Plans are ongoing to expand our Faculty of Clinical Educators (FACE) CPD programme, with a rolling schedule of medical education development events.
We have also been developing a system which will allow you to build up credits by attending these sessions and reflecting on your experiences at a time and pace that fits your busy working life. These credits can then be put towards a qualification for you to take away.
With a mixture of daytime and evening sessions there should be something to suit everyone’s rota. Each event is mapped to GMC, AoME and AdvanceHE (formerly HEA) guidance for educators, to help you develop your portfolio of evidence, whether for appraisal, revalidation or simply the joy of learning!
Future topics include teaching techniques, learning theory, experiential learning and educator development.
Given the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, and in line with University of Liverpool guidance, from March 2020 we are putting our CPD programme temporarily on hold. Wherever possible, we will work to offer events online and will provide details over the coming months.
31.01.20 | FACE CPD Assessment event
The first in a series of events designed to focus on the pedagogy and practicality of running high quality educational assessment.
Whilst an introductory event, a lot of ground was covered, and much of it at an advanced level – looking at myths and misconceptions within assessment, theory and good practice – with some future gazing about where assessment of the future might be going.
Thanks to colleagues across primary, secondary and community care setting for brings ideas, expertise and a willingness to challenge – very much a demonstration that assessment can be fun!
We look forward to seeing you at future related events – looking at assessment of knowledge, clinical performance and actionable feedback.
