Editor’s note: Jeremy Lundberg, MSSW, chief executive officer of EthosCE Learning Management System and DLC Solutions, has some really smart friends. So, he thought, why not ask them if they’d be willing to share some of their expertise? He did, and the result is a series of webinars that provide practical advice on continuing medical education topics.
In addition to the webinar summarized here, there are two more webinars currently available on demand: “New Data on Clinician Learning: What Does It Mean for Your CME Programs?” and “Driving CME Process Innovation Using Lean Six Sigma Methodologies.” The next webinar, scheduled for live viewing in February, will be on overcoming organizational obstacles to e-learning. Lundberg plans to offer one per month throughout 2014.

- First determine what you want to change in your learners from your needs assessment/gap analysis work. Then choose objectives that are realistic for your setting, a design and format that will help you fill those gaps, and content that addresses the learning objectives that focus on the gaps. And you can craft outcomes questions that measure how those gaps have been filled, said Dietze.
- Consider using a chart so you can visualize the connections throughout the alignment process. It also helps to link each objective to a specific gap very early in the process, and to link every outcomes assessment question to a specific learning objective.
