Effective teaching skills - London

This Effective teaching skills workshop helps doctors improve the ways in which they approach, design and deliver teaching sessions in a range of different contexts.

What you will learn

Teaching skills can be improved by developing key aspects of your practice, including preparation, choosing appropriate teaching methods, and utilising appropriate assessment. These and other aspects of effective teaching practice will be explored theoretically and practically on this 2-day workshop, which will also include tips on how to deal with difficult learners.

The workshop was a very good eye opener in teaching for someone with a medical background. An absolutely enlightening and pleasurable 2 days - Very motivational.
