Have you ever been faced with an instructional challenge such as... Teaching students about professionalism just before an anatomy midterm or
presenting a mandatory in-service to clinicians at the end of a busy summer Friday? Having your education to patients or community members fall flat? How can you grab your learners’ attention, maintain it, and be sure they learned what you wanted them to learn?  Teaching and learning are skills, and like other physical therapy skills, they must be learned and perfected. Teaching and Learning in Physical Therapy: From Classroom to Clinic offers a systematic approach to designing, implementing, and evaluating effective teaching-learning experiences. Each chapter begins with Objectives thatclearly delineate what you will be prepared to do after completing the chapter and concludes with a Summary of the major concepts presented. Stop and Reflect sections allow you to actively engage with the content as you process the information and move through the chapters. Critical Thinking Clinical Scenarios provide multiple opportunities for you to apply and adapt key concepts to real world situations. Finally, concepts are reinforced through frequent Key Points to Remember sections.  Drs. Margaret Plack and Maryanne Driscoll have over 35 years of experience in teaching, research, and clinical practice. Teaching and Learning in Physical Therapy is grounded in current literature and has a theoretical basis in reflective practice, active learning strategies, and brain compatible instruction. Also included in this text are practical strategies that allow students, educators, and clinicians, working with both students and patients, to enhance their critical thinking and clinical decision-making processes in a variety of settings and situations. Features included:·         A user-friendly approach integrating theory and practical application throughout·         References at the end of each chapter·         Classroom and clinical vignettes to reinforce concepts·         Integrative problem-solving activities and reflective questions·         Ancillary instructors’ material for faculty membersIn physical therapy, teaching and learning are lifelong processes.
