The CUIMC Summer Institute for Teaching and Learning is a two-day in-person institute devoted to exploring effective teaching and learning strategies in health sciences education. While introducing the Understanding by Design framework, the institute aims to provide faculty with a practical approach for (re)designing courses and course units. Since its inception in 2007, the CUIMC Summer Institute has grown to become one of CUIMC’s highly-anticipated professional development events. Our facilitators are experienced CUIMC faculty and faculty developers from the Medical Center.
The CUIMC Summer Institute is designed for faculty to (further) develop their skills as educators, learn about interactive teaching techniques, and collaborate with other faculty across the campus.
By the end of the Institute faculty participants will be able to:
- Apply Backward Design to their own teaching context
- Describe teaching principles applicable to different teaching contexts
- Apply principles towards developing an anti-racist and inclusive learning environment
The Summer Institute for Teaching and Learning is facilitated by members of CUIMC’s teaching community and is sponsored by Anna Maxwell Teaching Academy; Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning; Diamond Teaching Academy; Mailman School of Public Health Teaching Academy; the Office of Academic Affairs at the College of Physicians and Surgeons; and the Virginia Apgar Academy of Medical Educators.
The CTL is here for faculty.
The Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning provides an array of support for faculty in both their work and their professional development.
