Effective Teacher Series

The 2014-2015 Effective Teacher Series offers you another exciting faculty development program. We have incorporated two new Educational Strands, included seven new presenters, and invited past favorite presenters to return.

This year’s series highlights include:

  • Both our fall and spring programs will offer the Educational Technology Strand. In the fall UT Southwestern Instructional Technology Learning Specialist Christopher Faulkner will demonstrate our new classroom video capture platform called Mediasite: Lecture Capture and, Oh, So Much More. Mr. Faulkner will return in the spring to present data linking Faculty Development to Educational Technology.
  • Faculty Educational Support Services is a new Strand offered by our UT Southwestern Health Sciences Digital Library and Learning Center. In the fall, Jane Scott will present Video Production describing the faculty services from project design to production. In the spring, Cameron Kainerstofer will describe our Institutional Repository service.
  • If you want to learn how Team-Based Learning was used in the MS1 Human Behavior Course, come to our Showcase: Instructional Design Strand where Lindsey Pershern, M.D., will describe her results using this method of instruction.
  • Medical Education Curriculum is a new Strand. With the assistance of the Strategic Planning Committee members we will learn about the progress on the Undergraduate Medical Education Curriculum Reform. As a new presenter, Lillian Niwagaba, M.D., will continue developing this Strand by elaborating ways of Incorporating Global Health into your Curriculum.
  • Jason Fish, M.D., is one of our new presenters for the Educational Research Strand. He will offer his results on Testing the Effectiveness of a Quality Improvement Program for 3rd Year Medical Students in Internal Medicine Rotation.
  • One of our highly rated presenters, Steve Cannon, M.D., Ph.D., brings to our Teaching Strategies Strand some new perspectives on Giving Feedback.
  • If you want to know to help our students understand what counts as evidence when utilizing educational resources come to Jennifer Cuthbert M.D.’s presentation on Changing sequence of words to “Evidence Online & Novice (EON’s): An approach to finding and filtering facts so it can be readily abbreviated. Continuing in this strand, Sara Hunt, AAMC Lead Staff Editor, will explore MedEdPORTAL – Advancing Scholarship, Sharing Innovations & Promoting Continuing Education.
  • Dr. Palma Longo’s presentation on How Learning Works from Theory-Cognitive Principles to Practice: Cognitive Techniques will span three Strands, Teaching Strategies, Graduate Medical Education, and Educational Research.
