On-the-job teaching - Leicester

'On-the-job teaching' is a workshop for doctors who wish to integrate teaching and learning into their everyday service, combining ward rounds, on-take and outpatient teaching with patient care.

This 1-day workshop provides practical suggestions on how to maximise learning opportunities and become a more effective teacher. By identifying techniques for teaching knowledge, clinical skills and professional behaviour, we will examine how to successfully incorporate teaching sessions into all clinical commitments.

Very useful in describing main theories and methods used to implement teaching. Probably the most relevant course around as most teaching opportunities take place 'on the job'.
