Overview 

The facilitation of active learning on the part of our medical students and residents is the main function of all medical educators. The more learners are asked to recall, expand, prioritize, summarize, differentiate, and connect, the deeper their understanding will be. This workshop will review how to incorporate active learning into various kinds of instructional practice, and will provide concrete, easy to implement tips for educators.

This session is part of a "by-request" series of workshops on teaching and learning. Once restrictions on gatherings have been lifted, departments or other groups can request this workshop as an in-person session by filling out this form, or emailing Chelsea_Reyes@brown.edu.
