Strategies for Developing and Using Teaching Scripts

2 pm, September 10, 2018

“Teachable moments” arise frequently in the clinic setting, but are we using them to effectively educate our learners? Teaching scripts are a tool that can be used efficiently by the busy academic clinician to enhance learning, and have been used in certain departments to integrate basic science teaching in the clinical curriculum. In this workshop, faculty will learn strategies for developing and using teaching scripts in the clinical setting. 

Inclusive Principles for the Clinical Teaching Context

10 am, October 15, 2018

Inclusive teaching involves deliberately cultivating a learning environment where all learners are treated equitably, have equal access to learning, and feel valued and supported. In this interactive workshop facilitated by pedagogical consultants from U-M’s Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT), clinical faculty will examine four principles for creating an inclusive clinical learning environment, one which attends to instructors' and learners' social identities and to the ways systemic inequities shape dynamics in teaching-learning spaces.

Making the Most of Hot Moments in Clinical Teaching

11 am, January 13, 2020

This is at times connected to a heightened awareness of the social differences in a room or perhaps a result of patient behavior or at times due to the sensitive concerns unfolding with a patient. What are your choices in such a moment? And how can you take advantage of such moments as opportunities to advance trainee learning?
