MEdIC Series | The Case of the Catastrophic Classroom – Expert Review and Curated Commentary

meded hackathon imageThe Case of the Catastrophic Classroom outlined a scenario where a junior faculty member is tasked with revamping didactics at her institution. We joined Jill as she walked through various phases of discovery, building empathy for her stakeholders. This case was subsequently discussed at the CORD Academic Assembly 2016 (#CORDaa16) where 4 teams competed to design novel solutions for this complicated problem.

This month the ALIEM Design team, led by Drs. Teresa Chan (@TChanMD), Catherine Patocka (@patockaem), Jeremy Voros (@vorosmd) co-hosted a design challenge with CORD’s Dr. Rob Cooney (@EMeducation) where a keen bunch of creative medical educators participated to identify the problems and pitch possible solutions that might work for Jill. Their discussion and solutions were based on the insights and suggestions from the ALiEM community. We are proud to present to you the Curated Community Commentary and our Design Hackathon team solutions. Thank-you to all our participants for contributing to the very rich discussions last week.

This ALiEM MEdIC series is part of a very special event! In a few days in Nashville, TN the ALiEM Design Fellows (Dr. Catherine Patocka & Dr. Jeremy Voros) and I will be joining forces with CORD’s Dr. Rob Cooney to organize a special Design Thinking Hackathon. This workshop will take place at CORD’s 2016 Academic Assembly, which is only a few days away.  We are very excited that our Design fellows team will be helping to introduce people to the world of Design Thinking!
