One of the drivers of the original Learning Actions research was a concern that in learning, as in so many facets of life, our subconscious mind undermines rational thinking, decision making, and behavior; yet the ‘adult learner’ has been (universally) seen as fully competent, autonomous, and self-directed. The premise itself
In the four years since the launch of the ArcheMedX platform and the introduction of the Learning Actions Model we have continually demonstrated how more effective education (with greater data utilization) can lead to significantly improved outcomes over traditional forms of online medical education.
In addition to the extensive bench marking
For nearly 5 years ArcheMedX has been working to "nudge" learners to learn more effectively. The simple idea is that learners rely on a largely unevolved set of learning actions, or behaviors, and that by architecting learning experiences that optimize these behaviors, learners learn better. We validated this approach years ago, demonstrating
It's been said that, "There has never been a classroom better than its teacher!" in short, I couldn't agree more!
We have all been in the role of learner, sitting in a lecture or workshop, or participating in some virtual or on-demand learning activity. The classroom may be literal or figurative...but
Over the past 5+ years I have studied learning from a slightly different perspective...namely, I see learning as a behavior.
When you see the world through this unique lens you quickly come to grips with the reality that the science of learning is now infinitely more complex - we no longer
Over the past few years I have been working on the theory that learning IS a behavior – in other words, not only does learning lead to behavior changes (as classically believed), but learning requires learners to take actions (behaviors) that allow them to learn. To be clear, the idea
If we go all the way back (now nearly 6 years ago) to the original Learning Actions research project, one of the first insights gained was that note-taking is a nearly universal behavior that clinician-learners rely on to support their learning process. In fact, from my initial interviews I found
Woke up this morning still energized by the lessons and discussions from yesterday! It was an absolute pleasure learning and sharing with more than 160 medical educators from throughout eastern Pennsylvania. Congratulations are deserved by the Division of Education in Lehigh Valley Health Network (@LVHN) for a wonderful event.
Here is a
I quickly pulled together a Storify this morning to archive all of the wonder and learning that is CMEpalooza.

The movement towards a rapid learning healthcare system has been gathering steam for just more than a decade. I was first introduced to the idea by its authors and early advocates in 2008:
“The objective of a rapid-learning health care system is simply to learn as fast as possible about what
