The competencies to educate, teach and lead in medical and health professions education differ from those needed to be an effective scientist and/or professional. In the 21st century, the culture of education, training and human capacity development is rapidly changing. In the medical and health field, training, supervision and services are fused and inseparable. The clinical learning environment (CLE) is unique as the “patient” is the focus around him all educational activities take place.
By the end of the course the participants were able to:
- Apply principles of “Adult learning” and contemporary learning theories in curriculum and course development, teaching and assessment of students and residents
- Develop “competency based” course, training program or curriculum using a systematic approach
- Use a blend of authentic “learner centered” strategies when teaching in large group, small group in the “clinical” and workplace environment
This course is ideal for early career, newly selected medical professors.
