Real-world Readiness: Integrating Professionalism into Curriculum
Schedule: Wednesday, August 14, 2019, 01:00 PM – 04:00 PM
Location: Medical Education Building, Room 3102
Instructors: Meaghen Quinn , Erica Stevens Abbitt, Christie Stewart
We want our students to succeed beyond the walls of academia. Teaching students “professional” or soft skills that transfer into a workplace is as equally important to their success as disciplinary knowledge. How can we ensure that students are taught these essential skills? In this participatory workshop, we will engage in examining the various professional skills that apply across disciplines, such as integrity, communication, and teamwork; hear examples of how they can be incorporated into course and program curriculum, and discuss strategies you can adopt to ensure your graduates are meeting these expectations. You will hear from someone who has bridged their work between academia and a workplace environment and leave with a set of resources you can use in developing your courses or programs.
