Louisville, KY (PRWEB) February 02, 2014
Evidence in Motion (EIM) faculty member Dr. Brenda Boucher, PT, PhD, has been selected to receive the 2013 Stanford Award at the upcoming American Physical Therapy Association’s Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) which will take place February 3-6th, 2014 at The Venetian and Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The award will be presented at the Education Section Business Meeting on February 5th, 2014.
The Stanford Award, created by Katherine Shepard, PT, PhD, FAPTA, in honor of her former faculty colleagues at Stanford University, is awarded annually to the author or authors whose manuscript contains the most influential educational ideas published in the Journal of Physical Therapy Education (JOPTE) in the calendar year. Dr. Boucher will be receiving the award for her article titled “Flipping” Texas State University’s Physical Therapist Musculoskeletal Curriculum: Implementation of a Hybrid Learning Model, published in the Fall 2013 Volume.
“Flipping” Texas State University’s Physical Therapist Musculoskeletal Curriculum: Implementation of a Hybrid Learning Model details the “flipped” classroom approach Dr. Boucher uses to present her musculoskeletal content to first-year physical therapy students at Texas State University. Her model utilizes content from EIM’s Learning Academy Musculoskeletal Curriculum to present lectures prior to class, leaving class time available for critical content clarification and active learning activities. Both students and faculty members responded positively to the course format, and outcomes were improved over the traditional course format.
