The Teaching and Learning Resources Work Group, a subdivision of the Medical Education Community of Practice, is comprised of leading ID educators from across the country who want to share their passion for teaching. We are continually striving to innovate to address the changing needs of learners and the educational environment. Our mission is to develop and curate material to support the IDSA community to be better teachers, as well as resources for ID Clinician Educators to enhance their skills in Medical Education.
SOCIAL JUSTICE IN MEDICAL EDUCATION
Social Justice in Medical Education is the concept that there should be equity in access, experiences, assessment, and opportunities for trainees in the health professions, with the goal of eliminating social, demographic, and economic disparities. The resources highlighted here include tools for ID educators to better understand and mitigate bias in recruitment and assessment. These can also serve as a starting point for the development of comprehensive curricula or other diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.
TECH TOOLS FOR TEACHING
In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, educators have had to adapt course materials, didactic sessions, and assessments to the virtual environment. The resources highlighted here include platforms for virtual teaching and learning, as well as tools to enhance learner engagement/participation in the virtual environment and create teaching aids and course materials for asynchronous learning.
