Panel on successful clinical teaching Instructional Redesign projects

Health sciences faculty are invited to a Drake Institute Instructional Redesign (IR) Zoom session on Wednesday, July 15 from 4:30-5:30 p.m.

This event, part of the Clinical Teaching Community of Practice, is open to any instructor interested in redesigning clinical teaching. During this session, a panel of health professions educators and IR reviewers will present successful Instructional Redesign projects submitted through the Teaching Support Program. In particular, College of Pharmacy Associate Dean Katherine Kelley will share a redesign effort that reversed a decline in standardized test scores achieved by Doctor of Pharmacy students on a written assessment.

Additional panelists include Tonya Apke, PT, DPT, Board-certified Specialist, Orthopedic Physical Therapy, and president of the Ohio Physical Therapy Association, as well as assistant professor clinical and director of Clinical Education, and Kristin Nelson, MS, RHIA, and clinical instructor in the Health Information Managment and Systems Division at the College of Medicine.

IR encourages instructors at Ohio State to identify, implement and assess evidence-based teaching practices in their courses.

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • Consider how models presented might inform their own IR project.
  • Articulate one or two pathways for their own IR projects.
  • Identify methods of assessing the implementation of evidence-based instructional strategies.
  • Identify resources to support their own IR projects.

Drake Institute Associate Director Melinda Rhodes-DiSalvo will moderate the panel.

Full-time (.75 FTE) Instructors who successfully complete an IR portfolio are eligible for one-time compensation of $1,150 every five years. 

You may register here.
