Presented by: Cha-Chi Fung, PhD, Keck School of Medicine of USC
Location: T-229, Pacific Room, UW Health Sciences Library, Seattle
Description: The validation of any assessment tool requires the developer to establish a robust rater training protocol. In this workshop, participants will use the instructor’s own “rater training module” as an example to practice designing a faculty development curriculum in a topic of their own interest.
Objectives: By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Develop goals and objectives for the curriculum that will address the specific problem area.
2. Identify educational strategies by which the curricular objectives will be achieved.
3. Develop a plan for curriculum implementation
4. Establish a plan for evaluating whether the curricular goals and objectives were met.
Target Audience: Educators in in the Health Professions
