Faculty members engage in lifelong learning with Research Scholars Course
Kate Martin | September 20, 2013
Faculty Scholars course focuses on using research in practice.
Thirteen Northwestern Health Sciences University faculty members began the Research Scholars IV workshop series this week.
The overall goal of the program is to enhance skills in finding, appraising, and using research that is relevant to Northwestern faculty members. Participants produce a series of “Northwestern Best Evidence Summaries” which faculty can use in classes and clinics, and potentially publish. The workshops employ group discussions, exercises, and activities that focus on reaching evidence-informed decisions to real-life questions.
The course is designed and facilitated by the Research Division and the R25 CAM Research Education Partnership Project Team. The 12-week series runs from September 17 through December 3, and includes 24 hours of workshop time plus 12-36 hours of project work.
Fall trimester participants include:
- Dr. Anne Packard-Spicer
- Krista Jacobson
- Dr. Jeffrey Novak
- Dr. Michael Przeslawski
- Paul Ratte
- Dr. Barry Taylor
- Sara Swanson
- Dr. Mary Tuchscherer
