Now that educational programs are expected to address the six general competencies, faculty must begin to think about the teaching and assessment methods they use. Faculty need to learn to use program-wide performance data to inform curricular change. Participants will spend the afternoon discussing their current teaching and assessment methods, implementation strategies and challenges. For each competency several best practices will be identified and shared.

At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

Examine their program’s evaluation system in light of others’ experiences.
Identify best teaching and assessment practices and understand what has led to their success.
Consider the steps necessary to prepare your program for a site visit.
Identify effective methods for teaching that target the competency areas.
Set personal goals for applying the skills learned in this workshop to one's own practice setting, and review a tool designed to assess performance of new teaching skills.
