Large Group Active Learning (LGAL)
The resources below are part of a four-part workshop series aimed at helping you become more efficient and organized in a standard way as you prepare to teach in a large group active learning session (LGAL). These sessions were developed by the Office of Medical Education (OME) and Faculty Development (FD) and propose a standard rubric for developing your LGAL’s with a special focus on the quantity, selection and preparation of pre-work for the students. Pre-work is explicitly linked to the development of active teaching methodologies to engage students in the sessions. Clinical cases with higher order questions, small group breakout activities, polling questions and the use of concept mapping are also demonstrated. We also explore how to use these active methodologies in the current Zoom environment.
LGAL Presentation: Selecting and using pre-work in your session
This video discusses the use of pre-work in the large group active setting. Objectives include describing the purpose of pre-work; incorporating pre-work into your sessions; and an active component in which you develop an activity for your session using the pre-work that was developed.
Teaching with Zoom
This video provides an overview of important Zoom features utilized in the remote teaching environment (e.g., sharing your screen, opening documents, chat, creating polls, annotating and more). It then discusses active learning strategies, and displays several active learning case examples that demonstrate the ways in which Zoom can facilitate dynamic sessions within the large group active learning setting.
