The Institute for Allied Health Educators (IAHE) is excited to announce an additional course, Revitalizing Curriculum and Faculty, to begin in October 2014. Topic sessions for this fall 2014 course include creating a flipped classroom, faculty calibration, curriculum design and management, faculty motivation and designing hybrid courses.

In addition to the new course, IAHE also offers several other courses: Teaching Foundations in Allied Health Education, Clinical Teaching Best Practices, and Advances in Educational Methods for Allied Health Educators. The Clinical Teaching Best Practices has been so overwhelmingly popular that the course is now being offered a second time, beginning in March.

The overall change to courses this year has been to add a synchronous (live) session to each course. As a result, each course has five synchronous sessions, including in a new topic for each course. For example, the Teaching Foundations in Allied Health Education course has added a session for faculty on Classroom Teaching Preparation and Presentation, where participants will learn new strategies for incorporating active learning into their courses to assist students in developing stronger critical thinking skills.

These courses award ADA CERP credit and may fulfill the Educational Teaching Methodology requirement for CODA Accreditation.
