Teach the Teacher Online Course Overview
Every year we train over 2,000 doctors on our renowned 2-day Teach the Teacher Course for Doctors. We’ve used our experience to develop this popular online course. It gives you an excellent learning experience whether you use it as a stand-alone activity or as a supplement to the 2-day course. We guide you through the process of designing, delivering and evaluating the plan for a training activity.
What’s the format?
The course is split into 14 short modules meaning you can access and complete each stage when you have time available. You can choose to do it all in one intensive session. Alternatively you may prefer to work in short bursts over a number of days or even weeks. This could be during your breaks or even on the move. Once subscribed, the course index advises you how long each section is likely to take to complete. It also indicates where you will be required to spend a little time on offline to develop a training plan of your own as part of the process. This training plan may be for a real teaching activity that you expect to deliver – or it could be fictitious. It’s entirely up to you.
The entire course is likely to take you between 3 and 3.5 hours, including the offline tasks. However, you are free spend as long as you wish, re-watching the videos, revisiting sections or spending longer on developing your planning exercise in detail. Your subscription gives you 120 days of unlimited access the materials. So you can choose the approach that works best for your situation and requirements.
At the end of the course we ask you to complete a reflective learning statement. When you submit this to us, we send you a certificate of completion which is accredited for 3 CPD points. We forward our certificate within 10 working days of receiving your reflective learning statement. If you require your certificate more urgently for any reason then please contact us and we will make appropriate arrangements for you.
