Tips for Delivering Effective and Efficient Lessons

As educators in healthcare education, our goal is to help our students learn the essential skills and competencies to help them succeed in the dynamic field of healthcare. The key to achieving this lies in delivering effective and efficient lessons. 

Having a platform like Leo, our enterprise software platform, can help you run your healthcare education program more efficiently. From easy integration with EdTech tools to quick evaluations and real-time updates, Leo makes it easy to deliver effective and efficient lessons. Here are some ways in which you can achieve effective and efficient lesson delivery:

  • Utilize EdTech: Integrating educational technology (EdTech) solutions into your classroom can greatly enhance lesson delivery. Multimedia resources, such as videos, simulations, and virtual reality experiences can bring complex concepts to life and make learning more accessible and impactful. With Leo, you can easily integrate LTI-based systems and other EdTech tools into your existing curriculum, giving your students access to critical learning resources.
  • Support Competency-based Education: In healthcare education, incorporating active learning strategies such as case studies, problem-solving exercises, role-playing, and simulations can be highly effective. This is the central idea behind competency-based education (CBE) which lets students learn at their own speed and focuses on mastering specific skills or abilities, no matter where they're learning. This approach is customized to fit different learning levels and can lead to better results for students. Leo gives you a bird's-eye view of your whole program as well as the option to zero in on single course sessions, so you can see exactly what areas may benefit from CBE modalities.
  • Assess Learning Outcomes: Digital assessments, instant feedback, and analytics provided by Leo allow you to quickly identify areas of strength and weakness. This empowers you to make immediate adjustments, address misconceptions, and reinforce key concepts for better student understanding. From evaluations to the Academic Portrait, Leo offers several ways in which you can assess the effectiveness of your lesson delivery in real-time. 
  • Foster Interprofessional Collaboration: Healthcare education often involves multiple disciplines working together in a team-based environment. Incorporating interprofessional collaboration into lesson delivery can better prepare students for the realities of healthcare practice. Engage students in interprofessional activities, group projects, and case discussions to develop effective communication skills, teamwork, and an understanding of each profession's role. Leo’s discussion boards make it easy for students to collaborate on projects, share ideas, and learn from one another.
