Foundations of Teaching and Learning Course

Teaching is an essential part of the tri-partite mission of Johns Hopkins Medicine. Many Hopkins faculty members who teach regularly have noted they have never had formal training in teaching skills.

The IEE, in partnership with the Office of Faculty Development and the Johns Hopkins Faculty Development Program, is pleased to offer a half-day course on the Foundations of Teaching and Learning (FTL). This course is designed to cover the highest-yield teaching skills topics in a brief time. The course is designed for new faculty, faculty who may want a “refresher”, or faculty seeking additional skills. We believe that even expert, senior faculty will enjoy and benefit from the course.

This course will be offered several times a year and CME credit is available for faculty members.

Course Content Includes:

  • Completion of two online modules prior to attending the course:
         1) Approaches to Teaching and Learning
         2) Giving and Receiving Formative Feedback.

Modules are hosted on IEE Improve Your Teaching Website: https://improveteaching.med.jhmi.edu

  • Live Session which covers:
    • Promoting a Positive Learning Environment
    • Facilitating Learning in Small Groups
    • Feedback and Coaching in Medical and Biomedical Education

Course Fee: $450 – eligible for tuition remission
