Sections “The Roles and Competencies of a Good Teacher”, “Learning Outcomes and Outcome-Based Education”, “Organising the Learning Programme”, “Facilitating Learning”, “Assessing the Progress of the Learner” and “Today’s Teacher and Tomorrow’s Doctor” cover a myriad of useful topics, with definitions, rationale, and practical examples.
