Effective Teacher Series

The 2013-2014 Effective Teacher Series offers an exciting faculty development program featuring five new strands, new presenters, and favorite past presenters returning.

This year’s series highlights include:

  • Georgia Harper, J.D., UT Austin’s Scholarly Communications Advisor, and Emilie Algenio will offer up-to date legal knowledge regarding copyright and fair use.
  • Claudia DeShay, Ph.D., and Helen Mayo will provide new information on the library as a partner in education.
  • Sara Hunt, lead staff editor for the MedEdPORTAL®, will present an overview of the enhanced services for publications, explore the iCollaborative platform, and demonstrate how the Continuing Education Directory offers distinct opportunities for learning.
  • New presenters Paul Pepe, M.D., and Jane Wigginton, M.D., begin the new Teaching Methods Strand with A Gemini approach to optimizing didactics.
  • Seven faculty will highlight three different ways of designing instruction as part of the new Showcase: Instructional Design Strand. This strand was created because many faculty invent new ways to provide instruction.
  • Sergio Huerta, M.D., will focus on "Resident as teacher," part of the new Graduate Medical Education Strand.
  • Shawna Nesbitt, M.D., will initiate the new Institutional Research Strand with data and a discussion on "How do UTSW students perform in relation to our admission policy?"
  • Therona Ramos will demonstrate how 60 minutes using Endnote can save you more than 60 hours, part of the new Research-Software Tool Strand.
