The Innovations in Teaching and Learning certificate prepares participants for advanced practice in clinical, simulation, and classroom education. The certificate adopts a blended approach of both online and face-to-face learning experiences.
The first course focuses on foundational learning theory and evidence-based models. The second course explores development of self as educator, relational aspects of teaching and learning and teaching context.
Integrative seminars in the third course provide an opportunity to learn about specific teaching modalities and strategies such as simulation, signature pedagogies and updating traditional classrooms. In the final course, participants develop their own personal teaching philosophy and complete a demonstration teaching project.
