Overview

How can I teach more interactively? What is the best way to use visual aids? Why should I vary my teaching method? How should I prepare for a lecture? When should I use a simulator?

Good teaching skills are essential for passing on knowledge so that it will be retained and practised for a lifetime. Thus being able to teach well is vital to patient care. This book is written for the busy clinician to help improve their teaching and pass their skills and learning on to others in the most effective way. The text covers every aspect of teaching, from lesson planning and how to use resources, to evaluating teaching and dealing with difficult situations. A combination of practical advice, step-by-step instructions and sample lesson plans will help and inspire the reader to become the best teacher possible.

The text is also written for those who teach others to teach; for those running a course for their department, or running official teacher training courses. The Notes for Trainers section within each chapter gives specific guidance, helpful tips and sample lesson plans to help you run a new course.

The authors share their extensive range of clinical and teaching experience in this highly readable book.
