In early 2016 the EASL Governing Board developed a new format for its Schools of Hepatology and in September 2016 the first pilot of this new format was presented with success and overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants.
The new format is based on a “flipped classroom model” that is learner centric and problem oriented. Students receive the learning material beforehand as homework. Once in the classroom, they work in small teams under the guidance of experienced tutors with an emphasis on teamwork and cooperation.
Locations for the EASL Schools must be recognised European centres of excellence with all aspects of the competence in that domain covered by local experts.
EASL would like to provide its members with the ability to participate by opening a call for programme outline proposals and proposed topics. EASL plans in 2019 to present one Clinical and one Basic School.
If yes, we strongly encourage you to submit your idea and outline no later than June 2, 2017. If approved, the EASL Governing Board and staff will assist you with its development and presentation.
Please consider the below program components when drafting your submission.
Students take pre-quiz, short summary talks presented by faculty and summaries of quiz results.
Participants are divided into groups of 6 and each group is assigned a complex clinical case with 6 questions and a tutor.
Participants must address the 6 questions (one per each student) via PowerPoint slides, according to a strict format. Each will present as a teacher to the other groups.
Prize presented for the best didactic content.
Cases are presented and post quiz completed.
Prizes announced, fun quiz and state-of-the-art lecture presented by an international expert.
Participants are asked to evaluate the school format and the dynamic of teamwork. Tutors evaluate groups.
