Presenting at the Nexus Summit:

This seminar will explore how signature pedagogies of health professions education shape learning and potentially interfere when learning interprofessional collaborative practice skills. Through interactive dialogue, we will stimulate a knowledge community committed to developing a new signature pedagogy for interprofessional education (IPE).  Participants will:1. Explore a professional signature pedagogy through the lens of teaching-learning strategies for person-centered care and teamwork. 2. Propose important elements of an interprofessional signature pedagogy.3. Compare and contrast…

In this seminar, we share findings from our research on student and clinician…
