Teaching With Intent: Secrets From the Masters
With purposeful education one of the four strategic themes of the College, growing and training members who have a passion for education and a willingness to be involved in the College’s educational endeavors is a key goal. At ACC.17, the “Teaching With Intent – Secrets From the Masters” half-day Intensive course will offer attendees that fit this description an opportunity to learn from and network with current ACC faculty.
"This intensive will provide a foundation for understanding adult learning principles, moving education ‘beyond the classroom’ as well as providing valuable instruction on developing your presentations.” — Rick A. Nishimura, MD, MACC
The “mini course” will feature three separate sessions co-chaired by Rick A. Nishimura, MD, MACC, Patrick T. O’Gara, MD, MACC, past president of the ACC, and Craig Alpert, MD, a Fellow in Training (FIT) at the University of Michigan, with faculty appearances from Shashank Sinha, MD, past-chair of ACC’s FIT Section; Marcia Jackson, PhD; and Julie Damp, MD, FACC, chair of ACC’s Cardiovascular Training Section, among others. The Intensive will be a mix of ACC-Talk lectures, question and answer sessions, and interactive activities to engage attendees while showcasing outstanding teachers in action.
“This intensive will provide a foundation for understanding adult learning principles, moving education ‘beyond the classroom,’ as well as providing valuable instruction on developing your presentations,” says Nishimura.
The first session will focus on approaches to planning learning activities, followed by sessions on delivering effective presentations and informal teaching opportunities, respectively. “Attendees can look forward to accompanying us on a guided tour of innovative teaching methods across a wide range of learning environments, all united by a shared emphasis on deliberate practice,” says Alpert. “In doing so, we aim to engage members at every career stage in order to build a multidisciplinary community of medical educators within the ACC that can share its best practices.”
“The design and delivery of effective education for our members can no longer rely on the didactic models of the past,” says O’Gara. “Individual learner needs vary widely, and educational programming has to account not only for tremendous explosion of medical knowledge that has occurred over the past decade but also methods to optimize the learning process. Our ultimate goal in this teaching intensive is to show how active learning can reduce knowledge and performance gaps and improve the care of patients.”
Attendees are encouraged to attend all three segments for a comprehensive study of the topic.
The Teaching With Intent: Secrets From the Masters Intensive will take place Friday, March 17, from 12:15 – 6:00 p.m. in Room 152 A.
