About the HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership
Established in June 2011, the HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership seeks to:
• Enhance teaching and learning on UofL's Health Sciences Campus by providing meaningful and relevant professional development opportunityes for faculty;
• Share unit resources to promote campus-wide conversations about best practices in teaching and learning in the health sciences; and
• Address accreditation calls for continuous quality improvement to the curriculum by offering participants concrete teaching strategies and 'take-aways' for immediate implementation and relevant resources to foster further exploration and learning.

The partnership steering committee is comprised of unit representatives from Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, the School of Public Health and Information Sciences and the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning. With support from the deans of each school, the steering committee works together to deliver two significant professional development programs for HSC faculty annually.
to colleagues who are interested in learning more?

The HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership is sponsoring an opportunity for faculty to share the unique ways that technology can be used in teaching in the Health Sciences. This new summer program serves as a direct follow up to last year’s “What’s Holding You Back? A Conversation about Integrating Instructional Technology into Heath Sciences Courses” faculty panel conversation.

This year's lunch program will include informal presentations in a dynamic 'speed dating' setting. Attendees will have the opportunity to select from eight different “show and tell” demonstrations and, at a designated time interval, will move to another demonstration. This format is designed to encourage a high level of interaction between presenters and attendees.


Using Blackboard Surveys and Wikis for Reflective Assignments
Presenter: P. Gay Baughman, D.M.D., Clinical Assistant Professor, General Dentistry and Oral Medicine

Students are digital natives and they appreciate when faculty make the effort to use available technology. Surveys and reflective assignments can be used to foster students’ metacognitive skill development and to check for conceptual understanding. Using a course wiki can build collaboration in a large classroom and help students work well together. As class sizes increase, wikis offer the possibility of making large classes feel more intimate. Considered together, these tools also help faculty gain important insights into their students’ thinking and learning.


  • To define how to use Blackboard and wiki surveys for a mid-course formative assessment of classes, exploring how these surveys offer a chance to see what is working and what is not, potentially improving course evaluations
  • To demonstrate how post-assignment reflections provide the opportunity for faculty to better recognize, and gain insight on, better teaching practices
  • To describe how wikis can help students get to know each other, as well as help the instructor gain valuable insight into their students’ thinking

METI LearningSpace: Videorecording Software
Presenter: Carrie Bohnert, M.P.A., Director, Standardized Patient Program

Through the Standardized Patient Program, students interact with simulated patients to enhance their clinical skills. METI LearningSpace helps students improve performance by obtaining faculty feedback on their history taking, physical exam, and clinical communication skills. Students frequently report that the most beneficial aspect of the program is the feedback they receive. This software helps faculty provide additional narrative feedback and solves scheduling dilemmas by making student learning encounters available to faculty members at any time. This methodology can be adapted to any discipline that requires learners to develop skills in interpersonal communication or interviewing.


  • To identify the benefits of observing learners’ interactions by utilizing videorecording software
  • To describe how providing narrative and/or objective feedback to learners on their clinical or communication skills can help to increase learning
  • To describe how learners watching themselves interacting with patients/clients and receiving “live” feedback from faculty can be beneficial to student professional development

SoftChalk: PowerPoint on Steroids
Presenters: Carol K. Jones, M.Ed., Program Coordinator Senior, Interdisciplinary Program for Palliative Care and Chronic Illness, Division of Internal Medicine; Frank Woggon, Ph.D., Supervisor, UofL Hospital Chaplaincy Service; Tara Schapmire, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Interdisciplinary Program for Palliative Care and Chronic Illness, Division of Internal Medicine; Barbara Head, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Interdisciplinary Program for Palliative Care and Chronic Illness, Division of Internal Medicine

iCOPE (Interdisciplinary Curriculum for Oncology Palliative Care Education) is using SoftChalk as a delivery means for online didactic modules. These case-based modules instruct chaplaincy, medical, nursing, and social work students on the basics of palliative care. The modules have been developed by several members of iCOPE's interdisciplinary faculty and use video, web links, and self-evaluation testing. SoftChalk's applications provide an interactive format and allow students to self-test themselves on content. Students can access the modules on Blackboard at their convenience. This curriculum needs to be portable and SoftChalk enables these didactic modules to be used by other programs.


  • To demonstrate a range of SoftChalk lessons, whether easy or complex
  • To outline how the tutorials provided by SoftChalk are easy to follow and provide helpful techniques for putting together a professional looking lesson for medical students

Social Media for Developing and Implementing Advocacy Campaign
Presenter: A. Scott LaJoie, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Health Promotion and Behavioral Sciences

Social media is the communication mode of the future, and healthcare professionals must find new ways of meeting patients where they are. Doctors can provide encouragement and support to patients, and patients can provide updates on their progress. Our students embrace new technology and enjoy the learning that uses technology. Social media allows faculty to share information and timely feedback with students to help them enhance their critical thinking skills and perspectives.


  • To explain how social media is becoming the standard mode of communication for the future and to demonstrate how healthcare professionals can relate to patients using technological applications
  • To discuss how students are generally prone to embrace new technology and enjoy learning methods that utilize social media
  • To describe how education can be conducted efficiently via social media

Anki Adaptive Flashcards
Presenter: Keith B. Lyle, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Psychological and Brain Sciences

A big part of learning is remembering, and our students are often faced with large amounts of material that they need to remember. Psychological research shows that students are poor at designing their own study plans. Adaptive flashcards do some of the planning for students, improving on what they would come up with on their own. The flashcards help students commit information to memory by instantiating two well-established psychological effects: the retrieval-practice effect and the spacing effect. Using the flashcards can also increase the amount that students remember and the efficiency with which they commit information to memory. In other words, this user-friendly, self-paced technology allows students to remember more and do it faster.


  • To demonstrate how Anki helps to implement thought retrieval practices and how this can be used to improve memory
  • To describe how Anki can be used in almost any type of classroom

Human Patient Simulation Software
Presenter: Kevin Martin, Director of Operations, Paris Simulation Center

The Paris Simulation Center strives to develop a beneficial symbiotic relationship that presents educational material in a different manner to improve understanding without adding instructional complexity or increased instructional time. “MUSE 2.0” is a software package used to create patient physiology for simulation cases taught in the Simulation Center. This software installs on a desktop or laptop computer of select faculty who work with the Paris Simulation Center. Faculty can create and update patient training cases which help students gain a better understanding of basic human physiology. This allows faculty to experiment with methods to present patient cases to students for in-class discussion, or for eventual simulated patient cases that can be performed using the Simulation Center’s patient mannequins.


To describe the ease of human patient simulation software for teaching in medical classes

  • To develop an increased understanding of medical case presentation as a means of encouraging student participation and engagement
  • To provide faculty with a more thorough understanding of the simulation center’s role in assisting faculty with curriculum development and teaching improvement

Camtasia Videos
Presenter: Cynthia J. Miller, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Physiology and Biophysics

Camtasia 7.0is an inexpensive, screen-recording software program which can be used to create flash videos. These videos can be used by professors to review basic course content, orient the students to online materials, expose students to 'real-life' situations outside of the classroom, or for a variety of other applications. Dr. Miller is currently using Camtasia videos in the School of Dentistry to allow students to review basic physiology concepts prior to lecture. In an IRB-approved study, the use of Camtasia videos (as part of online review modules) resulted in statistically significant gains in performance in three different sections of the course.


  • To demonstrate how Camtasia videos can be used to inexpensively create online teaching materials
  • To inform about the process for creating Camtasia videos
  • To describe how online materials, such as the Camtasia videos, can improve professional student performance

Professionally Dramatized Case Study
Presenters: Karen Hughes Miller, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Office of Graduate Medical Education; Pradip Patel, M.D., Professor, Pediatrics; V. Faye Jones, M.D., Ph.D., Professor, Pediatrics; Michael Rowland, Ph.D., Associate Dean for Diversity Initiatives and Community Engagement, Assistant Professor, Department of Leadership, Foundations & Human Resource Education

When academicians works with artists, we all get an interdisciplinary 'boost' that helps us see instructional elements in a new ways. In this module on increasing cultural competence for third year medical students in their pediatric clerkship, we used a professionally recorded performance of trained actors from our Standardized Patient (SP) program over PowerPoint slides to create a dramatic, more deeply engaging event. The case, based on a true story, is delivered online to students and followed by a face-to-face discussion session. Developing the production allowed media professionals to work with academicians to develop new learning material that had the necessary emotional impact to engage learners. The product was underwritten by a grant from the AAMC Southern Group on Education Affairs (SGEA), Medical Education Scholarship Research and Education (MESRE).


  • To inform about UofL resources for graphics, media production, and online technology, and, to encourage participants to use these resources
  • To demonstrate how students may use media to 'speed up' the study process, including how using a dramatized sound track allows learners to be in a better position to control the pace of instruction.
  • To relate to participants the idea of using blended learning to support the idea of the 'flipped classroom.
