The 2014 Claude Bernard Distinguished Lecture: The Social Contract of Learning
Carroll, Robert G.
Advances in Physiology Education, v39 n1 p1-4 Mar 2015
The shift to competency-based education expands the role of the teacher from that of a provider of information and into a shaper of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. These roles are facilitated by establishing a social contract between the instructor and learner, a contract that clearly defines the rights and duties of each. Adopting greater responsibility for the development of competencies in our learners allows faculty members to truly have an impact by shaping the behaviors of learners.
