How can I participate?
This opportunity is open to UNC-CH Health Affairs students and faculty - on a first-come-first serve basis. In the event that the demand for participation is high, selection will be proportional to the participating schools so that participants span all levels of learning and engagement. Please fill out the application (DOCSpeaks Cohort Application) for consideration to participate in this teaching-learning experience..
How often will we meet?
The program will meet 2- 3 times a month starting in October through March. Participants will ultimately have input on the selected biweekly meeting day.
What time of day will the sessions be held?
There will be about 10-12 sessions and each will start at 1:05 PM and end by 1:55 PM. The format will include a short presentation and the "World Cafe" collaborative discussion style (see above). Food will be served for each session for those who are a part of the learning community. ALL others may attend any of the lectures.
Is there course credit for participation?
Currently the option of "elective credit" is being explored. But participants in the DOCS Program will fulfill their Adams School of Dentistry Diversity Training/Activity requirement, receive a monogrammed keepsake, and a Certificate of Completion. Participation and successful completion requires an 50% attendance of the sessions. This requirement is to maintain the collaborative interactions and Professional Learning Community effectiveness.
