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.
Submissions are sought from contributors representing a wide variety of clinical disciplines including (but not limited to) the following:
- Speech-language pathology
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Physician Assistants
- Athletic Training
- Public Health and Health Prevention
Those interested in contributing to this volume should submit a one-page (maximum) manuscript overview no later than March 22, 2019 to Jennifer Friberg (email@example.com). 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. Each invited chapter will feature the following components, standardized across all chapters for flow and consistency, describing the use of research on teaching and learning to approach instruction from a scholarly perspective:
- A description of the teaching/learning context focused on in the manuscript
- Brief review of original data or extant literature applied to the teaching/learning context
- If original data, a brief report of study methods and outcomes
- Description of how original data/extant research was applied in the teaching/learning context
- Additional ideas for how evidence could be applied in other contexts, with a cross-disciplinary perspective
- Resources for readers to access additional research in this area
A sample chapter is available for review upon request. Questions? Please contact Jennifer Friberg (firstname.lastname@example.org).
