There is an old-fashioned way of getting attention that does offer some benefits; namely, simply telling people to pay attention, perhaps accompanied by a blow on the head from an eraser. However, such crude approaches are limited, and there are steps we can take to make learners want to pay attention of their own accord, rather than flogging them into it against their will. One way to get learners to pay more attention is to show them the value of what they are learning to their own future performance as physicians.

To a substantial degree, our implicit, perhaps even inchoate, theories of learning shape our educational practice. What are we trying to teach? How are we trying to teach it? How do we determine whether learners have learned it? The answers to these questions reflect our understanding of the nature of learning itself.

One way to improve learning is to make sure that new information can be meaningfully situated in the context of what learners already understand.
