Preparing for and Responding to the Millennial Student

Description
As medical educators, we recognize significant differences in the current Millennial generation of students and graduates compared to the generation X. Learning about who Millennial students are, and how this generation may differ from the previous generation of medical students, may have educational implications. Dr. Elam will discuss how medical educators could adapt their instructional methods using new frameworks that characterize the medical teacher-student relationship and the impact of two different educational paradigms: instructional (teacher-centered) versus learning (learner-centered).

Objectives

  • Learn new frameworks that characterize the medical teacher-student relationship
  • Compare and contrast traditional instructional paradigms with learning paradigms
