C9 - Clerkship and Program Directors Conference: Let’s Build an Educational Scholarly Product

Event Time: Saturday May 4, 2019 7:00 am to 12:30 pm
Topic(s): Research Methodology, Education, and History, Academic
Director(s): Zachary London MD, FAAN
Description: Neurology educators can improve their teaching, enhance their job satisfaction, and bolster their academic portfolios by participating in educational scholarship. Unfortunately, many lack the time, experience, or resources to develop novel educational tools or participate in education research. The speakers and workshop leaders in this course are neurologists who are engaged in the design of curricula, assessments, interactive e-learning activities, and other original educational tools. In the didactic portion of the course, they will share their tools and present strategies for developing and disseminating a particular type of scholarship. In the second part of the course, learners will break off into small-groups, in which attendees and speakers will collaborate to create tangible educational products in real time. This may entail enhancing or expanding the speaker's existing tool, or designing a parallel tool using the same platform. In some cases, there will be opportunities for attendees to explore the opportunity to become site investigators in multi-center education research projects pertaining to the speakers' tools.
Completion Message: Upon completion, attendees will gain access to educational tools that they may use in their own neurology clerkships, residency programs, and fellowship programs; describe strategies to design and implement different types of educational scholarship; collaborate in the design and implementation of new educational tools; and identify opportunities to contribute meaningfully to multi-center educational research in neurology.
