From solar to lunar clinical teaching- Putting the learner at the heart of teaching
Prof Subha Ramani (Boston, USA)

Dear Colleagues ,

I’m delighted to confirm Prof Subha Ramani from Brigham’s Women’s Hospital Boston has agreed to be our guest speaker.  I cannot emphasise enough that her talk will be worth watching.


Title: From solar to lunar clinical teaching- Putting the learner at the heart of teaching

Summary: In this session, we will focus on the learning triad, consisting of the learner, teacher and content. In clinical settings, content is replaced by patient. The tradition in medical education has placed teachers at the centre of the learning triad and faculty development has often focused on teacher skills in conducting large group, small group, bedside teaching etc. As educators increasingly emphasize learner-centred education, it may not always be apparent to clinical teachers what this entails. This session will view the teaching triad as a solar or lunar model; distinguish learner-centred from learner-engaged teaching;  challenge assumptions about traditionally emphasized teaching skills in medical education; pose arguments that teachers’ strategies are only effective if they impact learner performance and propose co-creation of education as the direction of the future.
