Didactic lectures may be the least effective approach to deep and lasting learning. During the 2017-2018 academic year, Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine undertook a continuous quality improvement project aimed at converting 10 percent to 15 percent of in-person didactic lectures to asynchronous video lessons. The content from the preceding week’s sessions was then applied in synthesis and application sessions (SASs) using active learning strategies. Lessons learned from the process of selecting content for conversion, recruiting faculty and assisting them with video production, and developing and implementing SASs will be discussed. Students will present their perspectives on the successes and failures of this quality improvement project.
