Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to
- articulate their program of research in compelling and persuasive ways,
- identify opportunities to align “service work” with scholarship, and
- make choices about time, projects, and authorship that support the development of a research profile.
Making the leap from doing individual education research projects to building an education-based research program challenges many educators. Creating a profile as a health professions education researcher requires a vision, a plan to realize that vision, and a set of tools to execute that plan. In this workshop, participants will learn how to assemble their research ideas and projects into a coherent program. Through discussions with peers and mentorship from workshop facilitators, participants will develop and present an overarching vision for their research program. They will then craft a plan for realizing that vision, including critically mining clinical, administrative, or teaching components of their current work for their potential to generate scholarship aligned with their vision. A series of interactive activities will offer tools that can support developing a compelling research profile.
