Analysing the cognitive rigor of interprofessional curriculum using the Depth of Knowledge framework.
The objective of this study was to analyse the curriculum content to determine its cognitive rigor. Cognitive rigor can be measured by the quantitative content analysis method using the Depth of Knowledge (DOK) framework. This approach tests whether the rigor of instructional activities and assessments is aligned with learning outcomes. The curriculum content evaluated in this study found that assessment activities were less demanding than instructional activities and infrequently aligned with learning outcomes. This approach may be useful to other educators seeking to evaluate and plan interprofessional curriculum. PM...

Developing interprofessional education online: An ecological systems theory analysis.
This article relates the findings of a discourse analysis of an online asynchronous interprofessional learning initiative involving two UK universities. The impact of the initiative is traced over three intensive periods of online interaction, each of several-weeks duration occurring over a three-year period, through an analysis of a random sample of discussion forum threads. The corpus of rich data drawn from the forums is interpreted using ecological systems theory, which highlights the complexity of interaction of individual, social and cultural elements. Ecological systems theory adopts a life course approach to unders...

Using the critical incident technique to measure long-term outcomes of interprofessional education.
This article describes the use of the critical incident technique (CIT) to evaluate long-term trainee outcomes attributed to IPE. Critical incidents (CIs) are specific examples of behaviours that occurred within the recent past. Trainees of an IPE programme (n = 24) were interviewed using CIT. Across the trainees, 41 CIs were reported, of which 9 were collapsed due to similarity in theme. A final total of 32 CIs were mapped along the Kirkpatrick/Barr Model of Learner Outcomes. The mapping process revealed that all of the CIs reported described incidents at Levels 3, 4a, and 4b, indicating changes in trainees' own...

Three types of struggles and six types of resource gains of networking were identified. The struggles relate, first, to the assumptions of networking following similar practices to those in a home organisation; second, to the challenges of dealing with the multivoicedness of networking; and, third, to the experienced gap between the networking ideals and the reality of cooperation. At the same time, the network members experience gains in emotional resources (e.g., stronger sense of mean...
