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 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 next time it is offered.

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

For Module 1 (Setting the Educational Climate), please register separately.**

Following this workshop, participants will:

  1. Describe reasons for identifying learner needs and setting goals.
  2. Demonstrate the use of questions for identifying learner needs.
  3. Compare different ways to create goals.
  4. Describe the steps involved in negotiation of goals.
