Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Formulate strategies for teaching adult learners in large and small group settings using innovative technology as well as basic teaching techniques.
  • Utilize effective tools for teaching in the clinic setting.
  • Apply principles of interactive learning to larger audiences.

Whether your audience is your patient in clinic, a medical student or resident on rotation, or an auditorium filled with colleagues, dermatologists in every setting have the opportunity to teach. This comes naturally to some, but all need to learn and practice the skills to become a great educator. Attendees will learn innovative ways to teach patients, staff, trainees, and colleagues in face-to-face and large group settings. Participants will identify the skills needed to be an effective mentor for others.
