Description: Trends in health sciences education are blending a variety of instructional designs, such as Problem Based Learning (PBL), team-based learning, and community based learning and research services (COBERS). Medical librarians should be well versed in these instructional methods in order to best support the learning and teaching. The curriculum develops in students the learning skills essential for independent study and continued learning in their life as physicians. Speakers will provide an overview of instructional trends and how librarians can play a role in learning and teaching, including providing resources and services for different learning methods.

Papers may focus on:

  • Embracing Learner cantered approaches to medical education
  • Changes in the medical curriculum in different African countries, and challenges faced by both learners and teachers
  • Application of Competence based curriculum in medical universities
