A simulated interprofessional training session at the Kanbar Center with two nursing students and a medical student.The UCSF community is invited to participate in a weeklong grand opening celebration of UCSF's new Teaching and Learning Center from January 18 through 21.
The new 22,000-square-foot educational center boasts three functional areas: technology-enhanced classrooms; a student technology commons and a training center that provides instruction in telemedicine.
The new center will greatly enhance UCSF’s interprofessional health education opportunities and is the product of extensive input from faculty and staff from all four professional schools, Student Academic Affairs and the library.
Located on the second floor of the Kalamanovitz Library on the UCSF Parnassus campus, the Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) will host four days of tours, demonstrations and workshops to launch the state-of-the-art interprofessional teaching and learning facilities. A dedication ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 18 from noon to 1 p.m.
During the center's opening week, faculty, staff, students and trainees are encouraged to stop by to see innovative teaching and learning in action and to find out how these facilities will be used to teach, to learn, or simply to be inspired.
