Research and Reflections on Teaching

Research and Reflections on Teaching: A Medical and Health Education Series (R&R Series)

The Office of Faculty Development is excited to announce the launch of our R&R Series!

This series will feature topics applicable to all faculty who teach in the MD Undergraduate Program, Postgraduate Medical Education, and Health Professional Programs. These sessions will be:

 

      • Cross cutting – Selected to be broadly useful for clinical faculty, academic faculty, front-line teachers and educational leads
      • Current – Emerging and relevant topics that can impact your teaching right now
      • Curated – Chosen from faculty feedback to specifically target teaching in these areas
      • Multi-perspective – Invited speaker(s) to introduce the latest research and a panel discussion to lead reflection on current and future teaching practice

Past session videos and summary documents are posted at the bottom of this page.

The R&R Series provides an opportunity for faculty to connect and network with two virtual sessions and one hybrid session per academic year.

For virtual sessions, get comfortable, get nourished, come relax and learn with us. Virtual sessions will take place over Zoom but still provide space for questions, discussion and participation.

For in-person sessions, let us nourish you! Food, drinks and opportunities to connect with others will be provided. Hybrid sessions feature local discussions and networking opportunities, with a virtual option for remote participants.
