Crafting a Collaborative Curriculum: Harnessing the Power of Bricks Create for Enhanced Student EngagementMonday, June 12
2:30 - 3:00 pm

Unlock the Power of Bricks Create Clone & Translate

New digital learning platforms are transforming higher education and providing high-quality education content at little to no cost. Educators can now reach large, even global audiences. Yet, while more than 7,000 languages are spoken worldwide, most medical education material is only available in a handful of languages. While medical schools go to great lengths to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion, resource equity is rarely mentioned.

The newest feature in Bricks Create, Clone & Translate is an AI-powered tool that translates cloned Bricks into four different languages:

  • Spanish
  • Portuguese
  • French
  • Vietnamese
  • More to come!

While understanding English is advantageous to med students and clinicians–since most research, reference materials, and study tools are much more readily available in English–expanding access to non-English speaking countries means delivering the same type of high-quality material in their native tongue. Reducing this barrier will represent a giant leap forward in resource equity and a step toward achieving our goals.

Bricks Create for Students

Bricks Create is for more than just faculty.

As an educator, you know it's essential to provide tools to empower students to take ownership of their learning process. Bricks Create for Students allows them to create, share, and learn, making learning more engaging and exciting.

Engage Your Students

With Bricks Create for Students, the empowerment possibilities are endless. Here are just a few ways you can utilize it in your classroom:

  • Assign projects and activities that require building a Case Connection within a Brick.
  • Let your students get creative and create videos that enhance their Bricks.
  • Encourage peer teaching by having students present on a chosen topic.
  • Create a collaborative Brick on a topic you're working on in class.

Student Bricks Are Not Searchable

One important note: any Bricks that students create, clone, or publish will only be found on their Author page, not on the Rx Brick Exchange or their 'My School' page.

Ask us for a demo of the Bricks Create at Booth #----! We can't wait to show you.

The Rx Brick Exchange

Have you heard about the first-of-its-kind, open-access curriculum exchange we host? It's called the Brick Exchange, and it aims to empower educators to share and access Bricks with a global community. This digital ecosystem builds on Rx Bricks and Bricks Create – with limitless potential.

A Healthier World

Like our esteemed friends at IAMSE, we aim to build a healthier world through accessible, sustainable medical education. The Brick Exchange was designed to expand opportunities for students and educators from around the globe to learn from and collaborate with passionate Brick builders.

Using our revolutionary digital learning platform, Rx Bricks, the Rx Brick Exchange enables educators and learners to share free, open-access educational modules that address topics important to you and your students. We aim for the Brick Exchange to become a community where ideas and expertise are shared to develop engaging, open-access health science content.

Boosting Medical Education Accessibility for All

Together, we're enhancing health professions education by offering new ways to find, build, and share digital learning experiences and making them more accessible for learners worldwide.

In the Brick Exchange, you can:

  • Find, share, and build meaningful digital learning experiences on a global scale
  • Create reading lists
  • Clone Bricks and make them your own
  • Contribute to a shared curricular ecosystem

The Brick Builder Grant

In 2022, ScholarRx expanded its mission to create a healthier world through accessible and sustainable medical education by launching the Brick Builder Grant. This grant aimed to empower educators and students worldwide to develop free and open digital learning modules, called Bricks, around underrepresented medical topics.

The grant recipients came from across the globe, allowing them to access the ScholarRx curriculum authoring platform and the complete Rx Bricks digital library. Grant awardees came from Belgium, Canada, Denmark, India, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Rwanda, UAE, Uganda, the United States, and the West Indies.

Through this innovative and powerful digital learning system, grantees created short, interactive learning Bricks on a range of topics, including:

  • Identifying Dermatologic Diseases in Skin of Color
  • Hair Loss Disorders in Skin of Color
  • Social Determinants of Health Competence in Medical Education
  • Rural, Remote, and Planetary Health
  • Clinical Enzymology
  • Non-Scarring Alopecia
  • Implicit Bias

We're pleased to announce that applications are now open for 2023! Educators and students (with a faculty advisor/reviewer) are encouraged to apply to win one of 50 grants of $500.
