  • Interim Assistant Dean, Curriculum, of the UBC Faculty of Medicine offers faculty development workshop

    Jul 27, 2017 | Posted by: Rhys Mahannah

    On June 12, Dr. Cheryl Holmes, the Interim Assistant Dean, Curriculum, for the UBC MD Undergraduate Program, visited the Island Medical Program to give a faculty development workshop.

    Fifteen IMP faculty took part in the workshop, called “Exploring the Hidden Curriculum – We Are Teaching Far More Than We Know,” which explored how a teacher’s behaviors, beliefs, and attitudes all shape a student’s learning experience.

    Earlier that day, Holmes met with IMP administrators to discuss the MD Undergraduate Program’s curriculum; talked with students about their learning experiences; then joined Kurt McBurney, Assistant Teaching Professor, for a tour of UVic’s Medical Sciences Building.
