Faculty Development Council

Home

Faculty development program (FDP) has been designed to organically deal with the rapid changes in medical education and cope with the paradigm shifts of health care delivery system and clinical practice. Ongoing continued training is helping teachers improve their teaching skills, design improved curricula, and enhance the organizational climate for education and plan collaborative educational research. It is time to shift the philosophy about faculty development and to embrace a broader view from one-time training to ongoing professional development and from classroom to workplace activities.

Vision

  • Instructional development – curriculum development for teaching, diagnosis and training. Focus on improving teaching by developing new pedagogical skills or integrating innovative technologies into teaching through the development of new essential courses of study.
  • Personal development – encouraging personal growth (interpersonal skills training and career counselling)
  • Organizational development – advancing institutional environment for teaching and decision making and included activities for both faculty members and administrative staff. Focus on developing managerial skills and team work attitudes.

Mission

  • Change attitudes toward teaching and faculty development
  • Gain knowledge and skills
  • Change teaching behaviour
  • Change organizational practice and student learning

Scope

  • Accountability – Demonstrate greater accountability among faculty members
  • Effective faculty support to students with diverse learning needs in developing curricula and teaching strategies appropriate for a wide range of learning environments based on age, aspirations, cultural, and academic backgrounds
  • Opportunities and challenges of technology – Technologies offer many opportunities to enhance learning processes with information, simulations, and engaging learning activities. Faculty members must have the knowledge and skills to take advantage of these advances in their teaching and curriculum planning
  • Changes in faculty characteristics – Integrating new faculty members into the institution’s community and culture, and at the same time, ensuring the quality of their skills and abilities.
