Educational Media and Technologies Section: Structural Adjustments: Changes in Education

Using Team-Based Learning to Engage Medical Students in Evidence-Based Practice, Epidemiology, and Biostatistics

5:05 PM – 5:20 PM     Room: Regency A, Gold Level, West Tower

Stephanie J. Schulte, Assistant Professor/Education and Reference Services Coordinator, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH

Courtney D. Lynch, Assistant Professor, Epidemiology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Pediatrics, Ohio State University, Columbus , Ohio

Objectives: To introduce librarians to the concept and benefits of team-based learning (TBL) to teach essentials of evidence-based practice, epidemiology, and biostatistics. The session will include fundamentals and logistics of conducting TBL as well as information about personal experience applying the method to evidence-based practice education.
Methods: A complete redesign of the college of medicine medical school curriculum allowed the thoughtful inclusion of evidence-based practice concepts, including articulating questions, searching the literature, and critically appraising studies. The redesign also included integrating several TBL sessions, a flipped teaching method requiring accountability for pre-class preparation and more focus on application of knowledge during class. As a result of this redesign, several online modules produced with Articulate software were presented within the curriculum management system utilized by the college of medicine. After one year of trying more traditional approaches to assessment of evidence-based practice essentials and decreasing time for live lectures on epidemiology and biostatistics, one librarian and one epidemiology faculty member teamed up to design and co-teach a TBL session for first year medical students.
Results: This guided learning activity provides an interactive flipped learning experience for even large classes. Teaching about 100 students each day for 3 hours, the instructors successfully held students accountable for the online content, while also utilizing a case-based approach to dive into deeper discussions about questions, resources, searching, and study design. A full technology team was engaged behind the scenes to prepare test materials, presentations with clickers integrated within, and record-keeping. Lessons learned will be shared.
Conclusions: TBL requires a thoughtful approach and can be time consuming during the preparation phase. However, the interactive format provides a conduit for rich discussions that may be lacking during online educational modules.

This presentation explores roles and opportunities for health sciences librarians to strategically engage in data initiatives at their institutions or organizations. Promising areas for data engagement relevant to data-intensive research environments will be highlighted.

Medical Library Education Section: New Voices

Building the Bioinformationist Pipeline

5:32 PM – 5:51 PM      Room: Columbus CD, Gold Level, East Tower

Kristi L. Holmes, Director, Galter Health Sciences Library, Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (NUCATS), Chicago, Illinois

Karen E. Gutzman, Associate Fellow, Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO

Description: Now more than ever, libraries are positioned to offer a wide variety of support services to basic science and clinical researchers at academic medical centers. This presentation will discuss skills and competencies for librarians who wish to offer this type of support and will provide several options available to librarians to obtain the training necessary for this type of role, including workshops, training courses, academic coursework, online learning modules, and more. Several options for possible library-based service models and how they align with current job prospects will also be discussed. Finally, we will address the requirements of rolling bioinformatics support services out at the local level, including specific ideas for librarians to better understand the research environment, client needs, and institutional priorities. The session will wrap up with a fun role-play that touches on some of the topics covered in the session.
