AAMC Medical Education Research Certificate (MERC) Workshops
The Teaching Academy is hosting two AAMC Medical Education Research Certificate (MERC) Workshops on Friday, May 7 and Friday, May 14, 2021.
The Medical Education Research Certificate (MERC) program is intended to provide the knowledge necessary to understand the purposes and processes of medical education research, to become informed consumers of the medical education research literature, and to be effective collaborators in medical education research.
The program is open to all who are interested in improving their educational research skills and is targeted for those with a background in medical education but relatively less experience in conducting educational research. There is no charge to participate, however you must pre-register.
Introduction to Qualitative Data Collection Methods
Friday, May 7, 2021
Facilitator: Britta Thompson, PhD, Co-Director, Office for Scholarship in Learning and Education Research, Penn State College of Medicine
Register here for this session.
This workshop is intended for physicians and generalists in medical education, as well as faculty and staff involved in student affairs, who wish to develop perspectives and skills for collecting qualitative data, such as data from focus group discussions, interviews, observation field notes, and responses to open-ended questions—used in admissions processes, program development, curriculum evaluation, needs assessments, performance evaluation, and various scholarship and research applications.
After participating in this workshop, learners will be able to:
- Demonstrate applied knowledge of the appropriate selection, use, and standards for rigor of some common methods for collection of qualitative data;
- Generate research questions appropriate for qualitative studies and choose appropriate data collection methods;
- Demonstrate applied knowledge of approaches to achieve rigor in the design of qualitative studies and collection of qualitative data;
- Demonstrate essential skills required for conducting focus groups.
Hypothesis Driven Research
