Some people have natural traits that lean them towards teaching, others want to give something back to the profession but lack the ability or knowledge to do it efficiently and effectively. You may have been teaching in practice for years or just starting your first mentoring position, whatever your experience level this course will have something for you.
Without delving into the theory too deeply, we will look at some of the basic principles of teaching & learning. Having some knowledge of learning styles and applying basic techniques will improve your students ability to learn.
For instance, do you know the difference between training, teaching and coaching? How do you motivate a reluctant student? Do you teach reflective practice? The answers to these and other questions can be found in this course.
Also you will have your coursework assessed by a highly experienced veterinary educator. This will give you a lesson plan that you can take back into your workplace and use straight away and hopefully see the difference that using a few key techniques has!
