The AAMC suggests these categories of potential outcomes from Learning from Teaching activities:

  • Preparing for a student/resident encounter or teaching session
  • Literature searching: updating bibliographies, synthesizing literature
  • Researching case materials related to presentations
  • Case discussion prompting questions and information-seeking
  • Researching clinical questions online or in journals and other text sources
  • Reflection on teaching encounters and undertaking improvements, developing learning/teaching plans
  • Developing educational materials related to case or clinical problems

Learners can’t reflect on these outcomes by merely by checking off a box. Rather, each learner requesting this credit should describe under each applicable category the improvement they made as they prepared to teach medical students and/or residents. See below for an example of an outcomes form for Learning from Teaching activities.
