Dr. Richard Tiberius Retirement Reception Friday, March 28
Please join us for a retirement reception to honor a true scholar, artist, and naturalist, Richard Tiberius, Ph.D., and his remarkable career in medical education, at noon on Friday, March 28, at the Louis Calder Memorial Library, History of Medicine Room.
Known by medical educators around the world for his seminal role in establishing meaningful relationships between teachers and students to promote effective learning, Tiberius also authored a textbook on small group teaching called “Teaching and Learning Through Discussion: A Trouble-Shooting Guide.” He holds a Ph.D. in applied psychology from the University of Toronto, where he was a founding faculty member of their prestigious Centre for Research in Medical Education.
Tiberius joined the University of Miami faculty in 2002 with the mandate to establish an office of faculty development. Over the ensuing 12 years, he founded UM’s Educational Development Office and has brought to our medical school important initiatives in organizational development, instructional program development and faculty development. Tiberius has been a mentor, confidante, and friend to many junior and senior faculty members. He has raised awareness of the Miller School among educators nationally, bringing many prominent scholars to the monthly medical education grand rounds, and was instrumental in establishing a faculty appointment track for educators and for introducing the educator portfolio into the promotions and tenure process.
Please join us for the March 28 luncheon reception in honor of Dr. Tiberius, who will be on hand to greet colleagues and friends until 2 p.m. An hors d’oeuvres buffet lunch will be served.
