Three components of the General Approach to Educational Scholarship discussed on this website are curriculum development, creating a , and scholarship in education.
To define an educational work as scholarly, it must advance knowledge, be disseminated, and be open to review. Educational scholarship can involve products such as a new curriculum, new methods for information organization or delivery, educational interventions, and educational research and should focus on outcomes.
- Educational scholarship is demonstrated when knowledge is advanced through a product that can be disseminated. Curriculum evaluation that is disseminated is an example of scholarly work.
- While the goal of outcomes measurement for educational interventions should be focused toward improved health outcomes, it may be more practical to focus on changes in clinician behavior first.
