Educational Impact: Addressing the

12:00-1:00 p.m., Wednesday, March 11, 2020, Beard 200 & Karpen 103
How does your institution conceptualize educational impact? How is it different from teaching excellence and scholarly teaching? In what ways can it be documented and evidenced? This program will share how the University of British Columbia (UBC) and the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences has been wrestling with how to think about, identify, document, and establish impact of teaching and learning activities for all faculty that teach. Pharmacy educators will be introduced to UBC’s Educational Leadership Mapping (ELM) tool and the Teaching and Learning Impact Framework (TLIF) for establishing educational impact and the types of evidence that can support impact claims. Participants will leave this program with a deeper understanding—and more nuanced view—of educational impact and how the ELM tool and TLIF might be applied in their own contexts and institutions. This work has important implications for student success and our professional growth and career advancement as teachers and scholars.
  1. Define educational leadership in your context
  2. Identify your teaching and learning activities using the Educational Leadership Mapping tool
  3. Describe sources of evidence of impact of educational activities
  4. Outline next steps for mapping, documenting and establishing impact of your educational activities
Target Audience:  This program is designed for all teaching faculty, preceptors and trainees.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  Friday, March 6, at 3 p.m.
