Workshop: Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

Date/Time
24 Apr, Tuesday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 1, #01-01B
Description

Institutions responsible for the education of students must ensure that its education mission is optimally fulfilled together with its other missions like research and service. In institutions of higher learning, the primary emphasis on mission fulfillment was heavily weighted on research and, consequently, the word scholarship was narrowly interpreted to include only activities focused on discovery of new knowledge through the research process. During 1990s, the late Boyer advocated a reappraisal of and expanded the meaning of the word ‘scholarship’ which was further refined and now includes the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Today, in the 21st century, many institutions of higher learning recognize the scholarship of teaching and learning as a pathway to promotion and tenure in academia. However, to benefit from this, it is important to have a clear understanding of the demands and rigour associated with the achievement of the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Workshop: Qualitative Research Methods in Health Professions Education

Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 1, #01-01B

Qualitative methods are powerful tools to help educational researchers to develop theory, evaluate programs, and design educational interventions. Using qualitative methods, you can collect in depth information that you cannot obtain with quantitative methods. Qualitative methods are used to study human behavior and behavior changes, which are not well captured by quantitative techniques. The purpose of this workshop is to guide researchers in designing and implementing qualitative research projects. An overview of qualitative research design will be provided along with general recommendations for developing research questions, formulating a hypothesis, analyzing qualitative data, and validating the results.
