Effective Teacher Series
The 2015-2016 Effective Teacher Series offers another exciting faculty development program. All eight educational strands are represented, including the newest, Research Informing Practice. The program features nine new presenters as well.
In the new strand “Research Informing Practice,” findings from medical education research and clinical research can offer ways to improve practice.
With the completion of the new $5 million Team-Based Learning Center, housed within the third floor of the Health Sciences Digital Library (E3), the Office of Medical Education will offer a true faculty development workshop venue this year. James Wagner, M.D., will present “Creating Learning Objectives” using the TBL format.
