    Self-Directed Learning

    Self-Directed LearningAs supported by the University of the Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic Medicine (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) and learning outcomes (LO). On weekday afternoons, SDL allows learners to engage in higher-order Socratic dialogue directly with UIWSOM faculty during optional, learner-initiated office meetings.
