Each year the library is offered an opportunity to introduce PubMed to first year medical students. As we began planning this year’s session, we decided to use the opportunity to deliver the instruction in a different way. Innovative methods of instruction are often discussed within the library community, one of which is the idea of a “flipped classroom.” A flipped classroom is a model of teaching where the lecture is viewed by students prior to class. Class time is then used for other learning activities.1 According to Youngkin, implementing a flipped classroom in medical education can be more efficient, more flexible, and lead to improved performance.2
Does your research do all of the following?
- Generate genomic data, either human or non-human.
- Produce “large-scale” data, i.e., genome-wide association studies (GWAS), single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays, genome sequence, transcriptomic, epigenomic, and/or gene expression data.
- Receive funding by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), either intramural, contract, or grant-based.
If so, NIH policy now requires you to share your data. To learn more, keep reading.
