Prior to this workshop participants will complete an online module with self-assessment followed by an in-person workshop where they will learn and practice tools to improve effectiveness of clinical teaching in any environment. During this interactive case-based workshop, participants will work in teams to address common learner dilemmas (e.g., the ‘disinterested learner’) in various clinical scenarios with a focus on inpatient and outpatient settings. Participants will engage in discussion about situations they might encounter in their field. Each case will have small group discussion addressing the dilemma, followed by large group discussion, and then demonstration/discussion of specific teaching techniques. 


Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Name 5 teaching techniques that can be used in the inpatient or outpatient setting
  • Demonstrate at least 1 method of teaching that can be used in any clinical environment
  • Describe 1 or more solutions to challenges in teaching
  • Commit to using 1 new teaching technique in your clinical teaching in the next month
