March Maple, Medical Education and More: Spring Faculty Development Half Day

After a successful Winter Faculty Development Half Day on Dec 6 2017 attended by two dozen faculty, we are continuing this format with our spring faculty development half day (right before the March break). 

Note that all sessions are useful as ‘stand alone’ sessions, but some are part of ongoing longitudinal series. If you didn’t attend part one in December, don’t despair! We will be offering online options for people who didn’t attend to download the content, and have interactive videos and other resources. These will be available by mid February with more details to follow.
