The Office of Faculty provides online training assistance for faculty staff and students.
Talk Review and Feedback Consolation- If you are presenting at a conference or leading a presentation for your colleagues, make sure you and your slides are ready before you present! We provide a reviewer to observe you while you present a "dry run" in a low-stress environment. The reviewer will provide feedback on slide design and presentation style.
Teaching Observation and Feedback- An outside observer can see things you may not know and has no ulterior motive in providing feedback other than to help you. An educational specialist can sit in on your class, PBL, or other teaching session and meet with you privately to provide feedback. The Office of Faculty.

"This course series helped me learn some life-long skills on how to become a better academic clinician, from creating learning outcomes to providing appropriate feedback. Each course was tailored to fit my needs and deficiencies as an academic physician. After completing the course series, I feel more confident when it comes to teaching my residents whether in lecture or by the bedside."
