Dr. Amy Shaheen presenting at the Community Conversation

On September 24th, the Academy had their first Community Conversation of the 2018-2019 year.  Over 50 people were in attendance, and several others joined through remote sites.

Dr. Amy Shaheen addressed the changing landscape of the Academy, which is not an honorary society, but a community of educators who aim to promote and support excellence in teaching.

Dr. Shaheen introduced the Leadership Council to the Academy, which is comprised of six elected Academy members, and a standing committee member from Educational Leadership within the School of Medicine.

Also introduced were the two Academy Committees, Scholarship and Programming, and the committee chairs shared the vision of the committees. More information on the committees can be found here.

Finally, Dr. Susan Martinelli presented on her research with the Flipped Classroom.  More information can be found on the meeting slides and the paper she published with her colleagues.

Meeting minutes can be found here.
