Behind the Scenes Series: How Education Scholarship Gets Made

Have you ever read an academic article and thought to yourself: “Wow, these people are smart. I could never execute a research project and write a paper like this.”? If the answer is yes, then join the club. As education scientists, teachers, and health professionals, we often only see the final product of an educational scholarship/research project, which is typically a polished paper. What we fail to see, however, is all the messy, not-so-glamorous work that goes on behind the scenes – how scholars come up with and develop their initial ideas, how they build their research team, find study measures, deal with IRB, conduct the actual study, and write-up their work. The purpose of this grand round series to give participants a peek behind the scenes and help them develop the knowledge and motivation to become involved in education scholarship.


Scene 4: Getting Your Ideas Down on Paper so that Someone will Want to Read Them

June 3, 2021 Noon to 1 p.m.

Hosted by UCSF – Register here

Faculty getting started in education “know” they have to write, but maybe are less clear on why and how. Two faculty getting started in this field will present their quandaries and tensions about writing. They will get tips from experienced educational researchers particularly about translating your good ideas into something fit for dissemination. This includes understanding each part of a manuscript, how to work with your team and how to set realistic expectations for themselves. The session is designed as a conversation addressing questions from the audience and also using the audience to crowd-source additional good ideas.

During this session, participants will:

  • Observe interviews between education research scholars about the “tricks of the trade.”
  • Participate in a facilitated chat to address questions

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Select strategies to facilitate writing manuscripts fit for dissemination.
  • Identify tenets of authorship

Scene 3: How to Get Scholarly Work Done When you Have no Time

Mar. 10, 2021 3 to 4 p.m.

Hosted by UCSF – Register here

Time is always challenging. Two junior scholars will be presenting their quandaries with how to do scholarship as a clinician. They will get tips from experienced educational researchers particularly about time for reading, writing, advocating for oneself and use of timelines. The session is designed as a conversation addressing questions from the audience and also using the audience to crowd-source additional good ideas.

During this session, participants will:

  • Observe interviews between education research scholars about the “tricks of the trade.”
  • Participate in a facilitated chat to address questions

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Select strategies to find time for reading and writing needed to undertake scholarly work that fit their situation.
  • Identify strategies to advocate for oneself when educational opportunities become available.

Scene 2: What Happens to my Paper? Pulling Back the Curtain on the Peer Review Process

Jan. 6, 2021 3 to 4 p.m. ET

Hosted by UCSF – Register here

Have you ever wondered what happens to your paper after you click “submit” or been puzzled by a decision and curious why some decisions take days and others take months? If so, this interactive panel discussion is for you! In this session, editorial team members from Academic Medicine, Perspectives on Medical Education, and Teaching and Learning in Medicine will share insights from their experiences with editorial and peer review. They will explain how the review process works at each journal and how the surge of submissions during the COVID pandemic has affected it. Panelists will also highlight features that make articles stand out or that raise concerns. Questions are encouraged, so bring your list of anything you’d like to know about how things work behind the scenes at med ed journals!

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the editorial and peer review process at three medical education journals
  • Discuss how the surge of submissions during COVID has affected journal review processes
  • Identify features of articles that catch editors’ attention (in good and bad ways)

Scene 1: Reaching Out

Dec. 15, 2020 12 to 1 p.m. ET

Hosted by UCSF – Register here

You have a study idea, who can you discuss it with? You discover an interesting approach or useful tool in the literature. Should you reach out to the authors? You hear someone at a conference who might share your interest or be able to help answer a question about your study. How do you engage them in a conversation? Come listen to education research scholars share their tips for reaching out. They will also answer your questions about how to engage with the larger educational scholarship community.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the importance of situating research within the literature
  • Describe the strategies for engaging with members of the education research community to grow an education scholarship network

Upcoming Scenes: Dates TBD
