Why One Should Attend:

Clinician educators spend a significant part of their time seeing patients and teaching trainees about how to be excellent practitioners.  Many find this career model difficult in ascending the academic promotion ladder.  In fact, those caregivers who are excellent teachers can use their expertise in turning their teaching into scholarship.  In this workshop, we will get participants to identify what they excel in regarding their teaching and then see if they can develop a scholarship question based on their teaching excellence.  We will emphasize the steps necessary to succeed in educational scholarship and allow participants time to brainstorm, work in small groups and reflect on how to approach the scholarship of teaching.  We invite faculty in all schools on campus, those who consider themselves novices and those who have been successful, the latter using their experience to share with others.  Our end goal is to stimulate participants to get involved in educational scholarship as they see patients and teach.

Objectives:

This workshop will:

1. Identify a topic to explore through SOTL in your current work as an educator in the classroom or clinic
2. Develop an appropriate and valuable SOTL question to answer
3. Determine what data you need to answer your SOTL question
4. Consider strategies for data collection and analysis to address/answer your purpose/question
5. Critique and provide feedback to colleagues on their scholarship of teaching and learning project
6. Apply the lessons learned to future professional development through the development of individual action plans
