  1.

  2. 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:

  3. 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:

  4.  The last item on the agenda is the Week-at-a-Glance document (see Week-At-A-Glance DOC file or Week-At-A-Glance PDF file).  Don Innes reported that the Curriculum Committee has decided that this will be mandatory when the class of SMD17 starts in August.   No time was left for discussion of this item.
