Increasing attention is being paid to challenges in the learning environment. These include mistreatment, burnout, and professional failures. One factor contributing to these challenges is the hidden curriculum. The messages of the formal curriculum are often undermined by values and norms communicated to our learners (Mahood, 2011). These often implicit and tacit norms, attitudes, and values embedded in our educational structures, practices and culture are referred to as the hidden curriculum (Hafferty et al., 2015). Participants will explore ways in which they may address the hidden curriculum and assist their learners in identifying and responding to the hidden curriculum.
