Recent literature on educational theory has lead to an evolution in the thinking about how people learn.
By and large, the way medical educators teach has not kept up with these advances. Understanding learning theories will provide medical student educators with ability to discern when and why different instructional approaches might be used to maximize student learning. In addition, in an increasingly inter-professional environment and with an evolving curriculum it is vital that the University of Washington School of Medicine Faculty share a common understanding and language for educational theory and its best practices.
