Tools for Effective Teaching: Junior Faculty Teaching Skills Workshop
Presented by the Stanford Faculty Development Center for Medical Teachers
for The Stanford Medicine Teaching and Mentoring Academy
In collaboration with the Stanford Faculty Development Center for Medical Teachers, the Teaching and Mentoring Academy offers a Junior Faculty Teaching and Mentoring Workshop that benefits both Basic Science faculty and Clinical faculty within the School of Medicine.
All interested faculty are invited to take part in the workshop. The primary goal is to introduce junior faculty to pedagogical and methodologies that improve teaching and mentoring through the School of Medicine and to encourage faculty to learn new skills that will support their development as effective educators.
The overall goal of this workshop is to provide participants with practical tools for enhancing their teaching effectiveness. Participants will become familiar with an educational framework for analyzing and improving teaching. Topics to be covered include Learning Climate, Control of the Session, Communication of Goals, Promoting Understanding and Retention, Evaluating Learners, Providing Feedback to Learners, and Promoting Self-Directed Learning.
The two-hour teaching workshop is being offered to basic science and clinical faculty. The workshop is designed to be interactive and incorporates multiple instructional methods including mini-lectures, discussion of video re-enactments of actual teaching interactions, application exercises, and setting personal goals for future teaching.
