More than Audience Response: Using Learning Technologies to Create More Interaction at Live Courses

Members: $25   Non-member: $55

For many groups, the format of the "Annual Conference" has remained largely unchanged while new learning technologies, formats, and personalized learning swirl around them. You may have an app to help navigate the program, and audience response to answer questions in sessions, and a learning system to complete evaluations and claim CE credits, but many learners see these as "add-ons" that are separate from the education in the live sessions themselves. Live meetings, even large ones, don't have to miss out on the proven effectiveness of online learning interventions - in fact, it's an ideal forum to combine the best of both worlds into a fully immersive and outcomes-focused learning experience. In this session, the Mayo Clinic and their partners at Knowledge to Practice will review how they've enhanced their Cardiovascular Board Review courses with an online portal integrated with the live sessions, allowing learners to assess and connect their knowledge before, during, and after the meeting. Using these tactics and course design principles, CE planners can enhance their "traditional" conferences to provide self-assessment opportunities, gather valuable evaluation and outcomes data, and help learners access all the available content, even for sessions they don't attend. 

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Review the challenges in facilitating meaningful, educational interaction in a large live conference
  2. Design a comprehensive plan for blended learning at a live conference, providing connections and collaborative space between and within sessions
  3. Enhance the use of existing meeting apps and online portals to meet current (and next-generation) learner needs

It’s Not Just About Looking for a Job: Using LinkedIn for Personal and Professional Development

Members: $25   Non-member: $55

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Communicate your profile information in a clear and concise manner
  2. Adapt your content and language for the audience you are trying to engage
  3. List ways to reach to association members via LinkedIn

Performance Improvement CME (PI CME)

Members: $25   Non-member: $55

Performance Improvement CME (PI CME) relies on active learning engagement that is focused on performance improvement, rather than a focus on the more traditional CME focus on knowledge improvement.  PI CME is often a CME/CPD program’s “low-hanging fruit” opportunity to partner with quality and safety professionals who guide continuous quality improvement initiatives throughout our organizations.  This presentation will provide participants with the information needed to meet PI CME Requirements, as well as helpful tips on how CE professionals are supporting QI efforts even beyond just providing the credits.  

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Describe the concept of Performance Improvement Continuing Medical Education and how it differs from traditional CME.
  2. Outline the necessary elements of a PI CME project that allows granting of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
  3. Construct PI CME as a performance improvement activity separate from, and as part of, MOC Part IV.
