Teaching for Transformation (TforT) is jointly offered by CIPE and the Centre for Faculty Development. It was inspired by a growing need in health professions education and practice to prepare clinicians for a multitude of complex social roles. For example, collaboration, advocacy, and systems navigation must be performed within a complex health care system that aims to support compassionate, equitable, and person-centered care orientations, while also managing limited resources, quality, safety, and accountability. Aligned with these needs, TforT brings together educators interested in the theory and practice of transformative education and critical pedagogies.
TforT aims to promote and provide the development of critically reflective/reflexive individuals in relation to their educational roles in health care.
