A Few Insights from our Icebreaker Session

What is something people would be surprised to learn about you? "I have a three legged dog."

Dr. John Leard

"Education is similar to teaching someone to fish. You can't learn it from a book. You have to teach the skills beyond the book."

Rachael Pandzik

Dr. Mary Wurm-Schaar is looking forward to the discovery of the Vulcan Mind Meld.

Modern Art was Meredith Baines's favorite college class. "I wanted to appreciate a red square on a white background."

What got you into Health Science? "I went to a dental school to get my teeth cleaned when I was five years old and I've wanted to be a dentist ever since."

Dr. Margo Melchor

Pete Breitinger got into Health Science because of a medical library librarian who kept pushing him towards it.

What is something people would be surprised to learn about you? "I started out in dental school before I went into optometry."

Team Seals

Seal Activity

After the icebreaker activity, we gathered in small groups to construct a seal out of poster board, colorful paper, and a variety of pre-cut shapes. Each group was encouraged to make their seal an expression of their philosophy and goals relevant to the conference and health science education generally.

It’s said that constraints breed creativity, and that was certainly in evidence during the seal activity. In just a few minutes, with limited supplies, each group produced a unique seal and explained its symbolism.
