Building a Deep Learning Environment in the Health Sciences: What the Best Teachers Do

Sponsored by the HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership

How do we foster experts in our field who will both know all of the conventional wisdom on the various problems we face and be prepared to confront the unusual problem? In other words, how do we foster both routine and adaptive expertise? In this interactive session, we will explore some of the research on human learning and best practices to consider how we can begin to approach the next level of learning excellence and expertise in the health sciences.

Continuing Education Credit for Medical, Nursing, and Dentistry Faculty

The University of Louisville School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of Louisville Office of Continuing Medical Education & Professional Development designates this educational activity for a maximum of one AMA PRA Category 1 Credits(s)™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

School of Dentistry faculty should register online with the School of Dentistry and with the Delphi Center. Pre-registration for continuing education from the School of Dentistry should be completed by January 30, 2014.

An application will be sent to the Kentucky Board of Nursing for 1.2 continuing education credits through University of Louisville Hospital. The Kentucky Board of Nursing approval of an individual nursing education provider does not constitute endorsement of program content.

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 annually for HSC faculty.

It's Not (Just) About the Grades: Making Your Education Work for You

How do you get the most out of college? How do you become a highly creative and productive individual after college? You are a unique person with perspectives and ideas that no one else will develop on their own. How can you make the most of your special qualities? This interactive session will help you explore yourself and use who you are to become a highly creative person. It will be about you! The session is based on research on creativity and a study of 36 people who went to college and became highly creative and productive people--everyone from Stephen Colbert who changed the face of comedy, and Jeffrey Hawkins who invented
smart phones, to Mary Ann Hopkins, Reyna Grande, and Will Allen who each changed society.
