This workshop mirrors an effective small-group learning environment by illustrating a variety of techniques (e.g., buzz groups, snowballing, pair-share, cross-over groups and circle of voices). Each technique is discussed and immediately applied using common scenarios. Videos, case vignettes, and self- and group-assessments are employed to provide practical strategies for managing various types of small groups, from the first to final meeting. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to establish and maintain a positive learning climate, move a group forward, address problematic behaviors, develop strategies applicable to stages of group development, and provide formative evaluation and feedback of group performance.

Implicit bias refers to the attitudes and stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases greatly influence our daily interactions both as individuals and institutions, leading to significant impact on patient care, medical education, and faculty recruitment, retention and promotion. Participants will engage in small group exercises to discuss specific, contextualized examples of implicit bias and identify possible mitigation strategies. Special attention will be paid to addressing bias on both the individual and institutional levels. Facilitators and participants will share experiences about implicit bias and review best practices from the literature. The workshop will close with a review of teaching modalities and take-home dissemination strategies.

All interested parties from Cornell Tech and Weill Cornell Medicine are invited. We seek to collaborate around health tech projects, integrate technology into healthcare, and serve patients, clinicians and communities through devices, social media, machine learning and more.
As part of our quarterly meet-and-greet series that includes short demonstration projects from volunteers about health tech efforts, all medical and research faculty are welcome to participate. Medical students, residents, fellows and research students may propose projects with a faculty sponsor.
