AUPN's Leadership Minute is a brief, highly focused summary of practical advice for Chairs, Program Directors and other leaders in academic neurology, available as both mini-podcasts and in short form videos.

The goal of this program is to provide relevant and useful information in a modicum of time, designed to fit seamlessly into our very busy schedules.

Teaching Millennial Medical Students

What should medical educators know?

  • Crave active engagement in learning.
  • At ease with multimedia learning.
  • Value choice and flexibility in learning.
  • Prefer structured environments for learning.
  • More open to feedback but prefer/expect continuous feedback.
  • Accepting diversity and being interested in fairness.
  • A larger gap between the expectation of achievement and the effort needed to achieve it.

How to effectively teach millennials?

  • Technology should enhance learning and not replace it.
  • Flipped classroom with pre-work before sessions.
  • Recorded video or audio lectures (“podcast” style content).
  • Simulation-based learning, game-based learning, etc.
  • Add active content to your otherwise traditional lecture session.
  • Set specific goals and provide an itemized list of tasks to be completed.
  • Tell them who you are as a teacher.
