop, specifically focusing on challenging cases of their own. We also welcome returning faculty to reinforce and build on previously attained skills.

For the second part of the session, we will invite a panel of local experts in remediation to make comments, and then field your questions about best practices (as they exist) for helping students and residents in need of larger-scale correction.

At the end of the session scholars will be able to:

  • Develop language and improve process of giving feedback to learners.
  • Recognize situations in which feedback is most appropriate and effective, and define instances in which feedback may be counter-productive.
  • Recognize and overcome personal obstacles to giving and receiving feedback.
  • Use newly-identified feedback skills in challenging real-life scenarios.
  • Set personal goals for applying the skills learned in this workshop to one's own practice setting, and review a tool designed to assess performance of new teaching skills.


During the session, participants will:

  • Review representative literature on feedback in medical education.
  • Define “feedback” and discuss past experiences to develop a formalized structure for giving feedback.
  • Practice their skills of giving feedback and identifying barriers to effective feedback.

Community-Based Educational Skills Workshop

Finding Clarity: Establishing Goals and Expectations


Led by:

Brad Sharpe, MD
Professor, Department of Medicine
UCSF School of Medicine
 

Teachers and learners can both benefit from clear goals and expectations.  Teachers often find themselves teaching without a good sense of what they are trying to accomplish, and consequently struggle with planning or focusing the interaction.  Students learn in multiple settings with different teachers, all of whom can have variable expectations which are often not clear.

Clearly established goals and expectations will allow the learner to know what he or she should master, guide the teaching in planning the teaching session, and provide both teachers and learners with a basis for evaluation and feedback.  After revealing ways to create a positive learning climate, this session will describe how to effectively establish, express, and negotiate goals and expectations. 

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
 

  • List three techniques to improve the learning climate
  • Recognize the effective establishment and expression of learner goals
  • Demonstrate the expression and negotiation of learner goals
  • Appreciate the importance of clearly establishing goals and expectations
  • Set personal goals for applying the skills learned in this workshop to one's own practice setting, and review a tool designed to assess performance of new teaching skills

Led by:

Robert B. Baron, MD, MS
Associate Dean, Graduate and Continuing Medical Education

Maintaining accreditation is an essential responsibility of GME program directors, associate program directors, core faculty, and program coordinators. Many changes to ACGME policies and procedures are underway as the ACGME implements the Next Accreditation System (NAS).  Many aspects of the new system will begin July 1, 2013.  This workshop outlines the changes to accreditation that programs can expect in the coming year and will provide tools, resources and expertise that programs can apply now.

The workshop will include presentations and an interactive panel discussion with program directors, core faculty members, senior staff, and other UCSF experts who are involved in implementation of the new system both at UCSF and nationally.  At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
 

  • Understand changes to ACGME accreditation policies and procedures.
  • Navigate new features in the ACGME Accreditation Data System (ADS).
  • Define new learner assessment requirements and identify ways to assess each learner's progress with milestones.
  • Leverage E*Value and other UCSF GME tools and resources to help you meet accreditation requirements.

Led by:

Calvin Chou, MD, PhD
Professor of Clinical Medicine
Department of Medicine, VAMC
Academy Chair for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Denise L. Davis, MD
Associate Clinical Professor
Department of Medicine, VAMC

Feedback is a fundamental tool of effective teaching and is a skill that, though easily learned, takes a lifetime to master. We will use the wisdom and experience of the entire group and review the literature to write a foolproof guide to giving effective feedback. Participants will practice these new skills in the workshop, specifically focusing on challenging cases of their own. We also welcome returning faculty to reinforce and build on previously attained skills.

For the second part of the session, we will invite a panel of local experts in remediation to make comments, and then field your questions about best practices (as they exist) for helping students and residents in need of larger-scale correction.

At the end of the session scholars will be able to:

  • Develop language and improve process of giving feedback to learners.
  • Recognize situations in which feedback is most appropriate and effective, and define instances in which feedback may be counter-productive.
  • Recognize and overcome personal obstacles to giving and receiving feedback.
  • Use newly-identified feedback skills in challenging real-life scenarios.
  • Define how and what to document for trainees requiring remediation.
  • Set personal goals for applying the skills learned in this workshop to one's own practice setting, and review a tool designed to assess performance of new teaching skills.


During the session, participants will:

  • Review representative literature on feedback in medical education.
  • Define “feedback” and discuss past experiences to develop a formalized structure for giving feedback.
  • Practice their skills of giving feedback and identifying barriers to effective feedback.
  • Deepen understanding of the remediation process through interaction with a panel of remediation experts from across the continuum of medical education.

Clinical teaching has received much attention in the medical education literature. Only recently, though, has the focus has been on learning processes that occur in clinical settings through experiences other than direct teaching. For example, how can faculty and staff effectively help learners take on meaningful and appropriate roles in patient care or QI activities, interactions with various health professionals, and managing their own self-directed learning and reflection? In this session we will highlight four key ideas from the workplace learning literature (sequencing, scaffolding/fading, intent participation, and invitational quality) that can be used to improve clinical and systems-oriented learning experiences for students and residents from different professions.

During this session, participants will:

  • Perform a task analysis to identify workplace learning opportunities.
  • Participate in an assessment activity that can be used as a tool to apply ideas such as sequencing and scaffolding/fading in ways that enrich the quality of students’ and residents’ learning experiences.  

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe students’ and residents’ learning experiences in terms of a workplace learning framework.
  • Design and implement strategies for guiding and sequencing clinical learning.

Now that educational programs are expected to address the six general competencies, faculty must begin to think about the teaching and assessment methods they use. Faculty need to learn to use program-wide performance data to inform curricular change. Participants will spend the afternoon discussing their current teaching and assessment methods, implementation strategies and challenges. For each competency several best practices will be identified and shared.

At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Examine their program’s evaluation system in light of others’ experiences.
  • Identify best teaching and assessment practices and understand what has led to their success.
  • Consider the steps necessary to prepare your program for a site visit.
  • Identify effective methods for teaching that target the competency areas.
  • Set personal goals for applying the skills learned in this workshop to one's own practice setting, and review a tool designed to assess performance of new teaching skills.
