Brief  overview: As educators, what should we do to create a "safe" learning environment? Deliver constructive feedback in a way that learners view positively? Successfully engage a learner who seems disinterested? While much has been written about the centrality of trust in relationships with patients, the conversation around trust in education has focused on 'entrustment' of patient care activities to medical learners. What has been missing is a discussion about trust in educational relationships more broadly. Drawing from a diverse set of Psychological, Philosophical, and Sociological resources, Dr. Anderson will illustrate how we can be trustworthy in our relationships with learners, and how the resulting trust forms the basis for high-impact, meaningful, education. 

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of trust in educational relationships
  • Identify at least three key characteristics of trustworthiness 
  • Incorporate trust into your approach to effective teaching.
