Teaching and Learning in the Clinical Context (TLC) is a 12-week virtual program with both self-paced, self-directed eLearning modules as well as facilitated group learning sessions.

The goals of the program are for participants to:

  • Develop the foundational knowledge and skills needed to teach in the clinical context
  • Recognize how to be adaptive clinical teachers, responsive to unique contextual and learner needs. 

The TLC program is an interactive, module-based longitudinal program. The program is practical and evidence-informed, enabling clinicians to successfully teach and prepare our learners for the current and future health care climate. 

Topics Covered in the Modules Include (but are not limited to):

  • Identity as a clinical teacher
  • The teaching and learning environment
  • Power and the teacher-learner partnership
  • Identifying learner needs and setting expectations
  • Educational approaches
  • Cultivating an optimal feedback culture
  • The learner in difficulty
  • Learner mistreatment

The curriculum is underpinned by a health equity lens. The program is also anchored by the locally developed Faculty Developer Competence Model.
