If you have any questions about the IPE curriculum please register and we will share the ZOOM link with you.

Please note that this is NOT an IPE elective.

EDIA and Collaborative Practice - An Exploratory In-Person Conversation - Winter 2024

February 29

This is a pilot interprofessional education (IPE) elective for learners who are in the clinical environment.

This IPE elective will focus on exploring how equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA) concepts and systems of oppression (e.g. ableism amongst others) relate to and surface in collaborative practice.

This is a 3-part session with in-between activities.
In between the 3 sessions, learners will be required to actively engage in observation of how EDIA concepts relate to collaborative practice within their current practice setting. In addition, learners will be encouraged to think critically about how systems of oppression manifest in individual and team language/behaviours/relationships and to further explore EDIA resources to deepen understanding.

 

During the elective, participants will:

  1. Engage in discussion and reflection of how equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA) concepts and systems of oppression (e.g. ableism) relate to and surface in collaborative practice;
  2. Critically examine and challenge assumptions about what it means to be productive, work as part of a team, and how structural and systemic inequities (e.g. power and hierarchy) play a significant role when interacting with others.

 

ADDITIONAL DETAILS:

The goal is to provide a space for dialogue and an opportunity to examine what learners are seeing in relation to EDIA in their current practice setting. The sessions will support critical reflection on what learners are observing, challenge assumptions embedded in current structures and practices, and inspire changes in how learners move forward as a learner and collaborator.


 

Through a weekly, facilitated dialogue, this IPE elective will focus on exploring how equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA) concepts and systems of oppression (e.g. ableism amongst others) and inequities (e.g. power and hierarchy) relate to and surface in collaborative practice (i.e. on the team).

  • This will be a dynamic and participatory in-person experience. This is not a lecture about EDIA.
  • This is a 3-part session with in-between activities.
  • Thursdays: February 29, 2024, March 7, 2024 and March 14, 2024 at 12:00pm-1:30pm EDT (in-person).
    Learners must be able to attend all three (3) sessions.
