Workshops for Pre-clerkship Teaching Elective Participants

March 2019


This series of teaching-related workshops will immerse students in a supportive learning community where you will explore a number of classroom and clinical teaching mechanisms, present a short teaching session, work on communication skills, as well as practice giving and receiving meaningful and constructive feedback.


Specifically, at the end of these workshops, you will be able to:

· Explain the fundamentals of teaching and learning in medical settings

· Formulate a self-development plan for both classroom and clinical teaching.

· Create and implement an instructional session, considering the alignment between learning objectives, assessment, and instructional strategies.

  1. Design effective learning objectives following the ABCD method
  2. Select appropriate and engaging instructional strategies and technologies to support learning objectives
  3. Create assessments that support learning objectives and foster student motivation

· Facilitate and contribute to small group discussions that raise the level of the educational experience

· Provide constructive feedback to students and colleagues that promotes a scholarly dialogue

· Implement the principles and best practices of clinical skills-based education



These workshops will be held from 6-9pm on March 13th and March 20 (Wednesdays). Attendance at both workshops is mandatory. Anyone who is ill or has a personal or family emergency must contact Student Affairs and Drs. Barry, Chen, Noramly, and Waggoner-Fountain. 


To encourage you to incorporate the teaching and learning principles into your own practices, we have designed a number of assignments. Microteaching and clinical skill presentations will occur during the class time but will require some preparation time. You will also compose a reflective teaching statement and construct multiple choice questions and submit them to our Collab course website ().
