Why do I need a teaching toolkit?
In today’s NHS the busy clinician educator needs to be flexible and have a range of educational tools to use depending on the situation. They need to be able to move easily between medical student bedside teaching on a wriggly toddler, to giving their first national conference presentation, to ‘teaching’ patients in clinic. This interactive session will cover the basics of educational theory, then explore active learning techniques. We will also share some presenting ‘top tips’. By the end of the session attendees should have some new teaching tools to try out and a better understanding of how to develop as educators.
