Learning through Discussion: Three Steps to Effective Facilitation
Columbia’s Center for Teaching & Learning is offering a workshop for faculty to enhance small group learning through discussion. The workshop for faculty will be held Friday March 23, 2018 from 12:00-1:30pm on CUMC’s campus. This is an excellent opportunity to
We encourage early registration for this event. If there is enough interest, CTL will plan an additional workshop to accommodate the demand.
Sample Lesson Plans
Columbia Commons IPE is providing detailed samples of how an interprofessional workshop may unfold. Please feel free to use these lesson plan in its complete form or adapt and modify as you see fit. Faculty may choose to look at how we structure the workshop and use this to spark ideas for their own workshop content. Faculty may also choose to use our lesson plans instead of creating their own content. Faculty are not required to follow our lesson plans and are free to create their own structure as long as they keep the workshop interactive.

Time is built into the schedule to transition from one building to another between sessions. It is important, however, that you strictly adhere to your scheduled time so that participants will not be late to subsequent activities.
We suggest that the first 15 minutes be dedicated to introductions and learning “who is in the room?” Depending on the size of the group, this may involve individual introductions, an icebreaker activity, or large group questions like, “Which of you are from the Dental program? Nutrition? Etc.” IPE Faculty Leaders should also introduce themselves. Each co-IPE Faculty Leader would then present 10-15 minutes of material. The focus may be knowledge-based (focusing on evidence) or skill-based (focusing on advocacy). We are encouraging informal, low-tech methods (no PowerPoint), however, the format is up to you. Please note that we will not have adequate staffing to support varied AV needs. The final 45 minutes of the session should give participants an opportunity to interact with each other and communicate with students from other professions in a discussion or activity connected to the session topic. At the end, IPE Faculty Leaders should pull everyone together for final “take-homes.”
- It is important that this interprofessional day remains a non-partisan event. The primary focus is to encourage collaborative approaches to advocacy and addressing the nation’s biggest health issues.
- Students will be coming from nine different professional programs and will be at different stages of their education. Presenters should not assume any base-line knowledge of the topics being discussed.
- Whenever possible, try to draw connections between your topic area and the varied professional perspectives that will be represented in the room. This is also a rich opportunity for students to learn about other professions.
- Offer your own examples of how you or your profession is raising awareness on the issue, and highlight ways students can get involved.
The room assignments will be finalized in mid March. Faculty leaders will receive an email with room locations.
