Workshops for Pre-clerkship Teaching Elective Participants
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.
- Design effective learning objectives following the ABCD method
- Select appropriate and engaging instructional strategies and technologies to support learning objectives
- 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 ().
