Teaching and Supervision During Virtual Care

Virtual care has become the norm, and will continue to be part of healthcare delivery in the future. Many health professionals have been engaging in a steep learning curve as they move their in person care to online.  Some trainees are also involved in the delivery of this care, and yet there is little guidance to inform clinical teachers and educators as to what best practices are to support learning in the context of virtual care.

This workshop will introduce a framework for clinical teachers and educators to be able to prepare, supervise and support a variety of learning goals for learners in the context of various virtual care settings.  Participants will have an opportunity to share their experiences to date and to identify approaches they might bring into their own practices and contexts. 

Please note: A repeat of this workshop is being held on Tuesday August 4, 2020. Please visit  https://cfd.utoronto.ca/workshops/details/1869 to register.

Virtual, or distance, education has become the de facto medium for teaching in 2020. Educators have been thrown into this new world with little warning or guidance and expected to flourish.

Participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences teaching in virtual environments as well as ask many questions in this interactive workshop.

Equity, Diversity, Inclusivity and Accessibility Considerations in Online Teaching and Learning

The recent shift to online learning introduces a number of new considerations related to equity, diversity, inclusivity and accessibility for learners and faculty.  Many of these considerations go unnoticed, and unaddressed, and in doing so can cause harm. This workshop provides an introduction to some important EDIA considerations in the online context, and facilitates the beginning of a dialogue about how to address them in the planning and delivery of this learning, with the goal of creating safer and more inclusive online learning environments.

Teaching for Learning and Collaboration (TLC) Program: Module 2 - Identifying Learner Needs and Setting Objectives

Following a comprehensive literature review on effective teaching skills, the TLC program was developed. This 7-module longitudinal teaching skills program for multi-professional clinical faculty is informed by social constructivism, andragogy and reflective practice. Modules consist of pre-readings, interactive delivery of theoretical content, the deconstruction of re-enacted video teaching simulations, role plays, group discussion and tip cards.

Each of the TLC modules will be offered throughout the CFD 2020-21 workshop series. Participants are not required to attend all modules and can pick and choose which they attend and in which order. Those who attend at least 6 modules will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Centre for Faculty Development. Those who attend 3 or more modules can join the TLC Train-the-Trainer facilitator workshop the next time it is offered.
