Introducing the Office of Active Learning
The UVM Larner College of Medicine has made a bold pledge - to become 100 percent lecture-free by 2019. In fall 2016, the College was at about 50% active learning and since then, the number has increased steadily thanks to the tireless work of dedicated faculty and support from the newly created Office of Active Learning. With Associate Professor of Surgery, Jesse Moore, M.D. at the helm as the director of these initiatives, the College is now at 67% active learning and poised to hit its goal. Moore's team has also been growing to meet the needs of faculty and students and now includes project manager, Cara Simone; educational developers, Julia O'Connor and Michele Smolik; and instructional designers, Karina Lopez, and Matt Bresler.
