Who should attend

There is increasing recognition of the knowledge, skills and attitudes that contribute to quality in teaching and of the need for formal training in the area. The ESME courses are aimed at practising teachers in medicine and the healthcare professions, both basic scientists and clinicians. They are aimed at those new to teaching and at teachers with years of experience who would like a greater understanding of the basic principles and an update on current best practice. The courses recognise that, with appropriate help, all, even those with considerable experience, can improve their skills in teaching.

Participant Comment

'The ESME course is the first course that has stimulated me to doing something substantive with my own education on medical education. The statement, “a good teacher is better than a good program” was what struck me most. In short, the good teacher will take into account the aspects of designing a teaching or learning activity as being outcome-based, considering how to design the curriculum, how learners learn and how teachers should teach, and evaluation of the learner’s assimilation of the material based on the desired outcome, as well as the effectiveness of one’s teaching program. In my own previous teaching endeavours, it was mainly teacher-centred and information driven. I now consciously attempt to make it more learner-centred and problem-based. The ESME method is indeed a useful tool for developing a good teaching program which can be adapted to many teaching situations.'
