Creating Clinical Case-based Activities/Lessons from a Template

The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is using case-based learning activities to attempt to improve student satisfaction and learning outcomes for nearly-graduated medical students.
Traditionally faculty distribute case scenarios in a handout-lecture-question/answer cycle. They have wanted and needed to transform the cases into more engaging learning activities for individuals and groups, incorporating decision-making, feedback, self-assessment, and reflection. But the faculty's challenging teaching/clinical course load limited time to accomplish this.
The task for an instructional designer: develop a simple-to-use template for turning existing cases into engaging activities. And the solution: use SoftChalk to build the template faculty can adapt to their needs.
During this session you will see the template they created plus samples of the case-based activities in three specialties. In addition they will discuss both student and faculty satisfaction with the process.
