Technology and learning are developing at a rapid pace, while surgical training remains antiquated. Residents and medical students are learning in new ways that do not rely on structured didactic lectures and long hours of studying from books. This webinar will teach surgeons how residents learn, explain how the environment affects learning, and discuss novel techniques to train residents in the digital age.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how we learn new things
  • Recognize factors that affect our ability to learn
  • Develop new teaching strategies which accommodate a variety of learning techniques
