The Teaching for Learning and Collaboration program (TLC) is a 7 module longitudinal teaching skills program for multi-professional clinicians in healthcare. The program is relevant to the varied teaching contexts of multi-professional faculty and allows participants to share their teaching experiences and employ common teaching theory and behaviours together.
The 7 modules can be delivered longitudinally as a series or as single sessions:
Each module includes pre-readings, interactive delivery of theoretical content, deconstruction of re-enacted authentic teaching scenarios, role-plays, group discussion, feedback, teaching tip cards and a commitment to change exercise.
Development of the program was informed by social constructivism, andragogy and reflective practice.
The TLC Modules have been offered as part of the Centre for Faculty Development’s workshop series since 2006. It is also currently part of the curriculum for the Education Scholars Program under the Teaching Excellence stream.

Following the Centre's offerings of this TLC Train-the-Trainer workshop, several local organizations have run the TLC program for interprofessional staff at their sites, including:
