    Introduction to Medical Education Scholarship

    Peter GM de Jong, PhD

    Editor-in-Chief, IAMSE)

    Senior researcher, Leiden University Medical Center

    The Netherlands 

    For medical educators it is crucial to develop themselves in the field of educational scholarship to be able to explore the impact of their educational practice and to improve their teaching based on theory and evidence. In general, scholarship is defined as the creative, systematic, and rational inquiry into a topic and the honest reporting of results and conclusions drawn from that inquiry. It always builds on existing knowledge in the field and employs critical analysis and judgment to enhance understanding. Scholarship results in a product that is shared with others and is subject to the criticism of peers qualified to judge the product. The most well know product is the journal article, but many other scholarly products exist.

    In this session, Dr de Jong will address different opportunities available in the field of educational scholarship. He will introduce the audience to the concepts of evaluation and research, available research paradigms and study design approaches, identifying research questions, and the fundamental differences between educational research and biomedical research, in which many medical educators are originally trained. Finally he will present a brief overview of opportunities to disseminate and publish scholarly outcome.

    An Introduction to Quantitative vs. Qualitative Research

    Bonny Dickinson, PhD

    Mercer University

    Dr. Dickinson’s scholarship is focused on teaching and learning in the basic sciences. She uses qualitative and mixed methods approaches to explore how medical students apply their basic science knowledge to the practice of medicine and how this knowledge contributes to the development of adaptive expertise and professional identity formation. She is also interested in the professional identity formation of medical science educators who teach basic science content to medical students. Dr. Dickinson develops tools and approaches to support faculty development, which culminated in the publication of an educator portfolio toolkit and an educator evaluator assessment guide for those tasked with evaluating faculty for the purpose of appointment, promotion, and tenure.
