Instructional Development Pilots

The Instructional Development Department (IDev) is ready to work with you to bring your new course ideas to life.  Course pilots typically consist of 2 planning meetings prior to the quarter, followed by varying levels of collaboration through the course/clerkship period.  Every pilot is unique and tailored to the specific course.  Reach out to begin a pilot by emailing adamhain@stanford.edu.  


MedEd Innovation Studio

Coming April 2021...take your teaching to the next level!

You are invited to participate in MedEd Innovation Studio, an 8-week online program focused on using design thinking for curriculum development. You will learn how to apply new ways of teaching and learning in your courses and programs in real-time. This project-based program will feature a blend of large group, small group, and asynchronous activities, as well as weekly one-on-one coaching. Since you will be applying what you learn in real-time, you should be teaching or administering a course of some kind during the program.
