Monday, August 19, 2019, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Hyatt Greenway C Room
Theme: Optimizing the Interprofessional Clinical Learning Environment

Workshop Description and Learning Objectives:
1) Introductions and review of CLE measurement and optimization at Nebraska Medicine
2) Using “Think-Pair-Share” to prompt individual reflection and feedback from near-peers regarding CLE measurement. Develop a shared mental model about what it means to measure the CLE through frame of reference training. Individual facilitators assigned to individual small groups. Participants write down an immediate next step on action plan worksheet. (Objective #1 and #3)
3) Provide example CLE data to participants who then use “Think-Pair-Share” to prompt individual reflection followed by feedback from near-peers regarding unique contexts and structures of different institutions. The goal is to identify how to prepare for home institution focus groups, a critical step when optimizing the local CLE. Participants write down an immediate next step on action plan worksheet. (Objective #2 and #3)
4) Large group discussion with Q&A based upon participant needs. Participants finalize an action plan and next steps prior to conclusion. (Objective #3)

Workshop facilitators will provide the following materials:
• Action plan worksheet
• Example CLE data used to prompt focus groups
• Example focus group facilitation guides

Active learning strategies:
• Think-Pair-Share
• Frame of reference training
• Commitment to action with identification of next steps
