C143 - Education Research Methodology Course

Event Time: Tuesday May 7, 2019 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Academic, Research Methodology, Education, and History
Director(s): Andrew Southerland MD
Description: For the many neurologists who are clinician educators, the prospect of conducting independent research may be daunting. However, education research offers the opportunity to answer important scientific questions in neurology education while generating academic productivity from one's role as an educator. In this course, we will provide an overview of education research methods that will help formulate good ideas and education research questions into tangible project proposals. In the first hour, speakers will provide topic discussions on hypothesis generation, study design, and outcomes assessment. In the second hour, we will break out into small groups providing faculty and peer mentorship for individual attendees to vet their education research ideas. We hope that this session will serve as a springboard for attendees to take their project ideas and turn them into future grant proposals and publications, while serving as a source for ongoing mentorship in education research methodology.
Completion Message: Upon completion, participants will gain an overview of research priorities and opportunities for funding in neurology education research; have a better understanding of education research methods focused in hypothesis generation, study design, and outcomes assessment; and have the opportunity to refine their education research ideas into feasible project proposals.
CME Credits: 2
