This session was a preconference which presented innovative, theory-based teaching activities as well as a plan for goal setting for personal faculty development. The presentation was designed to teach about “whole person” teaching, and consisted of using experiential learning, inspiring feedback methods, and effective body language and gestures to convey the “educational message.” The preconference (1) focused on evidence based teaching and learning theories (2) provided opportunities for participants to practice teaching techniques based on such theories, and (3) provided tools to help them set short term and long-term teaching and career development goals. Participants completed a pre-test and a post-test to assess their baseline and their learning. At the end of the preconference, they set goals in order to promote continuity in their learning experience. The goals were meant to focus on using select educational theories, making a commitment to their own faculty development and a clarifying how this would help them build career paths.
