Clinical Teaching Learning Community: Supporting Clinical Teaching in the Health Professions

Teachers across our health professions academic programs must effectively teach diverse content, ranging from basic biomedical knowledge and applied problem solving skills to advanced clinical care and professional skills, in a wide variety of settings including classrooms, communities, clinical care areas, and other health care settings.

The clinical teaching learning community is designed to support the professional development needs of clinical faculty and preceptors across all UW-Madison health sciences schools. The community offers a central place to access and engage with interprofessional resources to those who teach in variety of settings.

By design, the community supports faculty who strive to earn Master Teacher designation through the UW-Madison Teaching Academy

We are here to support your efforts as you transition to alternate modes of course delivery. We will be offering a five-part webinar series that addresses key considerations for getting started, strategies and tools to help you communicate with your students, share content, assess their learning, and accomplish key course activities remotely, and how to find which options best meet you and your students’ needs.

The live webinars will be offered Saturday, March 14 – Tuesday, March 17. The topics are as follows:

Webinar 1 Topic: Communication & Collaboration Strategies
Webinar 2 Topic: Content & Sharing Strategies
Webinar 3 Topic: Assessment & Activities Strategies
Webinar 4 Topic: Access & Accessibility Strategies
Webinar 5 Topic: Course Goals & Storyboarding

For more details about each webinar, and to register, visit: You may choose to engage in a single webinar or multiple. The webinars will be offered in both live and recorded formats, accompanied with live Q&A. 

The series is open to all UW-Madison faculty, instructors and graduate teaching assistants, and primarily intended for instructors who have little to no experience teaching remotely. The webinars will be conducted in Blackboard Collaborate. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to a Canvas course with more details about the webinar. We will also send an additional login reminder prior to the start of the webinar.

We hope you will join us for one or more of the sessions. Recordings and resources from each webinar will be posted on, where you can also find additional guidance and support resources related to instructional continuity.
