The Office of Academic Affairs and Society of Teaching Scholars are hosting the 2016 Innovations in Medical Education Research Forum. This conference provides the MCW educational community opportunities to share their new teaching programs and methods with one another and to be inspired to implement new ideas for future learning and teaching. George MacKinnon III, PhD, MS, RPh, Founding Dean of the MCW School of Pharmacy, will give the keynote address. The 2016 Innovations in Medical Education Research Forum spotlights our creative faculty members, fellows, residents, and students who are designing new curricula, formulating new approaches to current course materials, trying out new methods of assessing learning, and providing faculty development. In addition to research presentations and posters, new this year is a “faculty development track” during break-out sessions that feature teaching tips from distinguished educators. The goals of the Innovations in Medical Education Research forum are to: •Encourage our educators to consider innovations in medical education as an area for research focus and scholarship •Develop educational research skills in our existing faculty and encourage more faculty members, fellows, and students to conduct research in medical education methods •Learn from one another so that we will all benefit from new approaches to educating our students and residents.
