ACAPT's Education and Pedagogy Consortium focuses on exploring and promoting best practices of pedagogy and education by providing an avenue for member institutions to collaborate and discuss teaching methodology/processes, educational
assessment methods and outcomes, and scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) related to physical therapy education.
Collaborative work continues with the “SIG-Sortia” - an Academy of Education's special interest group (SIG) and two ACAPT consortia working together on overlapping topics of interest - that includes:
- ACAPT’s Clinical Reasoning Curricula & Assessment Consortium (CRCAC),
- ACAPT’s Education & Pedagogy Consortium and
- APTA’s Academy of Education Scholarship of Education (SoE) Special Interest Group (SIG)
The SIG-Sortia continues to explore topics relevant to each group and how they can all integrate their perspectives for the benefit of PT education.
