Our mission is to provide our faculty with a broad range of information to develop and enhance their teaching skills.
Would you like to improve your skills as a medical educator?
In order to teach well, one must be competent in both course design and teacher-student interactions. During the last two decades, research on college teaching and learning have led to some new ideas about course design, which include active learning, significant learning, and educative assessment. We hope that these resources are helpful in designing better teaching and learning experiences.
