The Office of Interdisciplinary Programs (OIDP) Evaluation Team, is charged with producing evaluation and assessment data related to IPE curricular outcomes for the review of the Curriculum Committee and other campus stakeholders.
Following years of content assessment and data reporting regarding curricular outcomes, OIDP has initiated a formal process for comprehensive programmatic evaluation. This lightning talk will discuss the goals of the program evaluation plan, which include: 1) Gather program metrics to assess curricular outcomes, and provide baseline data for quality improvement projects, 2) Gather metrics regarding the OIDP activity outcomes related to short, medium, and long-term strategic goals, 3) Identify gaps in our current IPE program assessment and evaluation practices, and 4) Disseminate and report-out on the findings of program evaluation to internal/external stakeholders.
Our Program Evaluation Plan has included the following steps: 1) Environment scan and program assessment, 2) Creation of program goals formalized in a Logic Model, 3) Identification of a sustainable assessment tool to be used on all IPE curriculum, and 4) Development of a sustainable template for an evaluation plan to be implemented in Fall 2022.
This lighting talk will also discuss Project outcomes, which include the creation of a Logic Model, and methods for inclusion of learners and other stakeholders in the operation and reporting of the Evaluation Plan data.
This lightning talk addresses the Summit theme, Interprofessional Learning for Collaborative Practice and Education, by providing an overview of a comprehensive IPE program evaluation plan for students, staff, and faculty within an Academic health sciences center.
The impact of IPE Program Activities will primarily be measured by JTOG questions that map to the foundational Competencies for Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC). This lightning talk addresses many of the conference’s priority criteria including:
Measurable learning and health outcomes
Measurable impact of interprofessional team on health equity
