TLC Orientation Day Draws Interprofessional Crowd
On Tuesday, October 11, a day of workshops brought over 100 faculty, staff, students, and others to the Teaching and Learning Center on the Kalmanovitz Library's second floor. Attendees learned about clinical teaching using the Kanbar Center's simulators and standardized patients, and about the many learning technologies and techniques supported in the TLC classrooms.
All UCSF schools were represented among the attendees, as well as postdocs, residents, and clinicians from multiple sites. As an added highlight, UCSF's Telemedicine team was able to demonstrate capabilities for transmitting video and audio between multiple clinical and teaching sites in San Francisco and even Eureka, CA.
Since opening in January 2011, the Kanbar Center has been booked over 4,700 hours, and the classrooms have been used for over 4,000 hours of instruction. Students are using the Tech Commons in large numbers and taking advantage of the multimedia workstations for course projects.
