New ideas and skills for adaptable and inclusive learning environments

Streaming live on February 3 - 4, 2022 

Join us for the 4th Developing Medical Educators of the 21st Century course, offered virtually, which means you can learn with us from practically anywhere! We are bringing together medical educators to share lessons learned during the pandemic, and discuss how to apply these lessons to reimagine and adapt learning environments. How do we foster a growth mindset among our learners and optimize use of technology? How do we create equitable, inclusive and welcoming environments for all? These and other topics will be addressed in a variety of formats, including plenary sessions by renowned educators, skill-building workshops and consultations with experts.

This 2-day intensive course, organized in collaboration with the Kern National Network for Caring and Character in Medicine, targets medical educators from undergraduate and graduate medical education seeking to develop or improve skills in teaching and educational program design. Flexible programming allows participants to select sessions aligned with their interest and experience level.

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Adapt strategies for curricular innovation and apply them to address needs at your own institution / program.
  • Apply innovative teaching methods to your clinical teaching.
  • Apply innovative teaching methods to your foundational science teaching.
