|Pre-Class Learning Objectives|
|In-Class Learning Objectives|
|I didn’t learn anything medically related to their therapies; I feel that a lot of people were afraid to ask questions since the panelists focused on how people offend them|
|I wish the transgender panel was longer|
|n/a—I wish the panel was longer though. It was very interesting.|
|I think the patient panel was pretty useful. I would suggest the patients talk about their medications and specific side effects more though rather than almost completely about their life story. That was pretty interesting tho’ and I will be able to apply it to practice.|
|I would prefer the jeopardy game be more of a team activity than individual. Also during the panel, I felt one panelist made it not fine to “mess up” and I appreciated how the other two were more open to saying as long as you try or apologize then it will be fine.|
|The panel discussion was a really helpful tool to further understand the material. It was helpful to have real patients give their experiences and helpful advice on how to appropriately and effectively approach and discuss the topic without offending them.|
|The least effective activity this week was the Small Group Discussion on Gender because no one really knew what to say. We all just kind of sat there like, “I don’t know when I knew what I was I just was.”|
|the patient panel was extremely helpful and enlightening and gave me tips for how to make things less awkward|
|The panel was great. I appreciated the counselling case because some people felt a little awkward but it was an open environment to work out any issues.|
|I wish we had used the longer class period for the panel discussion and the shorter class period for small group discussion and counseling cases|
|I understand the panel discussion and the opinions they provided, but it was a very biased liberal based panel. It’s not your fault, but this topic is very opinion oriented and hard to capture.|
|Though the panel was very insightful, it would’ve been great to hear about the panel members’ experience with medications.|
