Education Research

The Education Research subcommittee is working to develop the interest and scope of education research and scholarship as a critical part of establishing an evidence base for best practices in health professions education delivery and assessment. We anticipate building a coalition of interested individuals to serve as a peer support mechanism for developing our faculty’s education research skills and ad-hoc peer review for those interested in submitting manuscripts or grants for medical education scholarship.

Faculty Development

The Faculty Development subcommittee is focused on developing core activities (e.g. workshops, hands-on breakout sessions, Education Day) to enhance the skills of our TEACH faculty as teachers, learners, and education researchers. This subcommittee assesses faculty needs in various ways including analysis of national and institutional evaluations and reports, reviewing the literature, and faculty surveys. We are always open to feedback from the faculty whom we serve. Please feel free to contact us (teach@carilionclinic.org) at any time regarding feedback on existing sessions and/or suggestions for future topics.

Journal Club

TEACH Journal Club will begin meeting in early 2016.  We invite level 2 and 3 TEACH membership levels throughout Carilion, Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, and Jefferson College of Health Sciences to join and participate in the journal club. The club will meet 6 times annually and will be limited to 15 participants per club.  The objectives of the Journal Club are:

1.      Develop quality improvement strategies to critique and keep up-to-date with relevant health education literature

2.      Share current knowledge and translate into evidence-based practice of health education

3.      Opportunities for scholars to have a discussion on current changes in the health education field.

Mentoring

The Mentoring subcommittee is working to facilitate and enhance the development of mentorship relationships within the Academy.  We see these dyads as dynamic, reciprocal relationships between an advanced career incumbent (mentor) and a mentee aimed at promoting advancement of the teaching careers of both.  While we anticipate frequent informal mentoring to occur within the Academy, the subcommittee seeks to expand mentorship options with supportive guidelines and robust faculty development in this area.

Awards & Recognition

The Recognition subcommittee focuses on ways in which TEACH can recognize its members that display exceptional and innovative skills in their teaching and education scholarship. This subcommittee develops the criteria by which TEACH members are considered exceptional and will report these members to the steering committee for review of recognition. Ways in which exceptional and innovative teaching can be recognized include publication of bio and achievements in local media, presentation of award, or recognition within TEACH as an esteemed member. We are always open to feedback from the faculty whom we serve. Please feel free to contact us (teach@carilionclinic.org) at any time regarding feedback on recognition of TEACH members.

Teaching Observership

The Teaching Observership subcommittee is focused on providing active review and consultation of teaching activities by faculty members.  We have several individuals on our subcommittee who have been trained to provide formative feedback on teaching in several settings (e.g., classroom, small group, clinical care rounds).  This service may be viewed as a type of collegial “peer review” of teaching, and results in both verbal feedback and a brief written summary as the discretion of the faculty member requesting the service.  It is especially helpful for newer faculty, or for faculty members who are in tenure track positions.  Using this service also counts toward a faculty member’s annual requirement of 2 hours of faculty development for teaching.

Technology & Innovation

The Technology and Innovation subcommittee is dedicated to exploring and recognizing novel ways to teach, that may or may not use technology. Our subcommittee’s initial task was to design the framework of the website for TEACH. We recognize and disseminate the creative teaching methods of our faculty members, and introduce TEACH members to creative use of technology.Please feel free to contact us  teach@carilionclinic.org at any time regarding areas of interest or innovation that you would like to see featured.
