What is ESSNCE?

ESSNCE is a longitudinal faculty development program at North York General Hospital for staff and physicians to develop knowledge and skills in the area of “Education Scholarship.” Through a series of monthly 90-minute workshops, participants will be mentored through the process from an idea to completion of a scholarly project related to education. See our flyer to learn more about ESSNCE at NYGH.
What is scholarship?

There are many definitions of scholarship, but most would agree that for scholarship to be praised it must be characterized by (1) clear goals, (2) adequate preparation, (3) appropriate methods, (4) outstanding results, (5) effective communication, and (6) a reflective critique (Glassick, Academic Medicine. 2000; 75:877-880)

What is involved?

The program consists of monthly 90-minute workshops (3rd Tuesday, 4:30 p.m., January to December with a break for the summer) on topics that build on the core skills and knowledge required to complete a scholarly education project. In addition, each participant will be assigned a local “advisor” and have access to consultation with an “Education Scientist.” Participants will be expected to work through an education project – from idea to presentation. We are hoping that projects will be presented during Teaching and Learning Week in June 2017 and at a regional/national conference.
