Self-Directed Learning

As supported by the UIWSOM guiding principles, Self-Directed Learning (SDL) is reserved time for learners to independently or collaboratively research new knowledge, practice skills, and consolidate session objectives (SO). On weekday afternoons, SDL allows learners to engage in higher-order Socratic dialogue directly with UIWSOM faculty during optional, learner-initiated meetings with faculty. In addition, weekly Review and Reinforcement (R&R) sessions are offered during SDL for direct instruction. R&R questions are submitted in SIGS. “Green Time” is approximately 15–20 hours per week.
