One of the biggest indicators of success in the workplace is the ability to communicate appropriately and in a timely manner. Effective communication is a process that involves both speaking and listening. Employees must be able to adapt with different organizational levels and types of people within their workforce. Participants attending this session will not only identify their own communication style, but those of their co-workers as well, leading to a more efficient, productive and pleasant workplace.

Stanford Faculty Development Program in Medical Teaching

The Stanford Faculty Development Program in Medical Teaching is a longstanding nationally-recognized teaching improvement effort. Since 2007, the School of Medicine has invited teaching faculty members to participate in this intensive faculty development program to help faculty enhance versatility in teaching, better analyze and improve teaching encounters, and engage in collegial discussions about approaches to teaching. The course is held on the WSU SOM campus and is facilitated by an instructor who has been trained at the Stanford Faculty Development Center. To learn more about this course, visit the Stanford Faculty Development Center website: http://sfdc.stanford.edu/.
