Title Creating Effective, Inclusive, and Safe Spaces: Strategies for Faculty Development in the Undergraduate Medical Education Setting
Rationale/Background Now more than ever, it is important that as medical educators we create effective, inclusive, anti-oppressive, and psychologically safe1 teaching, learning, and clinical environments2. Excellence through equity, diversity, inclusion, indigeneity and accessibility (EDIIA) are key priorities for many Faculties of Medicine across the country. The challenge lies in how we practically do this, particularly when leaders and faculty developers may not be experts in anti-oppressive education. During this workshop we will describe our approach to faculty development in an undergraduate medical education setting to supporting faculty in practically implementing pedagogical and EDIIA strategies to optimize their teaching and learning spaces.
Instructional Methods • Didactic presentation: Brief overview of the literature and examples of faculty development strategies around optimizing the learning environment • Small group: Case-based discussion on how to practically implement these strategies
