ESSNCE: Education Scholarship for Staff at NYGH Continuing Education
January 2016–December 2016 (3rd Tuesday, 4–6 p.m.)
What is ESSNCE?
ESSNCE is a longitudinal faculty development program at North York General Hospital for staff and physicians to develop knowledge and skills in the area of “Education Scholarship.” Through a series of monthly 90-minute workshops, participants will be mentored through the process from an idea to completion of a scholarly project related to education.
What is scholarship?
There are many definitions of scholarship, but most would agree that for scholarship to be praised it must be characterized by:
effective communication, and
a reflective critique (Glassick, Academic Medicine. 2000; 75:877-880)
What is involved?
The program consists of monthly 90-minute workshops (3rd Tuesday, 4 p.m., January to December with a break for the summer) on topics that build on the core skills and knowledge required to complete a scholarly education project. In addition, each participant will be assigned a local “advisor” and have access to consultation with an “Education Scientist.” Participants will be expected to work through an education project — from idea to presentation. We are hoping that projects will be presented during Teaching and Learning Week in June 2017 and at a regional/national conference.
