Disseminating best practices in Geriatric education is at the heart of the Carolina Geriatric Center's work. Faculty across the state of North Carolina will have access to a collection of best practices in Gerontology and Geriatrics through the Master Teacher Program. The CGEC is creating a collection of learning objects and lecture resources to make available to faculty. Starting in the Spring of 2012 any High School, Community College or University instructor who wishes to can incorporate CGEC materials into their courses. CGEC staff are also available on a consulting basis to perform curricula review and program planning assistance.
Future plans call for a Master Teacher's Academy where instructors will make use of the Learning Objects Repository in long term projects of their own design. Email Cristine Clarke, Ed. D. for more information.
