Educators' Stories of Creating Enduring Change - Enhancing the Professional Culture of Academic Health Science Centers Paperback / softback

Each chapter is told from the viewpoint of an education innovator and is supplemented by short reflections from those individuals whose lives have been changed as a result of that work. With a focus on the process of innovation, the book organically explores various phases from conceptualization, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination. Educators' Stories of Creating Enduring Change generates a deeper understanding of an individual's capacity for creating enduring change.
It is ideal for all medical professions educators. "We wanted to inspire other educators to live their dreams by following in the footsteps of a group of leaders in health professional education.
By helping the authors tell their stories, we wanted the readers to experience their deep commitment - actually, it was more like a deep conviction - to realizing their vision of ways to improve health professional education and the learning environments.
We asked these education leaders to write 'their stories' and lace their professional journeys with stories from those whom they have influenced along the way.
In the end, our goal was to have a collection of librettos that would inspire readers to say, 'I can do that!'" From the Preface
