From the 2023 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference
Presented by Cristy Creighton-Moss, MBBS, MLS(ASCP)CM, and Marianne Downes, PhD, MLS(ASCP)CM
This session includes two presentations:
Altogether Now! Early Introduction of Case-Based Learning for Success in Clinical Chemistry
Clinical Chemistry is (arguably) one of the most content-dense areas in the laboratory, with its inclusion of biochemistry, physiology & pathology; and some students struggle to integrate didactic information with clinical scenarios. Engage students early and often with case-based, active learning strategies intended to improve retention and strengthen neural networks necessary for retrieval of information.
Teaching Case Studies in Immunohematology
Original, open-access and creative commons licensed immunohematology case-studies will be presented and shared. Additionally we will discuss ideas for adapting fair-use materials for use to multiple levels of students (MLT, MLS, and graduate).
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Differentiate between active and passive learning.
- Identify ways early integration of case-based learning is beneficial for the medical laboratory sciences student.
- Summarize current methods for integration of case-based activities into routine lecture / discussion sessions with students.
- Define fair-use and open access resources.
- Identify resources for case-study materials.
- Adapt immunohematology materials for use in their own classrooms.
