Faculty development initiative

The Center for Teaching and Learning has launched an interdisciplinary Health Professions Faculty Development Initiative. It will provide year-round opportunities for those in the health professions to learn from their colleagues about best practices and innovative approaches to health instruction across a range of related colleges, schools and programs at UGA.

To kick off the new initiative, Todd Zakrajsek from the Department of Family Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will be on campus Aug. 31. His 2 p.m. presentation in 201 Pharmacy South, “Learning-Centered Teaching: Coordinating Evidence-based Teaching With Evidence-based Learning,” is designed for clinician educators.
