Free eLearning modules can help residents become better instructors

Residents are increasingly becoming involved in medical student education, but few have had formal teaching training or experience. The American College of Radiology (ACR) has recently releases a series of online lectures that aim to improve resident teaching skills. Module topics include “How to Enhance Lecturing: Eight Questions,” “Case-based Teaching for Medical Students,” “Problem Based Learning,” and “Assessing Medical Student Performance.” There are currently 13 online modules available (all for free). The lectures were designed to fulfill LCME (ED-24) standard requirements. Though the modules were created by the ACR, most of the lectures are broad enough to be useful to residents in all fields of medicine. You can find the complete lecture series here:
