Ginzburg & Willey to Present “Strategies for Incorporating Self-Directed Learning into Basic Sciences Education”

Continuing with our exploration of how basic science education can be leveraged for student success, this sequel to our Winter series will expand upon the traditional roles of basic sciences and venture into unexplored areas. The IAMSE Spring 2022 webinar series will explore the domains that are cornerstones of medical education and closely align with accreditation elements for the LCME, COCA, and other accreditation bodies within the health professions. The final session in the series will feature Samara Ginzburg and Joanne Willey from the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell.

Strategies for Incorporating Self-Directed
Learning into Basic Sciences Education

Presenters: Samara Ginzburg, MD and Joanne Willey, PhD
Session Date & Time: March 31, 2022 at 12pm Eastern

This interactive session will begin with a brief overview of self-directed learning (SDL) in healthcare education and acknowledge some common challenges. The majority of the session will then focus on strategies that can be used in large and small group settings to promote the development of self-regulated learning skills needed for students to become self-directed. We will pay particular attention early learners and the basic science curriculum. We will close with a Q and A and consider lessons learned.
