Let Learners Drive Learning (AAEEBL Midwest Regional Conf 2014)

Abstract
ePortfolios were piloted to deliver project-based research training. Manual project tracking dominated program communications, adding little to learning engagement. ePortfolios reduced email traffic for the current cohort, projected to be significantly less compared to the previous cohort (p=.02 using an unpaired t-test, eliminating one outlier and p=.68 when including outlier), strengthening the case for eportfolio adoption in more clinical and translational research training programs.


Session Description
The Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR) piloted Foliotek ePortfolios for 9 scholars in the Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR) program. Engaged training is achieved through a mentored research project that lasts through the one year duration of the MSCR program. ePortfolios were piloted in this course to deliver and support project-based learning.

Mentored projects warrant regular monitoring for timely intervention. Manual project tracking dominated program-scholar communications, which added little learning value. Foliotek eportfolios automated reporting on project milestones and deliverables. This allowed learners and the program manager to engage in creative problem solving, as opposed to chasing status updates. This pilot lays the groundwork for introducing eportfolios in other MICHR programs that use high impact practices to train future clinical and translational researchers.

  • Project based ≠ case based

  • The presentation portion serves as the “white hat”
    - learning motivation? check!
  • Mentored, project based learning is central to the Master of Science in Clinical Research program.
  • Sponsor Requirements Driver:
    - Translational research is project/operational in nature ~ basic science research is academic (DELIVERABLE)
    - 95% Project Failure Rate (INTERACTIVE)
    - Feedback: Instructor: Translational Science: 50%Ops/50%Science; Deliverables & Project Failure; Chris Austin
    Technology Driver: LMS/CMSs Don’t Support Project-based Learning
    Pedagogical Driver:
    - Manual project tracking dominated program communications, adding little to learning engagement.
    - Mentored projects warrant regular monitoring for timely intervention. Manual project tracking dominated program-scholar communications, which added little learning value.
    Vic’s introduction - most appropriate at this point.
    Project based learning in MSCR
    Project milestones and deliverables demonstrate learning progression as against scheduled homework. The existing Sakai-based course management system does not support automated project monitoring.

  • Focus on the baton, not the runner
  • EPILOG:- Our next experiment might be doing a team portfolio, "focus on the baton, rather than the runners" i.e. Put the work on the pedestal- We were told in Fall that Foliotek will overhaul their backend; I really hope we don't have to give it up for 2014 cohort.- Project based learning will only increase- Pressure from HHS/NIH to implement competency based assessment; ePortfolios will play a significant role in our delivery
