ACEP Testing New Learning System

Any interest in helping ACEP test a new learning system and receiving 40 free PEER VII questions?

The system is called “Spaced Education,” and it’s based on the theory that adults learn better in short, repeated “doses” rather than in large, intense bouts of studying. The College is testing it on the ACEP PEER VII Sampler and when you sign up, you’ll get one or two questions by e-mail every day. When you answer each question, you’ll get an in-depth discussion of the correct answer. If you miss it, you’ll get it again in about a week. If you get it right, you’ll see it once more in about 2 or 3 weeks.

This method of questioning and reinforcement has been found in randomized, controlled trials to improve knowledge acquisition, increase long-term retention, change behavior, and boost learner’s ability to assess their knowledge. And you get to decide how often you want to get the questions.

Here’s how to sign up:

  • Go to http://acep.spaceded.com
  • Click on the PEER VII cover image
  • Click “Enroll Now for FREE” and choose your delivery options

All ACEP asks is that you provide feedback. About 10 days or 2 weeks after you sign up, one of your questions will include a link to some evaluation questions.  And 40 free PEER questions are yours!
