Learning in/from Libraries: The Power of Experience in CME/CE
Welcome back to the Write Medicine podcast! Before we get into today’s topic on the power of experience in learning, I wanted to share with you a message from Mallory Kane. Mallory is a fourth-year medical student at the University of Connecticut who is creating an anthology of essays based on testimonies from people whose lives have been impacted by cancer. Whether you are a patient or survivor, a family member or caretaker, she wants to hear from you. She is using this anthology to highlight the experience of living with this disease.
Mallory’s looking for 1–3-page essays (max 1500 words) answering the following prompt:
What lesson have you learned from your experience with cancer that you want others to know?
Adult learning is a complex process and we all want to think our CME/CE content measures up to the challenge. So today’s episode focuses on learning by doing and learning through experience.
But first, let’s talk about building libraries and the American philosopher John Dewey.
