The ALiEM Team is happy to announce yet another eBook publication: the first volume in the Education Theory Made Practical series. This book was a labor of love written by the inaugural 2016-17 Faculty Incubator class. We are so very proud of all our Faculty Incubator alumni who made this happen. Their hard work has been compiled in this FREE, peer-reviewed eBook. We sincerely feel that it will be useful for all the educators out there, wrestling with the issue of integrating theory into practice.
Academic Primer Series and Curated Collections for Educators: Important Papers for Medical Educators
Members and mentors of the inaugural, 2016-17 ALiEM Faculty Incubator authored 9 narrative reviews in the Academic Primer Series and Curated Collections for Educators on several important medical education topics, which highlight the most important literature and their defined importance for junior educators and faculty developers. To ensure broad compendiums of articles were obtained on each subject, collections of papers were augmented via an open call for additional papers using Twitter. Subsequently, a selection panel comprised of both junior and seasoned educators utilized a 3-round modified Delphi process to identify the best, most relevant papers for medical educators.
In 2016, we launched a little experiment in faculty development with an elite group of junior and mid-career faculty members from North and South America. Twelve months later, we are happy to report that we all survived… and thrived! It’s been one heck of a year! Read about what we did in our 2016-17 Faculty Incubator Year End Report.
We simply have been unable to contain our excitement! You may have heard whispers on the internet, but we can now confirm that indeed, the rumors are true… The ALiEM Faculty Incubator will be accepting applications for next year’s class effective immediately! Applications are now open for the new 2017-18 ALiEM Faculty Incubator for educator-scholars ready to take their careers to the next level — from theory to application. Applications are open NOW.
Here are the 6 reasons we are incredibly excited about this year’s version of the “Facubator”.
