Description/Learning Outcomes: There is a long tradition of clinician educators transmitting medical knowledge to learners. While this form of teaching develops learners’ funds of knowledge (what to think), it can fall short in helping them apply this knowledge as they diagnose and manage patients (how to think). Bridging the gap between the “what” and the “how” requires clinician educators to broadcast their cognition by thinking aloud as they analyze a case and make clinical decisions. However, many clinician educators may struggle to verbalize their internal cognitive processes because they lack the language to articulate how they make clinical decisions and may worry about broadcasting knowledge gaps or uncertainty. This active workshop will use the concepts of cognitive apprenticeship (strategic disclosure of thinking) and intellectual streaking (strategic disclosure of uncertainties) to enhance clinician educators’ ability to think aloud. These two capabilities can help clinician educators shift the main driver of clinical teaching from solely knowledge transmission to including the narration of their own cognition. Attendees will gain practical strategies for using thinking aloud to teach the cognitive skills necessary for clinical practice.
