From the 2023 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference
Presented by Dawn Taylor, EdM, MLS(ASCP), and Allegra McMillen, MEd, MLS(ASCP)CM
This session includes two presentations:
Mind Mapping, One Tool for the Journey to Academic Success
Mind mapping is more than a flow chart or concept map. Mind mapping is a creative, active learning tool to help students organize and connect information. We will discuss the "rules" of mind mapping and one way to introduce the topic and teach students to successfully mind map.
One-Minute Preceptor Technique for Student Engagement
The one-minute preceptor technique has been used with success in non-laboratory medical education for engaging students, enhancing critical thinking, and providing an easy-to-remember framework with which faculty and preceptors can effectively teach principles in under five minutes. Whether teaching five students or 50, this method will allow you to more effectively connect students to memorable learning.
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.
