Online Team Based Learning

Grading in an online discussion board is an onerous task but John Fritz
University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) has an interesting way to help.  Based on an instructor created rubric, students put together an online participation portfolio to justify the grade students think they should receive.  http://www.julnet.com/tblc/newsletter/tblc_newsletter_jan2014.html#fritz

When the NMC Higher Education Report comes out, the techno geek in me drools while the instructional designer in me looks at it with a critical eye.  Of particular interest to medical education is the flipped learning section beginning on Page 36.

As we begin our own journey into flipped learning, keep in mind that the choice of instructional strategies such as using instructional video to support learning needs to be carefully considered.  Look at Stanford’s examples, they are visual representations of integrated moderately complex issues, not just talking heads.  They are not really fancy, just well structured and visual.  Students can play these again and again as needed until they understand the entire process.  http://www.khanacademy.org/partner-content/stanford-medicine/tuberculosis/v/tb-pathogenesis
