A Faculty Development Program Designed for Transformation of Teaching Perspectives
MetadataShow full item record
This project presents an educational context in which previous faculty development had failed to lead to consistent use of learner-focused teaching practices. I chose to explore the literature in transformative learning theory and professional development in higher education in order to inform the design of a longitudinal faculty development program that would result in a transformation of teaching perspectives amongst participant medical faculty and the cultivation of a community of practice with a focus on education. After a review of the relevant literature, this project will describe the curriculum for the program, detailing the rationale for the choices made in its development. Finally, I will propose a plan to evaluate the program in order to demonstrate a change in teaching perspective that is exhibited by a change in teaching practices.
