How to develop integrative learning skills through mastery learning and deliberate practice

Dr. Pelley will illustrate how personality type learning theory and brain based strategies can lead to increased achievement in medical school. This lecture and workshop will illustrate the application of Deliberate Practice, a cutting edge approach to expert skill training, in the development of expert problem solving skills.

The theory of functional specialization of the brain and its relevance to personality type will demonstrate how to develop integrative learning skills that that improve test scores and clinical reasoning skills. This activity will be a structured, interactive discussion that will encourage informal dialog between faculty and students.
