The Stanford Faculty Development Program in Medical Teaching is a longstanding nationally-recognized teaching improvement effort designed to help faculty enhance versatility in teaching, better analyze and improve teaching encounters, and engage in collegial discussions about approaches to teaching.


Your course will meet:

Fridays, February 3, 10, 17, and 24, 2017

8:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Breakfast 7:30 - 8:00am

1200 Scott Hall


Light breakfast and box lunch will be provided.

In four 5-hour seminars, participants will be introduced to a seven-category framework for analyzing the teaching process:

1. Establishment of a positive learning climate

2. Control of the teaching session

3. Communication of educational goals

4. Promotion of understanding and retention of knowledge

5. Evaluation of learners

6. Provision of feedback to learners

7. Promotion of self-directed learning

Seminars incorporate didactic presentations, group discussions, analysis of videotaped reenactments of teaching encounters, role play exercises, videotaped review of the role plays, and individual and institutional goal setting. A culminating session allows participants to reflect upon their learning in the course and set individual goals for enhancing teaching and learning. Together, they agree on several goals for improving the climate for learning across settings at the medical school.

Participants must attend all four sessions. Because of the small class size, participatory nature of the course, and the building of knowledge and skills from one session to the next, the absence of just one participant during any session impacts the experience for the entire group.
