Society for Academic Emergency Medicine has entered into a partnership with MedEdPORTAL at the American Association of Medical Colleges. This partnership will allow SAEM members to feature their publications, provide author metrics including downloads that can assist with future promotion and tenure.
The free online, peer-review publication service features approximately 2,000 educational resources that span the continuum of healthcare education and now there will be a featured page for SAEM and emergency medicine publications: www.mededportal.org/saem.
MedEdPORTAL’s rigorous peer review process ensures the quality of each publication before publishing to the scholarly community. SAEM and MedEdPORTAL invites educators to submit teaching materials that are relevant to emergency medicine and reviewers who are willing to provide impartial assessment of submissions. For complete details on site submissions go to; www.mededportal.org/submitresources.

In this 30-minute talk, we will briefly discuss the characteristics of the Millennial Generation and explore in depth how these characteristics relate to their ability, or inability, to learn productively in a traditional lecture-style format. This discussion will encompass both a review of the current literature and survey results from the current emergency medicine residents at Hennepin County Medical Center regarding techniques they find effective and engaging during “the lecture” or other large group educational sessions. The goal of this talk is to expand or refine the armamentarium of tools to use when designing your large-group educational sessions, to maximize the learning and retention of information for your students.
