The Disease Mechanism of Alzheimer's Dementia
This teaching strategy is designed to help the student become more proficient in understanding Alzheimer's dementia as a disease process. It was created to pair a topic that is heavily laden with complexity with an engaging approach. The premise of the strategy is similar to a game show where the participants are quizzed on content areas about the pathophysiology, etiology, course of the illness, and epidemiology of Alzheimer's dementia. Designed as a flipped lecture approach, the students learn about the content through readings prior to class and participate in the game format in class. Learning objectives, learner pre-work, suggested learning activities and readings, a slideshow PowerPoint game, and other materials are included. Files are downloadable/printable.
