wake-up-we-need-to-talk-about-teacher-identity

This webinar is brought to you by AMEE Faculty Development Committee

Presenter: Professor Peter Cantillon, National University of Ireland
Date: 26 November 2019
Time: 14:00 GMT

Summary:  Identity is not just important in terms of who we think we are, it also defines what we do. The scholarship of teacher identity in the health professions is small compared to the vast literature on professional identity formation, yet teacher identity is a vital consideration for faculty developers and for anyone looking to develop as a teacher. This webinar will reveal what is known about teacher identity in the health professions and will focus in particular on the contingent nature of teacher identity in academic and clinical workplaces. The webinar will cover frameworks for thinking about identity and will offer solutions for shoring up teacher identity in academic and clinical workplaces.

Aim: Teacher identity defines how we think of ourselves and how we act as teachers. Yet, teacher identity is usually positioned as subordinate to clinician and researcher identities in academic and clinical workplaces.  Does this matter? If so, what can we do about it?
