Bedside Teaching COURSE

*CME Accredited

Teaching at the bedside with live patients in real time can be a powerful learning experience; however, fast-paced clinical settings, time constraints and lack of confidence can be a deterrent to using this methodology for some educators. Current research shows that educating healthcare providers about the importance of bedside teaching and providing them with practical essentials would foster effective bedside teaching and promote a conducive learning climate. This workshop, taught in tandem with a clinical educator and a curriculum developer, will highlight techniques to create a positive, effective learning experience and offer insights from senior clinical educators about how they implement these techniques in their setting. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their own bedside teaching successes and struggles and collaborate with the session leaders on how to enhance their teaching practice By the end of this course, participants will be able to: 1. Identify the purpose of bedside teaching. 2. Recognize effective bedside teaching strategies. 3. Discuss how to implement these strategies in your setting.

Effective Question Asking for Educators COURSE

*CME Accredited | **CNE Accredited

Question-asking is one of the simplest and most effective tools educators have to monitor learner understanding and to provoke critical thinking and problem-solving. To ask questions effectively, educators need to consider what type of knowledge — facts, comprehension, synthesis, analysis or evaluation – they want the learner to demonstrate and ask questions that will elicit the desired type of knowledge. In this workshop, we will discuss how to use Bloom’s Taxonomy of learner levels to create effective questions in clinical teaching settings and will practice these skills using scenarios. Setting a positive learning environment is key to effective question asking. We will identify how ineffective questioning practices can harm the learning environment and detract from learning. By the end of this course, participants will be able to: 1. Describe how Bloom’s Taxonomy can be used to guide question asking. 2. Contrast effective question-asking practices with pimping. 3. Identify places in your teaching where you can incorporate effective question asking.

Professionalism is a core competency of medical residents and fellows (trainees) in residency and fellowship training programs. Patients, medical societies and accrediting organizations expect physicians to be professional. Therefore, teaching faculty should be able to identify unprofessional behavior and teach and assess medical professionalism in the clinical learning environment. However, training programs often struggle with educating trainees in the area of professionalism. In addition, there is a general lack of consensus regarding how to define, teach, assess and remediate trainees who have lapses in professionalism. The purpose of this course is to help teaching faculty identify unprofessional behavior and organize appropriate instruction, assessment methods, and remediation processes for professionalism for their trainees. At the end of this course, participants will be able to: 1. Identify unprofessional behaviors of trainees. 3. Recall approaches to assessing professionalism.

2. Recall approaches to teaching professionalism. 4. Define the purposes of assessment and evaluation in education. Office of Curriculum and Educational Development 2024 Course Catalog | 7
