Office of Educational Affairs (OEA) Teaching Scholars Seminar
Tufts University teaching faculty are eligible to apply to participate in the OEA/CELT Teaching Scholars Program to be held at Tufts University School of Medicine Campus. Up to 12 teaching faculty members will be enrolled. The program will consist of four 2 and a half hour sessions. The topic areas of discussion will be learner-centered teaching, active learning, peer observation of teaching with collegial feedback, and participant’s own teaching practices. Participants will have an opportunity to share an aspect/topic/event of their teaching practices they would like to discuss with their peers and receive feedback on, using the step-back consultation approach. Sessions include: Educational Planning: Thinking Like a Teacher, Observing Peer’s Teaching, Promoting Learner-Centered Teaching through Active Learning, Providing and Receiving Constructive Feedback with Peers and Learners, and Step-back Consultations on Participant’s Individual Teaching Practices.
