Teaching has important parallels to improvisational jazz performance. Jazz musicians on the bandstand both play in the moment and communicate constantly with one another and their audience. Like jazz musicians, teachers must know where they are going in a class, but the pathway to that place is never the same, and they need to stay centered in the present moment and be inventively responsive to learners' unique reactions. In this program, celebrated physician-educator Dr. Paul Haidet explores the jazz concept of voice and translates this to the teaching environment. As teachers (of medicine or other subjects), how can we best shape our own voices, deftly deliver the material, communicate in the moment with diverse learners, and carry a class and its themes through to a satisfying and memorable conclusion? Co-presented with the Brodie Medical Education Committee and the Department of Medicine, in observance of Medical Education Research Week
