About This Course
Objective of the course: To help teachers transform lectures into more effective learning interventions.
Being an expert in a clinical or a surgical topic does not translate into being a good teacher. To become a good teacher we need a theoretical framework that will help us understand and apply teaching principles and strategies to teach.
Traditional lectures have ranked very low when measuring their effectiveness.
This course will help you deliver your presentations effectively.
