5 High-Impact Teaching Practices in the Healthcare Context


Thursday, February 8
12 – 1 p.m. (Lunch will be available at 11:30 a.m.)


School of Medicine, B Instructional Building, Room 115

If we want our teaching to have a major impact on health science student learning, what are some ideas that can help us do that?

Since 1990, scholars of teaching and learning have been generating new ideas every year about college-level teaching. All of these ideas are good, but which ones have the most potential to have a high impact on student engagement and student learning?

In this presentation, Dr. Fink will offer his list of five high-impact teaching practices for the healthcare context. Implementing any one of these can improve almost anyone’s teaching in the classroom, at the bedside, or in the clinic.

Presenter: Dee Fink, Ph.D.Presenter: Dee Fink, Ph.D., nationally recognized expert on various aspects of college teaching, former president of the Professional and Organizational Development (POD) Network in Higher Education

Sponsored by the HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership

About the HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership

Established in June 2011, the HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership seeks to:

  • Enhance teaching and learning on UofL's Health Sciences Campus by providing meaningful and relevant professional development opportunities for faculty;
  • Share unit resources to promote campus-wide conversations about best practices in teaching and learning in the health sciences; and
  • Address accreditation calls for continuous quality improvement to the curriculum by offering participants concrete teaching strategies and "take-aways" for immediate implementation and relevant resources to foster further exploration and learning.

The partnership steering committee is comprised of unit representatives from Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, the School of Public Health and Information Sciences (SPHIS), and the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning. With support from the deans of each school, the steering committee works together to deliver two significant professional development programs for HSC faculty annually.
