We are pleased to announce a Faculty-wide call for applications for the Class of Medicine 1970 Educational Award for Teaching Excellence and Innovation, as outlined below. Applications are due by May 4, 2018, for funds to be awarded in September 2018.
This award was created in order to contribute to scholarship and educational excellence in the Faculty of Medicine through innovation and the support of effective methods of teaching and learning.
This award is designed to support a faculty member who wishes to learn and/or further develop a skill which can be directly applied to the education of McGill medical students and residents. This award may also be used to support the training of an outstanding young individual, such as a fellow or junior faculty member, who has demonstrated a particular aptitude and interest in the scholarship of teaching. The subject of study may be new teaching methods to be used in the classroom, simulation laboratory or clinical setting, all of which have the potential to enhance the medical school experience. The award will be in the amount of $7,000. The support could be applied to professional development or to securing protected time from clinical responsibilities.
The deadline for applications will be May 4, 2018, for funds to be awarded in September 2018.
To apply, please submit: (1) a copy of your CV; (2) a one-page description of your future plans in medical education; (3) a one-page description of what type of training/skill development you would like to pursue – and how this experience and your expertise will help to promote innovation and excellence in medical education at McGill; and (4) a proposed budget.
The support could be applied to professional development or to securing protected time from clinical responsibilities. At the end of the year, you will be expected to provide a one-page summary of what you were able to achieve as a result of this award.
