Program Goal

To build the interactive teaching skills of clinical teachers within the Health Sciences in an interprofessional environment.

Program Audience

The Longitudinal/ Small Group Interprofessional Program targets clinical teachers in Health Science programs across the province of BC.

Program Objectives

By the end of the program, the participants will be able to:

  1. Deliver educational sessions using active learning strategies
  2. Actively participate in interactive sessions on core educational topics
  3. Provide effective and constructive feedback

Program Structure

In small groups of 6, participants attend 7 sessions of 1.5 hours over a year. The group is supported by an experienced facilitator.

The first session is led by the facilitator who demonstrates interactive teaching, while teaching about ‘giving feedback’.

Each member of the small group leads one subsequent session, using interactive strategies to deliver a topic of their choice from a selection of core educational topics. The participants receive feedback and practice providing constructive feedback. Participants are supported in preparing their session.

Participants will be provided with a resource package to help them plan their teaching session. All participants will receive structured feedback from fellow participants at the end of their session. A certificate of completion of the FB program will be awarded upon completing all 6 small group sessions. This program is accredited for up to 9.0 MOC Section 3 Simulation hours.
