"Who watches the watchmen?"
-Juvenal

"We teach what we like to learn and the reason many people go into teaching is vicariously to re-experience
the primary joy experienced the first time they learned something they love.

Dr. Stephen Brookfield


Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, there is also a love for Humanity
- Hippocrates

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”
William Arthur Ward

"A poor surgeon hurts 1 person at a time. A poor teacher hurts 130."

Introduction

New teachers are often unsure about their place in the grand mechanism of medical school. Some of you come to this role after participating in life changing educational experiences, others arrive at this point bored and frustrated, most of you are somewhere in between. I believe teachers help people learn. In a world before easy access to information online or in books, that meant being the transmitter of knowledge through lectures. Today, lectures are only one of a multitude of teaching techniques that you can use to help people learn. By participating in this course, you will begin to built your personal teaching tool kit.
