When Learners Say:
“But We Had to Teach Ourselves!"

When we encourage autonomous and self-directed learning in the health professions, many learners don’t welcome our efforts. In fact, most learners seem to like it better when we to tell them what they need to know and do. There are reasons why students resist becoming independent learners, and there are strategies educators can use to diminish this reaction. We’ll explore both during this interactive session.

About the HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership

Established in June 2011, the HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership seeks to:

  • Enhance teaching and learning on UofL's Health Sciences Campus by providing meaningful and relevant professional development opportunities for faculty;
  • Share unit resources to promote campus-wide conversations about best practices in teaching and learning in the health sciences; and
  • Address accreditation calls for continuous quality improvement to the curriculum by offering participants concrete teaching strategies and "take-aways" for immediate implementation and relevant resources to foster further exploration and learning.

The partnership steering committee is comprised of unit representatives from Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, the School of Public Health and Information Sciences (SPHIS), and the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning. With support from the deans of each school, the steering committee works together to deliver two significant professional development programs for HSC faculty annually.
