The course is “very engaging and interactive” and “affords those selected to have an opportunity to participate in a unique program” noted several participants.
We have designed a program, states Course Director, Angelisa Paladin, MD, that “offers both an adult education foundation, but also represents a model of effective teaching principles and techniques including the latest technology as well as career development strategies.”
Interactive workshops are to be presented by leading educators and will cover the following topics:
o Adult learning theory and practice
o Developing curriculum
o Interactive techniques and exercises
o Case-based learning
o Designing a teaching-learning website
o Developing a teaching portfolio

They must be nominated by their program/department chair and complete an application, which indicates their interest and potential for pursuing a teaching career.
