I appreciate TEACH providing a venue in which those who love to teach can sharpen their skills and learn from others so like-minded. I appreciate the varied educational offerings such as teaching didactics and future journal clubs. I value the camaraderie with such a diverse group of talented teachers.
I see TEACH as a way of meeting other talented and like-minded people outside of my usual work environment. Fresh perspectives on how to best educate medical learners is invigorating.
TEACH is an incredibly valuable platform for health professions faculty members who have a primary interest in teaching and education scholarship. I greatly enjoy the opportunity to participate in a built in peer group dedicated to our collective teaching mission across our participating institutions. TEACH serves as a friendly “sounding board” for ideas and methods related to all aspects of teaching, and the encouragement and advice I receive from such a group makes my work even more meaningful. Come join us!
Being a part of TEACH provides an opportunity for networking and learning with colleagues from a variety of departments and services across our healthcare system. The focus of this initiative is to help us become excellent educators. TEACH provides the infrastructure that is needed to support the best educational practices and serves as a platform to foster an inter-professional culture of learning. The ultimate benefactors of this effort will be our patients and our community.
TEACH allows us to become better at what we are already doing, as well as allowing us to learn from those we are teaching.
