Call for Chapters – Case Studies in Applying SoTL in Clinical Disciplines

Leave a comment

Co-editors Jennifer C. Friberg (Illinois State University), Colleen F. Visconti (Baldwin Wallace University), and Sarah M. Ginsberg (Eastern Michigan University) invite submissions for their upcoming text: Case Studies in Evidence-Based Education: A Resource for Teaching in Clinical Professions. This text is under contract with Slack Publishers (late 2020 pub date expected).

This book will present evidence-based education case studies that support teaching in the same manner that evidence-based practice is used to support clinical practice. Case studies will describe one of two phenomena: how existing research on teaching and learning has been applied to adapt a learning context OR how course instructors have collected data and used it to inform changes to course design, content, or implementation. The key to all chapters will be the description of how research on teaching and learning can be used in the clinically-based classroom to encourage the use of evidence-based pedagogies.

After a successful first round of submissions, we are looking to round out this volume’s content with chapters on topics such as: flipped classroom processes, undergraduate research experiences, computer-based simulations, civic engagement, establishment of learning communities, use of standardized patients, ways to engage students in large/small group discussions, and innovative forms of assessment for clinical knowledge and skills. Other topics are welcome, as well.

Submissions are sought from contributors representing a wide variety of clinical disciplines including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Speech-language pathology
  • Audiology
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Nursing
  • Medicine
  • Optometry/ophthalmology
  • Physician Assistants
  • Psychiatry
  • Pharmacology
  • Radiography
  • Athletic Training
  • Public Health and Health Prevention
  • Physiology

Submission Process:

Those interested in contributing to this volume should submit a one-page (maximum) manuscript overview no later than May 13, 2019 to Jennifer Friberg (jfribe@ilstu.edu). This one-page manuscript overview should describe:

  • the teaching/learning context that is the focus of the chapter
  • how original data or existing research was applied to adapt the teaching/learning context
  • ways the evidence described in your chapter could be applied to other clinically-based disciplines.

Editors will review submitted manuscript overviews and invite selected contributors to submit complete manuscripts for inclusion in this volume. A sample chapter is available for review upon request. Questions? Please contact Jennifer Friberg (jfribe@ilstu.edu).
