The Teaching and Learning Curriculum (TLC) is embedded in all of the college's residency and fellowship programs. It is delivered through mini-seminars, applied activities, and formative assessments throughout the year. Didactic teaching is evaluated by both content and delivery experts through use of standardized evaluation forms; both written and verbal feedback are provided to the resident. The goal of the TLC is to provide opportunities for the residents/fellows to gain the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to be effective teachers. Residents/fellows are required to submit a teaching portfolio as part of the TLC and will ultimately earn a TLC certificate of completion if they meet attendance, and complete or satisfy project and participation standards.
Specific units in the TLC include:
- The New Science of Learning
- Understanding the Curriculum
- Developing Learning Objectives
- Didactic Teaching and Learning
- Applied Teaching and Learning
- Selection-type Items
- Supply-type items and Rubrics
- Experiential Teaching and Learning
- Evaluating Experiential Learning & Managing Conflict
- Preparing and Delivering High Quality CE Presentations
- Academic Culture
- Accreditation and Affiliation Agreements
- Course Development and Course Directing
- Quarterly Educational Journal Clubs
Teaching and Learning Activities
Residents/fellows implement what they have learned from the TLC program by teaching in the classroom and in the clinical setting. Residents/fellows provide instruction in small group workshops and large group didactic settings (i.e., lectures). Residents/fellows serve as preceptors for an Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience rotation in which residents/fellows precept one group of students for one day per week for 10 weeks. Later in the postgraduate training program, residents/fellows serve as a preceptor or co-preceptor for 1-2 students on an Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (i.e., clerkship rotation).
