The MD Program offers this faculty development opportunity in conjunction with the Program for Faculty Development.
This 3.5 hour workshop is required preparation for faculty members who aspire to tutor in the MD Program. It is offered to interested participants before they begin to tutor and includes an opportunity to observe an actual tutorial in progress (arranged at a mutually agreeable time).

The MacEssentials workshop is offered twice each year, typically in January and June.
Other opportunities and resources are available for faculty or trainees from the rest of the Faculty of Health Sciences (e.g. the School of Nursing, School of Rehabilitation Sciences) are available throughout this website.
At the end of this workshop, participants will:
Explain PBL as a philosophy and a method.
Define the active learning components of a student-centered PBL tutorial.
Explain the group facilitation skills necessary to create effective group process.
Describe the components that contribute to tutorial assessment in the MD program.
