Health Professional Teaching Skills – Level 1 – Foundational
Faculty Development is a broad range of activities that institutions use to renew or assist faculty, supervisors, preceptors, field instructors, clinical educators, and status appointees in their roles. These activities are designed to improve an individual's knowledge and skills in teaching, education, administration, leadership and research.
This education and teacher training course highlights foundational areas of teaching and learning for health professional teachers that can be applied directly to their teaching context and practice. Core topics such as orienting the learner and delivering feedback are addressed through videos and applied activities.
