I have been so fortunate to be able to share the joy of learning. Science and Medicine are so intrinsically interesting and help me understand what I observe and experience. “Isn’t that Cool!” As I understand more clearly how ideas and experiences come together, I want to share it with my learner’s.
Over the years, I’ve studied the ways in which I learn as well as how my students learn. The similarities and differences are fascinating. Educationally, I strive to connect new information and experiences with previous ones. Where possible, I try to connect to the person’s own experience. Improvements in group and individualized instruction for me grows from studying my learners. I also like to study skill development similarly to understand acquisition and guide practice. What could be better than the privileged position I hold as a medical educator.
