Utilizing Active Learning Strategies in an Eight-week Hematology Course

From the 2020 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (February 28, 2020)
Presented by Stephanie Cochrane, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM
This interactive session will discuss how active learning strategies were incorporated into the didactic portion of an eight-week hematology course with aims to promote critical thinking skills, reinforcement of concepts, collaborative work, and to close gaps in learning. Strategies include bingo, case studies, crossword puzzles, game-based learning, and collaborative quizzes.


At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to
1. Identify the common problems/issues encountered by MLT/MLS programs, as the number of clinical microbiology sites for student placement continues to decrease.
2. Evaluate solutions and alternatives implemented by these two programs facing shortages of clinical microbiology sites for students.
3. Create strategies for redesigning alternative clinical microbiology experience for their own MLT/MLS program.
