COVID-19 Alert

CFD`s primary concern is the health and safety of its staff, faculty and community as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation. After much consultation and on the advice of our federal and provincial governments, we have made the difficult but important decision to postpone all in person programming until further notice.

We are continuing to host our BPER rounds virtually and are accepting registrations for our fall programs.

We will continue to keep you updated as we navigate this uncertain time.

CFD is pleased to share a list of resources for virtual teaching and learning. This list includes quick tips and technological tools to get started with virtual teaching and education. Virtual Teaching & Learning

Teaching for Learning and Collaboration (TLC) Program Train-the-Trainer Workshop

The TLC Program is a 6 module teaching skills program for multi-professional clinicians in healthcare. The 6 modules are offered as part of the Education Scholars Program curriculum as well as part of the Centre’s workshop series. Due to the popularity of TLC, the Centre has developed a workshop to train past TLC participants to teach the program – a capacity building approach.

Currently, an offering of this workshop is not scheduled. Please visit this site again in the future as information will be posted on scheduled sessions.
