CHIPS Mini-Course Description

The educational scholarship section activities will include brainstorming on the various activities participants can become involved with, identifying personal and institutional barriers in conducting medical education scholarship, identifying resources and strategies for success in education scholarship, networking to share ideas and build potential collaborations, and developing an individual plan for future scholarship. Participants will complete an activity to allow reflection on personal barriers to scholarship and strategies to overcome these barriers.

The statistical methods section will provide guidelines that educators can use to determine the appropriate statistical analyses to use when performing their own educational research and how to interpret results. Participants will engage in guided practice using the techniques learned. Flow diagrams will be provided that illustrate how to choose a test and how that test was used in a published educational intervention. Attendees will work through sample data provided. No prior statistical knowledge is needed.

Learning Objectives:
By the end of the session, participants will:

  1. Describe three ways to enhance their scholarly work in medical education
  2. Demonstrate strategies they can use in developing one piece of educational scholarship, focusing on approaches to overcome forseen barriers
  3. Analyze educational scholarship with real data using a 4-step approach to choosing a statistical test
  4. Collaborate with colleagues to enhance opportunities to increase education scholarship
