Accessible Resource for Teaching (ART) On-line Resource Link
The Accessible Resource for Teaching (ART) is an online faculty development resource that was developed by a project team at the Centre for Faculty Development consisting of faculty developers and students. The goal of ART is to bring faculty development to the teaching practice through the use of short, focused modules. Each module focuses on a particular teaching and learning topic that can be applied in the teaching context and practice, and incorporates a teaching video, reflection questions and resources and is designed to be completed within about 15 minutes. The intent is to provide effective faculty development for busy teachers that can be accessed by individuals whenever they wish, but as importantly, can also be utilized by groups of teachers who are already coming together as a group, whether it be for committee meetings or clinical based meetings.
- Providing effective feedback
- Small group facilitation

ART is a free, on-line resource that can be accessed through the CFD website. Please contact Darlene Hubley at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like support to use ART with a small discussion group in your clinical or professional area.
