    The Faculty Learning Community (FLC) on medical education research is established as one approach to supporting faculty development and growth as scholars of teaching and educational research and to bringing together a diverse group of individuals who can share experience as they undertake teaching and research activities. The FLC is open to any junior, mid-career, senior faculty, and staff members across multiple disciplines who are involved and interested in teaching, continuing learning, and scholarship of teaching. Learn more about the FLC.

    Topic: Online Tools for Collaboration
    Presenter: Keith Engwall, Assistant Professor and Web & Emerging Technologies, Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine
    Time: 12:00 noon -1:00pm
    Location: Room #100, Kresge Library
    Description:
    Collaboration doesn't have to stop when you're not in the same room. We all have busy schedules, and finding time to be in the same place at the same time can be extremely difficult. The original intent of the Internet was to provide infrastructure for remote collaboration and while e-mail is still an effective means to communicate, new tools for online collaboration have evolved. This workshop will provide an overview of several categories of collaboration tools, including Evernote, Skitch, Dropbox, and a few other tools, and will discuss issues such as system requirements, password overload, content preservation and privacy.
    Participants will come away with a better understanding of online tools for collaborative creation and sharing of files, documents and bibliographies, images and diagrams, real-time and asynchronous communication, as well as issues relating to using collaborative tools.

    Time: 12noon-1:00pm
    Location: Room #100, Kresge Library
    Description for FLC session:Description:
    Many of the “hot topics” in medical education, such as simulation, team-based learning, and interprofessional education, harness situated learning theory, which posits that what people know is inextricably tied to the contexts in which they acquire and apply knowledge. In this session, we will discuss how we can connect theory to practice in both our teaching and our scholarship. We will explore ways to make learning environments more authentic to medical practice in order to facilitate students’ development of medical skills, attitudes, and knowledge. We will reflect on our current successes and the barriers to providing authentic contexts for our students. Finally, we will discuss strategies for overcoming barriers and lay foundations for new ways to situate learning in more engaging and authentic contexts

    Topic: Brain à la Mode: How Chess Expertise Informs Education

    Time: 12:00 noon -1:00pm
    Location: Room #225B, Kresge Library
    Dr. Oakley will share with us her knowledge and views on learning and teaching from the perspectives in neuroscience. At the end of her talk, you will be able to
    --Describe how and why hemispheric processing differences provide insight related to chess expertise as well as to everyday learning.
    --Explain how bottom up “chunking” and top down global approaches both play important roles in learning.
    --Integrate recent findings about recall versus concept mapping into your teaching.
    --Explain how the concept of Einstellung relates to the answer on a test occurring after the test is turned in—and how this relates to hemispheric approaches to learning.
    --Describe how focal and fringe concepts of consciousness relate to learning.
    Barbara Oakley, PhD, PE is an Associate Professor of Engineering in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Oakland University. Her work focuses on the complex relationship between neurocircuitry and social behavior. Oakley is a recipient of the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Frontiers in Engineering New Faculty Fellow Award and a number of teaching awards. Prior to her academic career, Oakley also rose from the ranks of Private to Captain in the U.S. Army, during which time she was recognized as a Distinguished Military Scholar. Oakley is an elected fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering and the author of Coldblooded Kindness (Prometheus Press, 2011), Evil Genes (Prometheus Press, 2008), and Hair of the Dog (WSU Press, 1996). She was also lead editor of Pathological Altruism (Oxford University Press, 2012) and co-editor of Career Development in Bioengineering and Biotechnology (Springer, 2008).

    Topic: Cognitive Overload: How to Present Information Your Students
    Presenter: Jill Stefaniak, MTD, CPLP, Director of Education Training, Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine
    Time: 12:00 noon -1:00pm
    Location: Room #100, Kresge Library
    This session will discuss three types of cognitive load that can have an impact on a student’s academic performance. Strategies that can assist with alleviating cognitive overload will be presented. A template to assist you in preventing cognitive overload from occurring will be shared.
    Upon completion of this session, you will be able to:
    --Define the three types of cognitive load: intrinsic, extrinsic, and germane.
    --Distinguish the difference between traditional instructional strategies and learner-centered instructional strategies.
    --Identify 3 learner-centered instructional strategies that you can incorporate within your classroom.
    Please join us for the seminar!
