Participant Testimonials

As a busy clinician, the MITE CTC was an excellent opportunity to develop teaching skills at my own pace. Another plus of the program was the chance to interact with experienced teachers through the Canvas platform. I got many valuable tips through feedback from faculty. Some of the skills obtained have been useful to guide me in developing heart failure curricula for our Cardiology Fellows and APPs. The course also stimulated me to start my teaching portfolio, think about my teaching philosophy and encouraged me to keep records in anticipation for seeking academic promotion in 4 years. The reflective assignments were my favorite exercises as they made me self-assess components of my previous teaching experience and how I could evolve. This course has stimulated me to look at a Masters in Health Education with similar asynchronous methodology.

Honestly, I don’t like it…. I LOVE IT! The content is great, and being able to do these on my own schedule has been excellent. Also, the assignments are obviously what one makes of them, but I have found them to be thought provoking and useful in evaluating my own teaching techniques. I’ve already used some of the suggestions in the time efficient learning module, and will implement some of the small group teaching ideas I came up with during those exercises.
