Active Learning at Larner
The Larner College of Medicine delivers curriculum using evidence-based pedagogy, much as we rely on evidence-based medicine. Active learning teaching methods rely on student engagement to construct knowledge rather than passively absorb it from an expert. The focus of an active learning session is not on faculty transferring information, but on students developing skills such as clinical reasoning, analysis, and application. We are training doctors who have the capacity to synthesize information and think critically. This teaching methodology helps form the foundation of a body of knowledge that students will recall more easily for years to come.
The Curriculum Team, part of the Office of Medical Education, is comprised of a manager, curriculum coordinators, and instructional designers. Our mission is to support faculty and course directors.
