Program Summary

Teaching for Transformation: Summer Education Institute (SEI) is an annual 3-day faculty development program, taking place every June. SEI brings together educators, clinicians, administrators, leaders, and scholars interested in the theory and practice of transformative education and critical pedagogies. Critical pedagogy is grounded in a social and education vision of justice and equity.  SEI participants strive to prepare health professions learners for the humanistic, social-relational aspects of health care practice with a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. Transformative education can support critically reflective practitioners in navigating practice challenges and changing systems.

The program is offered in collaboration with the Centre for Ambulatory Care Education (CACE), Women’s College Hospital.

History of the program

Heading into its fourth year, TforT: SEI was inspired by a growing need in health professions education and practice to prepare clinicians for a multitude of complex roles. For example, the health advocate, the collaborator, and the professional. These roles must be performed within a complex health care system that aims to support compassionate, equitable, and person-centered care orientations, while also managing limited resources, quality, safety, and accountability. Aligned with these needs, TforT: SEI brings together educators interested in the theory and practice of transformative education and critical pedagogies.

To date, 51 people have attended from 16 health organizations and 4 countries, representing professions such as: nursing, medicine, psychotherapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, research, dietetics, midwifery, dentistry, patient education, program management, and community engagement.

Target Audience

We invite health professions teachers/educators to join us. TforT: SEI participants are interested in preparing health professions learners for the humanistic, social and relational aspects of health care practice with a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusivity. TforT: SEI participants may have found that more common or dominant paradigms of education – such as behaviourist and cognitivist approaches – fail to fully fulfil goals such as these. Transformative education can help develop critically reflective practitioners who effectively navigate complex practice challenges and changing systems.

Format and Structure

The program is currently offered in collaboration with the Centre for Ambulatory Care Education (CACE), Women’s College Hospital.  TforT: SEI is typically a three-day intensive program, usually running 8:30am – 5:00pm with one evening event.  Participants must be able to attend all days.

***Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic we will be holding TforT: SEI online over four days in June 2021***
