In this online session, Jennifer Westerhaus Adams, JD, IU’s Associate General Counsel, will provide brief background on the laws that govern these issues and answer specific questions for faculty.



As part of a series of workshops to support preparation for teaching in the new IUSM curriculum, the first session will provide an introduction to team-based learning, and the second session will provide strategies for success in facilitation of team-based discussions.
