About Research & Evaluation
Our centre’s vision of transformative change in learning and discovery environments, across healthcare systems can only be realized if we invest meaningfully in research and evaluation.
We believe that championing evolution toward higher quality, more equitable systems of health professions education, and faculty development, requires bold research and evaluation agendas that will:
- Develop high quality mechanisms for generating and acting upon evaluative data;
- Explore challenging and provocative questions about the status quo in educational and evaluation practices;
- Scrutinize the efficacy, impact and sustainability of curricular design and implementation practices; and,
- Illuminate how to centralize equity and promote social accountability.
Our Research Themes
There are four primary themes for our research including (i) ethics, and social accountability in evaluation systems, (ii) competence and compassion in faculty development, (iii) curricular integration of diverse educational paradigms, and (iv) integrity and methodological advancement in education scholarship.
