Designing Memorable Workshops: A Workshop for Presenters and Teachers of Addiction Medicine (1 CME)
People remember about 20% of what they hear, 30% of what they see and 50% of what they see and hear. (Labonte, 1972) Most importantly, people remember how you made them feel. Therefore, when we teach we need to make it memorable by making the learning transformational. We need to create learning environments where in addition to cognitive learning, we promote affective and psychomotor learning ( Bloom's taxonomy, 1964). Workshops are brief small group learning activities which allow learners the opportunity to participate in problem solving to facilitate knowledge acquisition, attitudinal change or skill development. When properly designed based on adult and experiential learning principles it can be a time and cost efficient method of instruction. Moreover, it makes learning fun! This facilitated small group session will use a combination of brief didactic teaching and a variety of interactive and participatory methods. We will introduce learners to the steps of workshop design and evaluation. In addition we will have small groups co-create the development of an interactive exercise based on the competencies for Addiction Medicine. Techniques to enhance interaction and audience participation such as "pair and share" will be practiced. The workshop will conclude with a large group debrief and commitment by participants to submit a workshop for consideration at the next ASAM annual conference.
