Onramps Lane 2: Teaching Effectively
To smooth faculty members’ entry to Lane 2, the Institute offers several opportunities to enhance teaching effectiveness. New faculty members are strongly encouraged to enroll in a semester-long course to familiarize them with theories of adult learning in health professions education. All faculty members are welcome to participate in any course free of charge.
To enroll in a credit-bearing course, please contact CIPSI Operations Manager, Yolanda Mendez Rainey.
Course Design Institute (CDI):
Sponsored by the Institute’s instructional designers, this three-day workshop guides faculty members through the process of designing or redesigning a course. The intensive format walks faculty members through building a course map, planning objectives, creating assignments, and planning for evaluation.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD):
These may take the form of online modules, short seminars, or multi-day courses and will result in continuing education credit. The first course is an afternoon workshop on mindfulness as a clinical preceptor. More courses are in development.

This three-credit course, offered fully online, is the first in a series that can lead to a certificate or master’s degree in health professions education. Participants apply foundational principles of adult learning to the processes of designing, developing, and implementing instruction.
HRS 950 Foundations of the Craft of Teaching:
