Participating in the MScPT Teaching and Learning Environment – May 7, 2019

As described in our introduction to the renewed curriculum, our teaching and learning philosophy is a key element of our curriculum vision. In this 18-minute online presentation, we provide an overview of what our teaching and learning philosophy is and how it intersects with instruction across the MScPT program, from clinics to classrooms. Throughout the presentation, we use concrete examples to articulate how instructors can actively participate in the teaching and learning environment by focussing on one or more of five key areas. These five areas are modeling educational values, using a common language to talk about teaching and learning, providing room for students to grow, pairing support for students alongside challenges, and making use of diverse and authentic teaching strategies. We hope that the ideas provided here will inspire you to put some of the principles of the renewed curriculum into action in your teaching context!
