TEACHxperts: Developing a Mastery Learning Curriculum

Join us on ​October 13, 2017 from 12 to 2 p.m. for the first TEACHxperts at Northwestern session of the 2017-2018 academic year. William C. McGaghie, David Salzman, Jeffrey H. Barsuk, and Walter Eppich, from  Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine will share their experience on applying master learning to develop a curriculum in the medical education.

During this session, the presenters will guide the participants through the stages of developing a curriculum based on mastery learning. Mastery learning is an educational methodology where the learner must show they have mastered the subject before they can continue.

Contrast this with some traditional educational models where a student may progress thanks to comparative standards (e.g., a bell-curve) without having demonstrated adequate mastery of the subject. For medical education, applying mastery learning ensures future healthcare providers can a high quality of patient care.

How can mastery learning be applied to students in your field?  During this workshop, the presenters will explain the theoretical construct, provide a specific example of medical procedure training using a mastery learning approach, and participants will work together to create a curriculum using the mastery learning model.
