Past event

Effective teaching skills - Birmingham

An interactive 2-day workshop to help healthcare professionals in designing and delivering teaching in a wide range of contexts.

What you will learn

Doctors are expected to teach as part of their roles, yet many have received no formal training in this area. Teaching skills can be improved by developing key aspects of your practice, including preparation, choosing appropriate teaching methods, and utilising appropriate assessment.

These, as well as other aspects of effective teaching practice, will be explored theoretically and practically on this workshop, which will also include tips on how to deal with difficult learners.

Great opportunity to learn techniques for teaching in a fun, friendly environment. I will be using these techniques in my daily practice.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to

  • develop an effective educational environment and help trainees learn within that environment
  • write objectives for a teaching session
  • design and use a session plan
  • recognise the advantages and disadvantages of large and small group teaching and identify how to maximise interaction and learning in both
  • discuss good practice in teaching and learning evaluation
  • plan and undertake an evaluation of a teaching session.

This workshop forms part of the RCP Educator accreditation
