Upcoming Workshops

Please join us on Thursday, October 9, for the 4th Annual Teaching and Learning Center Day. UCSF faculty, educators, staff, and students are all welcome.

TLC Day will feature free hands-on workshops on simulation, tools and technology at UCSF, and innovative uses of technology. In addition, keynote speaker Dor Abrahamson, Associate Professor at the Graduate School of Education and Director of the Embodied Design Research Laboratory at UC Berkeley, will lead a discussion on the concept of embodied design -- a pedagogical framework based on the theory that cognition is grounded in bodily experience and therefore students can develop their understanding of complex and seemingly abstract concepts through physically grounded learning activities.

View a detailed schedule of events, and register to attend.

 

 

Welcome to the Kanbar Center for Simulation, Clinical Skills and Telemedicine Education

What we do:

We support UCSF's educational mission of teaching, learning, and assessment through simulation recreating routine and complex situations, thereby improving patient care and safety. The center serves all five health professional schools at UCSF and provides learning opportunities across the continuum of health professions educaton.

 

Innovations and scholarships are a major focus of our center, where novel programs include interprofessional sessions with standardized patients, hybrid simulations focused on the ethics of healthcare, and longitudinal curricula that incorporate the the principles of viacarious learning.

 

Tele Technology Education: tele technology equipped rooms in our Simulation Center and the Anatomy Learning Center provide live videoconferencing broadcast for room to room team based learning.
