Faculty Development

Teaching is a comprehensive skill that can be deepened and refined through practice, collaboration, and ongoing learning. This page offers information and resources to help you create engaging and meaningful educational experiences for medical students and residents.

Some ways you might consider using these resources:

  • Review and collect teaching tips and strategies found on the Teaching Resources page. These resources target the core skills for teaching and assessing learners in a competency-based training program.
  • Identify your local Faculty Development Site Faculty and ask him or her to come for an office visit or put on a faculty development session on a topic of interest. The Family Practice department has developed small group learning modules on topics such as Observation and Feedback, Field Notes, Learner-centered Teaching Strategies, Learner in Difficulty, and Performance Assessment that can be requested.

While the resources included here are tailored for the teaching of Family Medicine learners, additional resources and information on faculty wide faculty development activities can be found by visiting the Faculty of Medicine’s Faculty Development website.
