Focus on Learning Tools

From the 2024 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (Recorded 2/22/2024)
Presented by Lauren Brooks, PhD, MLS(ASCP)CM, and Margot Alvey, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM

Featuring two 30-minute sessions:
Bringing Hemostasis to Life: Hands-on Modeling of Coagulation
Come learn about a hands-on model for introducing and reinforcing the concepts of hemostasis. Bring to your classroom a new way to engage students with primary hemostasis and the coagulation cascade, including modeling coagulation testing and evaluating results based on various patient pathologies.
Stand up and Step up: Motivating Students to Study through the Table-Top Quiz and Mini Exam
External motivators are often necessary to enhance students’ study habits. Attend this session to learn about two unique assessment tools—the table-top quiz and the mini exam—and how they can lead to improved study habits, student confidence, and exam performance in your didactic courses.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Design a hands-on model of hemostasis for their students. Assess students' gains in knowledge of and self-reported confidence on the material. Describe the impact visual and active learning provides as a complement to lecture based learning.
  • Discuss challenges students and instructors face with instilling consistent and effective study habits. Explain the format and purpose of the Table-Top Quiz and the Mini Exam. Value the positive impact of these evaluation tools on students and instructors.
