Please join us for BPER Reads, our annual "Battle of the Papers" where Ivan Silver and Paula Rowland will each champion which paper of 2022 is the one paper all health professional educators must read.
No events to show
We started in October with 5 scholars in our community championing one paper of the past academic year they feel every health professional educator must read. Over the past 3 months we have eliminated 3 papers and are down to our final two.
On February 14th, Ivan Silver and Paula Rowland will each champion the paper they feel deserves to be read first.
To see the champions, and why they chose their selected papers, please visit: https://centreforfacdev.ca/bper-reads/.

Paula Rowland, PhD, began her career as an occupational therapist, working with children and adults in multiple healthcare settings across Canada. Following an interest in how the places where professionals work shape how they work, what they can know, and what they can learn, Paula pursued graduate studies in health systems and organizations. Having completed her PhD in 2013, Dr. Rowland focuses on broad mandates to reform the practice of health professionals within clinical workplaces. Her existing research has explored two substantive change efforts: patient engagement programs and patient safety and quality improvement programs. In each of these domains, Dr. Rowland explores questions about knowledge, power, and identity. Through these studies of change efforts, her program of research (a) extends and disrupts theorizations of professions and healthcare work, (b) builds from these conceptually rich understandings to examine interactions between professions, healthcare work, and healthcare reform, (c) contributes to education science through explorations of these changing dynamics and their implications for professional knowledge and learning. Conceptually and theoretically, her work makes connections between sociology of the professions, sociology of work, and health professions education. Dr. Rowland is a Scientist with the Wilson Centre and MD Education and at The Institute for Education Research (TIER) at University Health Network. She holds appointments at the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy (status only) and the Institute for Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (cross-appointment), and is a strategic advisor for the Centre for Advancing Collaborative Healthcare and Education (CACHE).
3AprThis virtual community event is for CFD members to come together to during a lunch and learn to discuss emerging curiosities, questions and tensions within health professions education on the topic of the month.
4AprParticipants will have an opportunity to explore the instructional design strategy, productive failure, and how it can support the development of adaptive expertise. We will define productive failure, describe how productive failure has been used in health professions education, and illustrate how participants can use productive failure design approaches in their practice.
6AprThis workshop will guide participants through the application of the “Principles for Anti-Oppressive Program Development in HPE” guiding principles framework to their own program development needs. This principles framework is for anyone who is involved in the process of designing, developing and/or delivering programs in health professions education. It includes key questions around several decision points in this process, including budgeting, recruitment, format, accessibility, content choices, and more.
