Learning Objectives

  • Develop the skills necessary to teach in a clinical setting, provide effective feedback to students, incorporate evidence-based teaching strategies, and develop an effective curriculum
  • Improved coaching and mentoring capabilities, educational scholarship, clinical care, and scholastic contribution to health sciences teaching and instruction
  • Demonstrate an ability to teach and educate other learners, incorporate digital learning methods to teach healthcare professionals, recognize the importance of diversity in medical education, and obtain knowledge related to addressing implicit bias, stereotype threat, and imposter syndrome. 

Professional Practice Gap

Advances in the science of learning require healthcare educators to develop and practice new teaching skills consistent with the current academic climate. Faculty from the various colleges within the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) require skills and resources to further their professional development. This annual symposium fosters shared knowledge and serves as a benchmark to implement best practices related to social media; technology; diversity, equity and inclusion; and barriers to learning that educators could utilize to enhance their aptitude and ability in the classroom or other clinical setting.
