Teaching for Learning & Collaboration (TLC) Program: Module 1 – Setting The Educational Climate

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.

TLC comprises 6 modules (each module will be 2 hours for the CFD workshops series 2016-17). Participants are not required to attend all modules and can pick and choose which they attend. Those who do attend all 6 modules will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Centre for Faculty Development. Those who attend at least 3 modules can join the TLC Train-the-Trainer workshop.

**Modules are offered back-to-back. You can register for just one, or both, of the sessions.
