Finding ways to develop teaching skills, while maintaining the workload and schedule of your clinical role, isn’t easy. However, to be an effective medical educator requires continued development of your teaching-specific, nonclinical skills. To help you with this balance, the Practice-Based Small Group (PBSG-ED) modules were created and made readily available to all Waterloo Regional Campus faculty members.
What is PBSG-ED?
- Peer reviewed faculty development modules specifically targeting medical educators.
- Case-based modules, running from 90 to 120 minutes in groups of five to 10 people.
- Facilitated by a fellow faculty member at your worksite.
Benefits to you
- Stay within your clinical workplace to participate in faculty development.
- Facilitated, self-learning modules allow you to experience a learning environment similar to the McMaster problem-based learning curriculum used in the undergraduate MD program.
- Topics have been identified by your peers as the most important for developing as a medical educator.
- Medical Mistakes: How to help learners with errors and adverse outcomes
- Time Efficient Teaching Strategies: Teaching on the fly
- The Learner in Difficulty
