Convener: Maxim Topaz, CTL Graduate Fellow, Nursing
Location: Fagin 213
Summary: Traditionally, healthcare professionals were educated in physically and conceptually separated settings. There is an increasing understanding that in order to improve the quality of the provided healthcare services, more interdisciplinary collaboration and effective team work is needed. Discussion on teaching challenges and strategies in the changing educational environments is critical in order to facilitate and advance this transition.
The workshop will present the new inter-professional approach to healthcare professionals’ education developed by the Lancet/IOM initiative. In particular, the workshop will address the structure of future healthcare professionals’ education, global aspects related to teaching and learning, curriculum transformation and innovations that are needed to achieve better partnerships between educators, community and healthcare systems. Suggestions for current teaching assistants and professors will be also provided.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the School of Nursing and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
