June 7, 2018: We are pleased to announce that core faculty member Wing Fu, PT, PhD, MA, has been selected as a recipient of a 2018 Hybrid Learning Course Redesign and Delivery Grant for her proposal, “Developing students’ clinical reasoning through a hybrid doctoral course with low-cost patient simulations.”
The grant is funded by the Office of the Provost with the aim of supporting the development of innovative and technology-rich pedagogical strategies as well as improving the learning outcomes at Columbia University in all disciplines.
Dr. Fu applied for the grant to transform the Complex Medical Conditions course to a fully hybrid model in the fall of 2018. The course will adopt an active learning approach and incorporate patient simulations. It will create a structured learning environment to enhance and assess students’ clinical reasoning, a critical attribute of physical therapists in the contemporary healthcare environment. The assessment findings will help provide research evidence towards teaching and learning of clinical reasoning.
In addition to in-kind support from the Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning, Dr. Fu will receive grant funding to cover project expenses, including educational research.
