Teaching Moments For Interns to Students is the first tool to maximize the value of the teaching moment. Using a predictable format, Teaching Moments packages lessons designed for long-term storage. Provided in 5- to 25-minute lessons with content optimized for their length, Teaching Moments focuses on the commonly misunderstood medical topics of interns. Whether used by interns as a guideline to facilitate interaction with the student or by the student to prepare for upcoming boards and internship, the teaching methods learned here will make you a better teacher.
- Based upon research into long-term storage in humans, Teaching Moments provides a guideline whereby interns and medical students not only learn the frequently misunderstood lessons of medicine, but through direct application of teaching concepts, learn to be more effective teachers and learners.
- Modules optimize the lesson type to the time available. Short, data-heavy lessons make proper use of the 5-minute teaching moment, while concept-laden lessons increase the return on investment from 25-minute teaching moments.
- Using Teaching Moments as a guideline facilitates interaction between teacher and student while guaranteeing that the point of the lesson is maintained.
- Teaching Moments provides highly storable presentations of commonly problematic topics, replacing the tendency to teach the most well understood, thereby expanding the knowledge base of the intern and the student.
