Dr. John Pelley is a professor of Medical Education at Texas Tech University School of Medicine. His contribution to medical education has been recognized with several awards including: the Medical Education Scholarship Award from the Southern Group on Educational Affairs (2006), the Alpha-Omega-Alpha Robert J. Glaser Distinguished Teacher Award (2010) and the TTUHSC Chancellors Council Distinguished Teacher Award (2010). The challenges of helping students with learning issues caused him to acquire a strong interest in the learning process and he has devoted the last 30 years to educational projects to improve the ability of medical students to cope with their medical education. Dr. Pelley speaks regularly at medical schools helping both faculty and students understand how to create lifelong, self-directed learning behaviors.
This presentation will use something we take for granted, bodybuilding, to help us become mindful of something that we find mysterious, learning. The outcome of both bodybuilding and learning is growth – in both function and form. This special story of how the brain works will include the role of sleep, emotion, decision-making, and mindfulness in learning whether in the classroom or in daily life.
