Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones is our foundational program at the CFD, supporting health professionals in their education roles and activities including teaching, education scholarship, advocacy and academic leadership.

No events to show


Stepping Stones is a two year program consisting of both workshops and a journal club. Program goals are:
  • to promote growth and development of individuals in relation to their educational roles, and
  • to provide opportunities for educational networking and collaboration across caring and learning environments.
Workshops are offered on a variety of topics related to the roles Stepping Stones supports – teacher, educator, academic leader, scholar and advocate. Examples of topics include: workplace based assessment, learning theories, curriculum development, mentorship, evaluation, equity and wellness. Stepping Stones follows a flexible, adaptive curriculum and participants choose to attend workshops that meet their needs and interests.
Journal club takes place once a month during Year 1 of the program. Journal club facilitates the integration of workshop content, the broader health professions education literature, and participants’ own education practice.
