The project focuses on techniques to improve the small group sessions in the 2nd year Ophthalmology Module. We video taped three faculty members while conducting small group sessions in this year's module and had those faculty view their own videos then reflect on the curriculum and on their own teaching. Major challenges discovered included lack of prep time, student engagement, and quantity of material to be covered. In conclusion, we plan to introduce tools to help seminar leaders including names tags, a student engagement tips document, Quizzler as the unique format for presentation in class, as well as some changes to curriculum and faculty training and composition.
