Foundations of Teaching and Learning Course

Foundations of Teaching breakout session image

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.
