Vermont to Use New Medical Teaching ModelSeptember 28, 2016 |
by Jarrett Carter
Inside Higher Ed reports on plans at the University of Vermont College of Medicine to revamp its academic approach, replacing traditional classroom lectures with video instruction and application-based learning with in-person “active learning” settings.
The model follows a Stanford University-piloted program which suggested that medical training could be best delivered through a flipped classroom system, which has been replicated at other medical schools throughout the country. But some observers are concerned that dramatic shifts in the style could potentially jeopardize accreditation standards and metrics.
