Peer to Peer
The Peer to Peer program comprises 6-sessions where small groups of clinical faculty learn to teach using participatory strategies.
Who is the program for?
The program is suited for clinical teachers in the medical and health professions education in the Faculty of Medicine, UBC, who have prior experience in teaching.
What is the goal of the program?
The twin goals of the program are to provide clinical teachers in FoM:
- an interprofessional small group setting to learn with, from and about each other.
- an opportunity to develop the skills to teach interactively and give and receive constructive feedback, in the context of teaching.
What is the structure of the program?
In small groups of 6-8, participants attend 6 sessions of 1.5 hours over a year. The group is supported by an experienced facilitator.
The first session is led by the facilitator who demonstrates interactive teaching, while teaching about ‘giving feedback’.
Each member of the small group leads one subsequent session, using interactive strategies to deliver a topic of their choice from a selection of core educational topics. The participants receive feedback and practice providing constructive feedback. Participants are supported in preparing their session.
What are the requirements for completion of the program?
For completion of the program, participants are required to attend all sessions and lead the delivery of one interactive session.
Upon completion of the program, participants will receive a completion certificate.
