Surveys have shown that ACOG members like the innovative flipped classroom sessions, so ACOG offered 13 of them at this year’s meeting.
While it’s too late to register for any of this year’s sessions, make sure to consider them when registering for the 2018 Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas.
Attendees registered for these special courses before this year’s meeting. Those who registered for these free classes received videos and interactive modules prior to the meeting. Attendees reviewed the case-based materials before their sessions, then use the pre-session materials as a starting point during the session.
“Flipped classrooms have caught on in medical schools,” said ACOG Vice President for Education Sandra Carson, MD, FACOG, before the meeting. “So many of the younger meeting attendees have experienced this learning format.”
Dr. Carson said that the flipped classroom format has been shown to increase learning and retention by about 40 percent.
