Educator Development Program : Teaching and Learning Series

College of Medicine

The Teaching and Leadership Series is a component of the Educator Development Program that combines face-to-face group workshops and independent work to help faculty foster understanding of teaching and curriculum development as it applies to their professional practice. Enrolled faculty will have opportunities to design, and, wherever possible, implement curricula, while participating in interactive sessions on the design, implementation, and evaluation of evidence-based teaching in the health sciences. 

Learning Outcomes

All participants can expect to:

  • Develop a teaching philosophy 
  • Implement appropriate, effective, and differentiated pedagogical teaching and learning approaches across common venues and settings 
  • Apply basic design principles, principles of clinical teaching and learning and research-based best practices to an individually designed curriculum 
  • Provide peers and learners with clear, effective, and constructive feedback while attending to learners needs 
  • Incorporate technology into planned learning experiences 
  • Critically evaluate instructional models and assessments 
  • Disseminate curriculum project
Participation Requirements

The Educator Development Program is sponsored by our partners at FAME at the College of Medicine. It is a year-long cohort program that begins in the autumn semester. Participants are admitted via an application in the spring prior to the start of the cohort. 

Participants must attend the 4 of the 5 face-to-face sessions, complete pre-modules and complete assignments outside the face-to-face sessions in order to advance toward participant outcomes. In advance of the first face-to-face session, participants must complete the Teaching and Leadership Series Learners’ Needs Assessment; which will subsequently inform differentiated approaches to engaging faculty in educational activities throughout the program.

Applications for the 2021-22 cohort are being accepted through May 31.
