Education Research: How to Begin your Journey (Mini-GAMER)


An urgent need is to provide guidance to novice researchers in developing competence in the essential building blocks and tools for successful research. Education research needs to move beyond the show-and-tell or descriptive phase of one (one program, one classroom, one clinic) to research that is grounded in meaningful questions linked with appropriate research designs and conceptual framing that can inform and advance education research in physical therapy.

This two-day, pre-conference workshop will provide opportunities for participants to build on their education research question of interest and engage in a participatory workshop with research mentors that leads to a plan of action for each participant.

The value of this workshop lies in both group and individual mentoring that provides participants with identified next steps and resources to develop their educational research.

Register here.  We've reached full registration for this year's mini-GAMER, but you can register to be added to the wait-list and you'll be notified about future education research workshops.

This workshop is sponsored by the Education Leadership Partnership, which includes ACAPT, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and the APTA Academy of Education.  We all recognize we need to put recommendations into action that support the development of the next generation of education researchers. Participants will be exposed to resources supporting educational research and provided by ACAPT, APTA, the Foundation of Physical Therapy and the Academy of Education.
