Background: This workshop will showcase the core mission of AMEE to promote international excellence in health professions education (HPE), as well as the purpose and value of both formal and informal mentoring avenues aimed at the development of health professional educators and educational scholars worldwide (Ramani et al. 2020, 2021).Drawing from Boyer’s (1990) scholarship model, we present the need to recognise and reward faculty not only for their research but for their scholarship in application, integration, and teaching. Experts (Shulman 1987, Hutchings 1999, Trigwell et al. 2000) emphasized that educators aspiring for scholarship of teaching and learning, should make their work public and peer-reviewed for innovative educational practices to be disseminated and implemented across educational units. These scholars should have clear goals, apply appropriate methods, present their results effectively, and reflect on the critique they receive (Glassick 2000). An updated overview of Scholarship in Health Professions education (Cleland et al. 2021) reiterated that all types of scholarship added value to the field: (1) the scholarship of discovery through discipline-specific research and peer-reviewed publication, (2) the scholarship of integration through synthesising knowledge and integrating concepts, (3) the scholarship of application through using research evidence to develop educational activities and curricula, (4) the scholarship of teaching and learning through pedagogical exploration of educational activities, strategies and leadership, making the findings public, peer-reviewed, and disseminated.
Who Should Participate: This workshop will stimulate and benefit all health professions educators initiating or advancing their careers as educational scholars, nationally and internationally.
Structure of Workshop: The workshop includes presentations by facilitators and interactive group work focusing on participants’ HPE scholarship portfolios in which they systematically document their activities for better recognition of their work.
Intended Outcomes: At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify different types of scholarship in Health Professions Education.

  • Prepare and design their HPE scholarship portfolio.

  • Reflect on how they as educators can best pursue scholarship and seek reward and recognition for their deep commitment to educational endeavours.
