Nominations for co-chairs of the System Leader Committee were solicited. All system leaders are eligible including those for the Foundations of Medicine, Cells, Tissue & Mechanisms of Disease, CPD and SIM systems. Ideally, one of the co-chairs would be a clinician and the other a basic scientist. Submit nominations to Bart Nathan or Selina Noramly by Monday 6/17.
Elizabeth Bradley introduced the topic of how active learning is tracked through Oasis as she was asked to chart the percentage of active learning as compared to total hours of instruction for each system for the LCME review. She included hours of assessment, review and PRL in the total hours of instruction, but after discussing with the group she will re-work the data without assessment and (possibly) review sessions. Other items discussed and requiring clarification included:
Are only the PRLs in Oasis on Sunday captured for the pay-for-teaching model? Many PRLs have been entered Mon-Fri so this needs to be clarified.
· What is the distinction between PRL and SDL? Which activities should be included in the “Learning Online Activity” activity type? Elizabeth will ask John Jackson about creating another activity type in Oasis for tracking these activities. Dr. Innes stated using the “SDL” terminology is confusing as it can stand for “self-directed learning”, an active learning type where the students create their own learning objectives, or it can mean “student-directed learning”, an activity with assigned learning objectives that students complete on their own. To prevent confusion, a different term should be considered for the latter.
Christopher Read and Kate O’Varanese from Hearing Impaired Services were introduced to the group. They will be coordinating services for the hearing impaired student who is in the class of SMD17 starting in August. This is the first hearing impaired student to attend UVA Medical School so there are no systems in place at the present time. Discussion points included:
· Hearing impaired services will include:
o Captioning of all video instructional materials (PRLs, podcasts, etc.) As these materials will be sent to an outside vendor, they must be submitted at least a week in advance (the sooner the better).
o They will provide at least one interpreter for the morning sessions and another for the afternoon CPD session – Melanie McCollum suggested the candidates be screened to make sure they are comfortable with being in the Anatomy Lab.
· Everything that is currently NOT recorded (TBL, Patient Presentation, Lab and Small Groups) will continue to not be podcast.
· A mechanism for getting instructional material to Kate and Christopher was discussed. Some options include adding them to the system Collab sites or creating a new Collab or DropBox site and posting materials there.
· Chris & Kate will communicate early and often with faculty, staff, and the student to determine what is and is not working.
