Faculty Development

Faculty development programs and activities provided by the Department of Medical Education include workshops, seminars, and longitudinal programs. We also provide peer observation and feedback. In each of these activities, we use collaborative learning exercises and reflective practice to build the knowledge and skills that faculty need to be effective in their various teaching and educational roles.
The following pages provide more information about the Scholars for Teaching Excellence Faculty Fellowship, DME Certificate Programs, and the Teaching Skills Program for Residents.
For a consultation to discuss your faculty development needs, contact Janet Riddle (jriddle@uic.edu).

 

Scholars for Teaching Excellence Faculty Fellowship

The Scholars for Teaching Excellence Faculty Fellowship program is a collaborative approach for developing expertise among faculty in curriculum and instructional development, quality teaching, and education scholarship.
It is for faculty interested in on-going curricular and instructional improvement, and in developing themselves as education leaders.

Certificate Programs

DME offers short courses designed to meet the professional development needs of faculty and simulation educators, clinical education program directors, and clinical teachers. The certificate for these programs is not transcripted, so it does not provide university credits and does not provide any kind of “certification”.

Teaching Skills Program for Residents

The focus of the Teaching Skills Program for Residents is to improve the learning experiences of medical students. The workshops were developed by the Faculty Development section of the Department of Medical Education and are led by educators experienced in faculty development and instruction.
Attendance is mandatory for all PGY1 and PGY2 residents unless their training program offers an alternative approved teaching skills course.
