Who should participate?
If you identify as a clinician/science educator or have an education background or just want to learn more about education as applied to your job. The more diverse our group the better, so we can have a range of perspectives. Thus, don’t feel like you need to be a senior level faculty member with years of educational experience. You do not even need to be a faculty member to participate.

(2) Practice critical appraisal skills
(3) Interact with others working on education
