1) PErsonally ARranged Learning Sessions (PEARLS). This activity is designed to support our Art of the Possible grant applicants, but all faculty members with an interest in education scholarship are invited. We will use small and large group formats to provide an enjoyable and relaxed opportunity to brainstorm, collaborate and refine project ideas in a safe and supportive setting.
2) Writing Workshop with Dr. Nick Pimlott – a hands on, working session in which participants will be provided with key principles and practices of being a successful writer, and some relevant resources to support them in their writing. Participants will be expected to come prepared to work on a piece of writing and to "workshop it" amongst their peers. This session is intended for academic family physicians who have some writing experience, but who are struggling to incorporate writing time into their work.
