With the 2022 TBLC Meeting just around the corner, we would like to bring attention to one of our featured workshops: Use of Vignettes for the Application Exercises During TBL to Enhance Reasoning and Decision-Making Skills in the Health Sciences Education. This session will be presented by Sarah Lerchenfeldt, Sandeep Bansal and Mark Hernandez. We hope you enjoy this session!
Title: Use of Vignettes for the Application Exercises During TBL to Enhance Reasoning and Decision-Making Skills in the Health Sciences Education
Presented by: Sarah Lerchenfeldt – Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine
Sandeep Bansal – TCU & UNTHSC School of Medicine
Mark Hernandez – Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine
Date & Time: Tuesday, April 12, 2022, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM Eastern and Tuesday, April 19, 2022, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM Eastern
Educators who use team-based learning play a variety of roles in the educational institutions in which they work. Regardless of their specific roles, many of them are connected in a direct or indirect way to the processes of curriculum development that can influence the success of TBL activities in enhancing reasoning and decision-making in health sciences education. The proposed workshop is designed to provide innovative strategies that will equip participants with the skills to develop valuable case scenarios to elevate their students’ reasoning and decision-making skills. Most educational institutions had to transition to virtual learning due to the Covid-19 pandemic. During this time, they learned to acclimatize with the unique situation rapidly by adopting remote teaching. The aim now is to leverage those experiences to enhance reasoning and decision-making with in-person interactions during TBL sessions when it is safe to return to in-person exercises. This highly interactive workshop will introduce participants to a step-by-step process of developing case scenarios, the necessary tools, and sample approaches such as the use of pre-recorded simulated scenes, or Matchy-Matchy exercises to enable them to successfully enhance critical thinking and decision making. A toolkit consisting of instructions on what has been presented at the workshop will then be provided to the participants.
We hope you enjoy this and our other exciting workshops.
