In this course, you will explore the philosophy and practice of education to become an expert educator in the healthcare professions.
You will identify and apply the fundamentals of education to the healthcare professions. You will use the latest evidence around self-regulated learning to explore the psychology of motivation, and consider the sociological aspects of teaching in small groups.
By connecting to a global network of multi-professional educators in healthcare, you will gain new perspectives on your teaching and values as a teacher, and be encouraged to share your teaching experiences with others. You will also be empowered to begin making evidence-based improvements to your teaching in the future.
