Health sciences faculty invited to Clinical Teaching Community of Practice

UITL's Clinical Teaching Community of Practice has been extended throughout the summer to offer health sciences faculty the opportunity to address delivery of clinical instruction in hybrid or online formats.

Instructors from the Colleges of Dentistry, Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Pharmacy, Public Health, Social Work, and Veterinary Medicine are invited to join the community, which will convene remotely for the first time on Wednesday, June 3 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Participation is welcome at any time.

Faculty participating will meet synchronously once every other week through Aug. 5 to collaborate on clinical teaching challenges and evidence-based instructional strategies. Supplemental resources and modules, as well access to presenter videos, will be made available in Carmen. Instructors can sign up here.

This spring, 29 clinical teaching faculty met to hear from colleagues at Ohio State and other colleges of medicine, pharmacy and education on topics of adult learning, teaching clinical simulation remotely, online facilitation of peer instruction, and delivery of remote assessments, among others. 

CoP facilitators and collaborators include: Larry Hurtubise, director, College of Pharmacy; Carol Hasbrouck, interim director, Clinical and Professional Skills Laboratory, College of Veterinary Medicine; Melinda Rhodes-DiSalvo, associate director, UITL; Anna Lama, director of assessment, Department of Medical Education; West Virginia University School of Medicine; and John D. Mahan, professor of pediatrics in the division of nephrology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
