8:30 AM - 5:30 PM
Location: Roberts - Chattanoogan Hotel
This full day workshop is geared toward PTs who are have or will be teaching pediatric content in a DPT program. Topics will cover curriculum design and models for teaching pediatric content, integration of the Pediatric Core Competencies across curricula or within standalone courses, strategies for organizing courses, active learning opportunities, clinical reasoning, and assessment of student outcomes. Participants will develop a plan for evaluating their course content and delivery methods, meet others who are teaching pediatric content to create a community of teachers/learners, and receive resources relevant to teaching pediatrics. Some pre-reading and course review is expected to maximize participant outcomes. This course may be most helpful to those teaching 5 years or less.
- Discuss how the participant’s course fits within the overall professional PT curriculum design, and utilization of the Pediatric Core Competencies within entry-level pediatric physical therapy education, to guide course specific curricular decisions.
- Apply enhanced teaching and learning strategies relevant to participant’s course structure, including syllabus development, lesson planning for lab sessions and active learning, assessment strategies, and integration of clinical reasoning and experiential learning opportunities.
- Identify and utilize teaching and learning resources provided through the APPT and other repositories for professional development.
