Team teaching opportunities for Collaborative Practice I

The Office of Interprofessional and Interdisciplinary Education and Research is recruiting faculty, advanced students and staff from community organizations to teach in teams for Collaborative Practice I (CPI), the interprofessional service learning experience for Case Western Reserve University health professions and social work students. CPI classes meet every Wednesday from 3 to 5 p.m., from September through April.

In CPI, student teams partner with champions at community organizations to complete authentic and meaningful projects. In addition, the student teams attend classes on teamwork and interprofessional service learning topics. Each class is taught by a diverse team of instructors.

Collaborative Practice I classes for the next academic year include:

  • Team charter for interprofessional service learning
  • Team communication skills and project management
  • Fostering psychological safety and mitigating implicit bias through inclusion
  • Roles and responsibilities in an interprofessional clinical setting
  • Deconstructive feedback and structural competency
  • History of Cleveland and collaborative problem-solving with curiosity
  • Conflict management through deconstructive feedback
  • Values and ethics in an interprofessional team
  • Applying systems thinking to team projects
  • Leading change as a team within a system

CPI provides a wonderful opportunity to meet individuals from various professions while team teaching an interprofessional course. No prior interprofessional or team teaching experience is required.
