More Teaching Resources
The Office of Faculty Development fulfills its mandate of supporting faculty by developing educational activities and materials to meet the the current and future needs of individual teachers and programs.
Our team works closely with faculty members to create new resources to promote a culture of teaching and learning within the Faculty of Medicine. You can explore these in our Resource Library by scrolling through our commonly accessed quick links or by searching by keywords or category.
Below we have highlighted resources that are immediately applicable for clinical faculty. Our inclusivity resources help the Faculty of Medicine create respectful, diverse, inclusive learning and work environments that are anti-racist and that support the exercise of human rights for all members of our community. Thank you for doing your part by familiarizing yourself with them.
