FlipTech2020 Revisited: Patient Assessment from Afar

Looking back at FlipTech 2020, applying it to 2021 and beyond.

The Flipped Learning Network hosted a fully-online conference in which presenters from around the world submitted short presentations to be viewed prior to the live discussion portion of the event.  The basic idea was to find a way to share “What works in 2020” with as many people as possible within the pandemic environment.   This series takes a look back at the presentations and some of the conversations from #FlipTech2020.

Case studies arguably form the foundation upon which solid clinical decision-making skills are built. Cases and live patients help students learn to obtain and complete History and Physicals (H&Ps). It is in this manner of questioning and probing that my students start to learn patient assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. I was able to learn (on the fly) and harness the capabilities of Microsoft Teams to not only continue our face-to-face case studies, but create new ones throughout the semester. My students and I were able to communicate 24/7 synchronously and asynchronously regardless of device or operating system. If you teach clinical medicine, please consider joining us for an in-depth discussion of how to use Teams to help your students continue their clinical learning remotely.

Does this sound like something that you might be interested in developing a presentation for?  Here (potentially) is your chance. The FLN is considering a spring 2021 version of FlipTech and a little further into this series we may be opening an opportunity for you to participate.  For now read, view, and enjoy the articles in this series with an eye to how you might participate later this summer.
