Clinical Coordinators 101

Leading clinical education and securing clinical sites is a unique role that clinical coordinators are charged with undertaking. To thrive in this role, learning alongside peers is key to success. Clinical Coordinators 101 is the perfect place to learn with other faculty who are also new to the role. This workshop is led by expert facilitators who are experienced clinical coordinators themselves. This workshop is designed to offer new clinical coordinators practical advice and a wealth of useful strategies to help them get acclimated to their new role and begin to develop a personalized toolbox of resources and strategies.

Faculty Skills 101

Stepping into the role of faculty member is exciting and challenging, especially if you are new to education. Active learning, learner-centeredness, and learning objectives — it’s a lot to take in. Fortunately, you don’t have to figure it all out on your own. This workshop is designed for faculty who are new to education and looking for a place to get acclimated to the role of educator. In this three-day workshop, you will learn the basic techniques and tools required for effective teaching and learning from experienced educators who have the expertise and passion to help new faculty become excellent educators.
