Session I ● 1:45 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.

Title:  Competency-Based Medical Education
Presenter:  Rajesh Mangrulkar MD, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
Location:  Salon A-C
Theme:  Pulse
Abstract: The University of Michigan Medical School is designing a transformative pilot program for medical student education called ENCORE, combining continuous, formative and summative assessment of higher order educational outcomes with flexible learning paths for achievement in nine defined competency domains. During this presentation, the ENCORE program will be described, along with the rationale behind its design, results of pilot work, and the anticipated obstacles that will need to be overcome for successful implementation.

Title:  Education Commons: More Breathing Room
Presenters:  Ellen Marks, Sandra Martin, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI; Brandon Sundberg, SHW Group, Detroit, MI, Todd Stevens, SHWGROUP, Detroit, MI
Location:  Athens
Theme:  Respiration
Abstract:  Key questions and critical needs shaped the Shiffman Library’s planning for a complete renovation of its 1970 building. In partnership with Wayne State University School of Medicine, the vision for an Education Commons has resulted in a user-cordial, flexible and environmentally sound library integrated with the school’s educational programs and services. Due to open in Spring 2009, current status and issues, and the ideas contributed by state of the art architectural perspectives will be shared.

Title:  Project Management
Presenter:  Jayant Trewn Ph.D, Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, MI
Location:  Niles 1-2
Theme:  Blood Pressure
Abstract:  This session will give you practical hands-on implementation tools on using project management techniques in developing a plan to implement Web 2.0 applications such as a Wiki in a health science library environment.  The presenters will provide examples to help you get started on your own project for your organization.

Title:  Using Patient-Oriented Evidence to Reduce Health Disparities
Presenter:  David Slawson MD, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA
Location:  Dennison 1-4
Theme:  Temperature
Abstract:  This talk will focus around this equation: value equals quality divided by cost.  There are three things in medicine that affect this equation; overuse, underuse, and misuse of medical services.  The answer to these issues may be simple—having doctors access the best information and holding them accountable to it.  The whole issue of “information management” is much more than simply keeping up to date.  It may be the only key to solving the health care crisis in America and elsewhere.

Session II ● 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Title:  Health Literacy

Title:  Presenting with a Passion
Presenter:  Corrine Stavish, Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, MI
Location:  Niles 1-2                                                                          
Theme:  Temperature
Abstract:  Edward Tufte of Yale, Sherry Turkle of MIT, and Clifford Nass of Stanford have all warned against using PowerPoint in the boardroom and classroom.  What then is left for those who want to be dynamic presenters?  Dare we abandon lackluster laptop presentations?  What should we do instead? We will explore alternatives to “same-old’ presentation formats and explore strategies to engage an audience and motivate audiences with memorable presentations.
