In this video, John Epling, Jr, MD, MSEd, Professor and Chair of the Dept. of Family Medicine, discusses “Why Do WE Care About Objectives So Much?” Dr. Epling emphasizes the important links between good learning objectives and how we teach, and how we assess our learners. He describes how to write objectives, and provides a framework for organizing any instructional session. At times light-hearted (see what he does with ping pong balls), his talk serves as an example of his key points, and ends with specific action plans that will help YOU! ( 23 min.) This seminar was presented on February 23, 2016.
