- Are you passionate about teaching in health and social care?
- Do you want to fine tune your teaching practice?
- Would you like to introduce innovations in your approach to learning?
Teach with CARE is a four-day course combining online and in person teaching spread over several weeks.
The course considers different perspectives of adult learning and pedagogy.
The sessions introduce best practice techniques including planning; presenting; resourcing; questioning; assessing and evaluating teaching across the four days.
Learners will also look at online educational tools for effective teaching as well as evaluating best practice for face-to-face and online teaching. They will have the opportunity to plan and share a short teaching session and receive supportive feedback.
“Teach with CARE has been developed to secure quality end of life education for the future. Learners will develop teaching skills that are reflective of best practice, in keeping with St Christopher’s ambitions for education. Through Teach with CARE we aim to secure a future of palliative and end of life care education, that has a real impact on learners and people at this crucial phase of life.”
Maaike Vandeweghe, Head of Professional Programmes of Learning & CARE Co-Lead
“I really enjoyed the four days. I think that Teach with CARE should be mandatory for all (teaching colleagues), no matter how long they have been teaching. It gives everyone a platform from which they can be launched and a sense of what is expected of them.”
