KUMC Exemplar Courses: Friday, May 3, 2013, 12 noon - 1 pm, 1015 Orr Major

Please join us for another session in which KUMC faculty demonstrate how they are using technology in their courses. In this session, see…

Renee Rowell (HIM):
Renee has used Adobe Connect in group discussions in Legal 520 and an interactive discussion board in Pathophysiology 435 to engage students in both an online and hybrid learning environment. If you are looking for ideas to improve student engagement, you may be interested in her presentation.

Jim Fishback and Bob Klein (SoM):
Histopathology labs in the medical school are piloting a peer-teaching model where students in each room (21 students) are divided into 3 teams. In each lab session, one group constructs a team atlas and teaches the remaining students until all groups have had the opportunity to teach. The lab instructors evaluate the groups’ effort at the end of each lab session and assign points, based on the quality of the learning experience and enduring materials (histopathology atlas).

No RSVP is needed. Questions? Contact Dave Antonacci (x8-7144) in TLT.
