OCS is committed to promoting scholarly activity in the College of Medicine by helping faculty develop knowledge, skills, and confidence to engage int he educational research process. Education Resource Specialists (ERS) are highly skilled educational researchers who collaborate with faculty on their educational scholarship. Included are projects involving the investigation of curricula and educational interventions, and those assessing knowledge, skills and dispositions of learners in educational programming. The purpose of such projects is scholarly dissemination. ERSs can join your research team to collaboratively design and carry out analyses for studies that fall within the scope of OCS capabilities. ERSs can also provide general guidance on best practices for engaging in educational research. OCS contributions to research studies may involve the following:
