AOE events: Charon visits campus to discuss narrative teaching methods

Rita Charon, MD, PhD, of Columbia University, is visiting campus in April to work with our faculty on how narrative methods can serve the medical curriculum at UNC.

You may find her workshops of interest:

  • If you read students’ reflective/narrative writing exercises, and you want to respond more constructively to that writing (i.e., discuss/comment on it)
  • If you compose “narrative” evaluations of students at the end of a course block or clerkship, and want to do it better.

Any SOM faculty member is welcome to attend these events. Please share the invitation with colleagues outside the Academy who may be interested. The workshops in particular will be hands-on, and address our needs and capacities: how do we wish to put reflective/narrative writing to work for us?
