Curriculum Sharing: Transforming 50-Minute Didactic Lectures for Active Learning

Tuesday, February 02 | 3:15PM–4:00PM
Session Type: Professional Development
Duke School of Medicine is committed to sharing its unique curriculum with Duke-NUS, its Singapore-based sister medical school. At Duke, content is often presented in 50-minute didactic lectures, which are captured for export to Singapore. Studies have shown that the optimal video length for student engagement is about six minutes. We produce indexed video playlists of the content recorded in the Duke lecture hall. This enables Duke-NUS students to easily access course material in smaller chunks, using a customized, interactive, voice-annotated presentation (VAP) player. This innovation supports TeamLEAD, the flipped classroom active-learning educational paradigm developed and used at Duke-NUS.

OUTCOMES: Learn techniques and best practices for indexing videos * Learn how to take advantage of using VAPs for active and blended teaching and learning in an educational setting
