Teaching for Learning And Collaboration (TLC) Program – Module 5: Checking In

Following a comprehensive literature review on effective teaching skills, the TLC program was developed. This longitudinal teaching skills program is informed by social constructivism, andragogy and reflective practice for multi-professional clinical faculty. The program consists of six modules where each session includes pre-readings, interactive delivery of theoretical content, the deconstruction of re-enacted video teaching simulations derived from multiple health professions, role plays, group discussion, feedback and goal cards.

 **Modules 6 + 5 are offered back-to-back. You can register for just one, or both, of the sessions. Module 6 (Feedback) is offered first.

**For Module 6 (Feedback), please register separately via the CFD workshops page http://cfd.utoronto.ca/workshops

    Simulation Workshop: An introduction to simulation, small group and video-assisted debriefing

    This highly interactive workshop is ideal for educators who have no previous experience with simulation, but are interested in developing an understanding of simulation and debriefing skills. Participants will work through a case study to develop their own simulation by examining a mock competency profile and leveraging relevant simulation modalities.  In addition, we will employ video and role-play to allow participants to practice integrating video into their personal style of debriefing. Finally, we will facilitate a group discussion on potential novel uses of simulation and video-assisted simulation.
