This book will be an essential read for all new teachers or trainers in medicine and the healthcare professions, while encouraging the more experienced teacher to review their educational responsibilities. It looks at teaching from the perspective of the functions or roles of a teacher. While aiming to maintain both brevity and clarity it adopts a personal style and approach in order to provide a flavour of what it means to be a teacher. The authors describe the eight key roles for the teacher or trainer. For maximum effectiveness and job satisfaction it is important for every teacher to establish their roles in an education programme and to know how to contribute most effectively. This book is written to assist with these goals. All teachers should have an understanding of the eight roles but cannot be expected to be an expert in all of them. A consideration of these roles illuminates what is expected of a teacher and illustrates how to maximise potential. All the chapters contain brief overviews, key take-home messages, a summary of the role responsibilities of all teachers, ‘expert’ teachers and ‘master’ teachers, and suggestions for consideration by the teacher as to their personal role. At the end of each chapter is a list of references of the topics addressed in the chapter. The text includes short narratives from 38 teachers around the world as well as personal anecdotes to provide an additional insight into the roles a teacher fulfils. This book explores the concept of excellence in teaching and describes how to aspire to quality or excellence in teaching through a better understanding of the functions and roles of a teacher. The book offers guidelines for the role of the teacher in the 21st Century in the context of developments such as technology-assisted learning, and increasing pressures from the public and the professions for effective and efficient education programmes. This book describes the eight important key roles for the teacher or trainer.

Essential Skills for a Medical Teacher is a perfect introduction for new teachers to the exciting opportunities facing them, whether they are working in undergraduate, postgraduate or continuing education. It will also be of considerable use to more experienced teachers to review and assess their own practice and gain a new perspective on how best to facilitate their students' or trainees' learning. The contents are based on the authors’ extensive experience of what works in medical education, whether in teaching and curriculum planning or in the organisation of faculty development courses in medical education at basic and advanced levels. The text provides hints drawn from practical experience to help teachers create powerful learning opportunities for their students, providing readable guidelines and introducing new techniques that potentially could be adopted for use in any teaching programme. Throughout the book introduces some key basic principles that underpin the practical advice that is given and which will help to inform teaching practice. This book will assist readers to reflect on and analyse with colleagues the different ways that their work as a teacher or trainer can be approached and how their student or trainee's learning can be made more effective. Medical Education is changing rapidly and this new edition takes full account of a number of important recent developments. The text is fully updated after a thorough review of the medical education literature. Five new chapters are incorporated: The teacher is important Collaborations in the delivery of the education programme The authentic curriculum Student engagement Inter-professional education New concepts added to the book include: Content specification as ‘threshold’ concepts Entrustable professional activities as an approach to outcomes Longitudinal integrated clinical clerkships as part of clinical teaching Integration of basic and clinical sciences Refinement and expansion of the FAIR principles Additional references to further reading.
