Teaching Academy Educational Research and Scholarship Series
Data Visualization Basics for Medical Educators
November 16; 12-1 pm; Zoom
Jorie Colbert Getz, PhD, MS
Assistant Dean of Education Quality Improvement, Associate Professor, Department of Internal Medicine
Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine, University of Utah
MD and residency programs have an abundance of assessment and evaluation data (big “education” data). Effectively synthesizing program data for quality improvement, decision-making and scholarship requires both data analytic and design skills. Thus, all medical educators can benefit from gaining basic skills in data visualization to be better consumers of program data and to better communicate their scholarship.
