CHES is proud to host a monthly session of the Cutting Edge Speaker Series on the second Tuesday of each month from 12:00-1:30pm, with virtual connections available to all distributed sites. Presenters will be drawn from our internal UBC community, as well as external institutions. Depending on the month, the Cutting Edge Speaker Series will vary in a rotation of three different speaking genres:
- The What I’m Thinking About is designed to promote questions and discussion around a specific topic relevant to health professions education. Each session is facilitated by a moderator, and will usually include two to three short presentations of theoretical, research-based, or implementation findings before moving into group questions and discussion.
- The Invited Speaker Rounds are focused to present a critical examination of current topics of interest in health professions education research. Each session will feature an invited local or international speaker, who will present their program of scholarship, with audience questions and discussion to follow.
- The Joanna Bates Lectureship will feature a presentation from a CHES trainee, fellow, or student in recognition of the legacy of CHES’ founding director, Dr. Joanna Bates.
Learning Objectives – by the end of each session, participants will be able to:
- Identify and challenge current thinking in a particular area of health education scholarship.
- Relate concepts explored to their local educational context for the purpose of improving education practices and informing educational innovations.
- Relate concepts or insights explored to their own scholarship.
