To the best of my knowledge this program is unique, very suitable to hospitals and doctors, and easily learned. The program is unique in its generic approach to learning to teach. It may be used by any medical educator, it can be quickly learnt, (and) it is applicable to all levels for student teaching. It is an excellent practical method of learning how to teach without cluttered jargon and theory.

Teaching on the Run provides quality workshops on teaching and supervision for clinicians.

Good clinical teaching and supervision is an essential part of the training of junior doctors. Doctors have usually not been trained in how to teach and supervise, but are expected to carry out these tasks, while working on the run.

Since 2001, Teaching on the Run has been delivered to more than 1000 clinicians and medical educators around Australia. Research from our workshops clearly shows that their confidence to teach and supervise effectively has increased significantly.

Workshops are designed for 12-16 participants and run for 2-3 hours. Each workshop uses a variety of small group teaching techniques including discussion, video presentation, small group work and reflection.

The workshops are:

The program, initially established for hospital-based clinicians supervising junior doctors, has now been extended to other health professionals including nursing and midwifery, allied health and veterinary science. Evaluation of the program has been excellent, with participants noting the program is relevant, enjoyable and improves confidence and skills.

  • The workshops are available to your group to implement, through collaboration with the TELL Centre.

This training has been rolled out around Australia and workshops are run in urban and rural areas.
