Foundational Principles for Teaching and Education
Medical and biomedical education is the foundation of academic medicine. IEE felt it was important to explicitly state and codify our institution's educational principles. It is our hope that the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Foundational Principles for Teaching and Education defined here will be inspiring to Johns Hopkins leaders, educators and learners, to help align all teaching and educational efforts.

October 18, 2017, 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., East Baltimore Campus, 2024 East Monument Street: Foundations of Teaching and Learning Course
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.
