Faculty Development

Welcome

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.

Upcoming Opportunity: 
Brownbag it! IAMSE Webcast Seminar Fall 2015 Series
5 consecutive Thursdays, September 10-October 8, 2105. From 12:00 - 1:00 PM, in 260 White Hall

"Evolution and Revolution in Medical Education – Placing Faculty and Students in New Experiences for Teaching and Learning"

The Fall IAMSE webinar series will be focusing on programs that are changing roles of faculty from traditional “sage-on-the-stage” content deliverers to motivators, synthesizers, mentors, facilitators, and learning coaches; changing learning environments from the traditional classroom to more experiential clinical learning sites based in-part on health system needs, utilizing competencies and milestones to measure student learning and progress that foster a flexible progression through the curriculum and integrate basic science into the clerkships, developing curricula that focus on “student well-being and resiliency”, and modifying timelines for student progression to residency.
