Faculty Development Journal Club

Faculty Development Journal Club
The session will focus on how faculty development takes place informally within health professions educators’ everyday work in a university context, using situated cognition as a theoretical lens. The session will commence with a review of the article by Dr Megan Anakin followed by a response from Dr Koshila Kumar and Dr Svetlana King, two of the paper’s authors. The authors will then facilitate breakout discussions about what conditions are needed for faculty development to occur informally.

 Thursday Oct 20th, 2022 from 00.30am to 01.30am UK time (GMT+1)

Who is presenting? Dr Megan Anakin (Host and Reviewer); Dr Koshila Kumar (author); Dr Svetlana King (author).
Who should attend? Anyone with a passion for and/or interest in Faculty Development

Theme: We will explore the area of developing a teacher identity in the university or hospital context which is not a smooth process given that teachers often struggle with many pressures related to teaching, clinical duties and research. How can we as faculty developers empower teachers to develop a teacher identity aimed at professional growth of teachers?
