Teaching with Intent: Secrets from the Masters
Friday, March 17
The Teaching with Intent: Secrets from the Masters Intensive at ACC.17 has evolved into an extensive program that will help attendees improve their professional communications skills not just as educators but also as health care providers. Whether your “audience” is medical residents, students, patients or your peers, expanding and improving your communications skills will elevate you both professionally and personally.
The expert faculty for this focused intensive is comprised of cardiovascular care professionals who are known for their expertise as skilled educators and communicators including Rick Nishimura, Patrick T. O’Gara and Craig Alpert. They will integrate highly interactive, innovative or entertaining teaching or communications techniques into the course.
The focus is on improving instructional skills during Part 1. Learn what “Backwards Planning” is and how to prepare goals and objectives more effectively for Grand Rounds or similar situations. Join the team competition in the Mock MOC session or learn about the ADDIE Instructional Design Model, then “pair and share” on how to deploy it. The session will be highly interactive, so be prepared to participate.
Part II focuses on delivering effective presentations — learn the principles of a great “ACC Talk” during “How Does Rick Tick,” how to improve your presentation skills, use your slides more effectively and become a successful moderator. During the interviewer/interviewee portion, you’ll also find valuable interview techniques.
Part III uses the techniques of simulations followed by panel discussions to review key elements in a health care provider’s professional life: small group case conference presentations; patient encounters and patient-centered teaching and attendee/trainee feedback sessions. Improving your skills in each of these areas translates into making you a more effective clinician and health care professional.
After participating in all three segments of the Teaching with Intent Intensive, you will leave with a greater understanding of how to communicate better in your professional capacity whether you are teaching students, conducting rounds, interacting with patients and their family or making a presentation to colleagues at a scientific session. Attendees are encouraged to attend all three segments for a comprehensive study of the topic. Don’t miss this opportunity at ACC.17 to advance the level of your communications and teaching skills as a health care professional.
