  • Subha Ramani, Harvard Medical School, Dept of Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, USA; AMEE Executive Committee; AMEE Fellowship committee

In this session, a subgroup of the AMEE Fellowship Committee plans to explore educational scholarship and discuss strategies to advance from teaching to scholarly teaching and to scholarship in health professions education. Following the footsteps of experts (Boyer 1990, Shulman 1987, Glassick 1997, Kreber 2002), we unravel the theoretical foundations of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and emphasize key criteria for scholarship- work is public, shared and peer-reviewed. The session provides examples and suggestions to transform educational products into scholarship, through workshops, mentoring initiatives and networking. We encourage building interprofessional and interdisciplinary communities to nurture scholarship both nationally and internationally.
