Finding the Controversy to Gain Global Awareness

Abstract:

Objective: To use informal primary literature analysis as a stepping stone for active classroom discussion of controversial issues in the management of infections with global, emerging, and/or public health importance.
Methods: Throughout the semester, ten groups of students will analyze, and informally present a recent piece of primary literature. Students are assessed on their group’s ability to succinctly evaluate each of the papers’ sections, focusing on strengths, limitations, and the related global controversies in either the sections and/or the paper overall. Groups are encouraged to use non-traditional means of content delivery to ensure that every student in the audience participates. Although students must prepare for the controversy discussions by reading the pre-selected papers, two of ten student groups are also assigned as discussants to further facilitate discussion. Students will be given two rubrics, one to help guide the instructor’s assessment of audience participation, and another to assist the presenting groups with the mechanisms of presenting their literature analysis.
Results: Students will complete surveys of this innovative teaching method assessing their knowledge and experience with 1.) Analyzing and summarizing primary literature, 2.) Presenting and leading classroom discussions, 3.) Connecting literature results to broader issues and action items.
Implications: This transferable technique will permit students to take ownership in the analysis and the creative discussion of primary literature. While this technique will be implemented in an advanced infectious diseases elective, it can be used in any class to encourage organic links between literature and issues in the public sphere.
