For those interested in learning more about the application of flipped instruction and/or blended learning techniques, we encourage you to take a look at VetMedAcademy's learning module entitled "Blended Learning and Critical Thinking." However, you might be interested in following the extensive efforts of the Flipped Learning Global Initiative (FLGI) led by Jon Bergmann.
I’ve been impressed by the timeliness of some of the blog posts from LearnDash, and this one by Laura Lynch certainly applies to video content VetMedAcademy tries to develop and highlight.
All of this gets to the attention span of the learner, and the image shown associated with this “Evidence-Based Learning” blog post was actually taken at the back of a vet school class (and I even think it was right after lunch!). Notice that the screens are not all showing the same thing!
A recent post from the LearnDash blog reminded me that one of the biggest challenges content-rich veterinary curricula have is RETENTION. Putting aside that the LearnDash post focuses on online education, the learning brain functions in similar ways for all types of educational formats.
