On-the-job teaching - Liverpool

This 1-day 'On-the-job teaching' workshop is for doctors who wish to integrate teaching and learning into their everyday service, combining ward rounds, on-take and outpatient teaching with patient care.

Finding the time and opportunity to teach effectively can be difficult within a busy hospital environment. This 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, describing main theories and methods used to implement teaching. Probably the most useful and relevant course around as most teaching opportunities take place “on the job”!

I enjoyed the day and learned a lot. Will definitely try some of the methods discussed when on the ward and in clinic tomorrow!
