If you have agreed to become a PBLD Facilitator, please consider completing the Section 3 accredited Training Module on Facilitating PBLDs! Our innovative problem-based learning discussions provide the participant the opportunity to engage in active learning – help yourself become the best facilitator you can be!
The Problem Based Learning Discussions (PBLD) have been a recent successful addition to our Annual Meeting. A PBLD is a learning-centered case or problem-based learning method that allows participants to be actively engaged in working through specific questions and challenges related to a clinical problem chosen for its relevance to practice and likelihood that it will provide significant learning.
Effectively facilitated PBLDs increase relevance and likelihood of application to practice. Participants are actively engaged and working on a relevant clinical issue, and this engagement enhances both attention to and retention of new material, providing deep learning experiences.
CAS has developed an online training module that is Section 3 SAP accredited and offers tips that will help everyone from the first-time facilitator to the experienced presenter, including descriptions of the phases and structure of PBLDs, managing the participants’ experiences, and how to prepare IT for your session.
The module is housed on Knowledge Direct, our learning management system. Up to 2 hours of CPD credit can be claimed when this program is fully completed.
As a faculty member, you will be contacted by the CAS Annual Meeting Secretariat with details about your participation and access to the training materials.
