Lifelong learning is valued in the health professions. We can help our students begin to develop the skills and attitudes that facilitate lifelong learning by providing opportunities for independent learning as part of their education. Yet, providing independent learning opportunities can be tricky in health professions programs that often have tightly packed curricula and specific learning objectives. This workshop will focus on how to develop independent learning activities (e.g., assigned studies in UGME) for health professions education.

Learning Objectives:

By participating in this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • define independent learning and describe the benefits of providing students with independent learning opportunities
  • identify key characteristics of effective independent learning activities
  • draft an outline of an independent learning activity.
