Making the case for active learning

By Dawn Hackman, M.S., AHIP, Research &Education Librarian University of North Dakota Library of the Health Sciences, Grand Forks, ND On January 8, 2016 the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) hosted a workshop called “The Librarian and Active Learning Models,” which is available via the Medical Library Association’s Educational Clearinghouse. I worked with the SMHS’s Associate Dean for Teaching &Learning to identify a workshop on active learning that would be relevant to both librarians and faculty. We noticed that this workshop focused on three active learning methodologies that are common to medical education and might be effective at UND. (Incidentally, this workshop is being offered as CE at MLA’16 in Toronto…and I highly recommend it!) The co-instructors for the workshop are based out of the East Coast and so I knew the travel expenses would be considerable. To offset the cost to my library, I applied for (and received) a professional development grant through the GMR. This workshop wouldn’t have been possible without it. My target audience changed between my application and the actual event. Originally I planned on inviting only medical librarians and a handful of SMHS faculty to attend. I targeted medical librarians, because the methodologies were presented in the context of medical education in the class description. However, I soon realized that all UND librarians should be ...

Conclusion: RAD was very rare in practice and would be disguised as other psychiatric disorders. Children with RAD might have more medical comorbidities than typically developed children. PMID: 29674600 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Meeting the benchmarks for social communication skills is a core challenge for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). In typical development, young people often learn these skills by observing others in interactions with adults and peers, or through their own interactions. For children on the spectrum, learning appropriate social skills usually requires direct intervention. As a speech-language pathologist focused on working with children with ASD, I’ve used several different methods to help these young people learn how to interact with their peers and family, many of which are described on ASHA’s P...

Conclusions School-age children referred for disciplinary action may have undiagnosed deficits in auditory processing and/or language. Efforts to screen, diagnose, and remediate these deficits could lead to improvements in communication, learning, and language skills in this population.

Conclusion: Across studies of different linguistically diverse groups, research teams are seeking answers to similar questions about child language screening and diagnostic practices, using similar analytical approaches to answer their questions, and finding promising results with tools focused on morphosyntax. More studies that are modeled after or designed to extend those in this forum are needed to improve the accuracy at which developmental language disorder is identified.

Conclusion This study provides evidence for the feasibility of the Supporting Knowledge in Language and Literacy narrative instruction program for improving self-generated narratives by children with language disorders. Future research is needed to determine how gains in oral narration transfer to written narrative skills.
