Compassionate and Relational Approaches to Leading Change and Evaluating Educational Programming Within Complex Systems

Approaches to evaluating education still assume that evaluation is about rendering judgement about the quality of the work of others. This Fellowship is evaluating a new program evaluation model that enables improved identification and understanding of how a simulation-based curriculum in client and family-centred care brings value to the people in the system.

The Fellowship is also focused on implementing and exploring the value of using a strengths-based and compassionate leadership approach to lead the development and integration of a resource for faculty to improve their ability to teach.
