Thus, if students a to think, to analyze, to reflect, to incubate ideas, to ident learning needs, and to locate needed resources and observe clinical faculty doing this , then they will become lifelong le ing as much each year in practice as they did during their ma an academic program. A program cannot teach everything, bu to the needs of the current clinical climate and prepare the st for tomorrow.

An effective educational program for physical therapists therapist assistants is one in which the explicit, implicit, and are known to the faculty and are complementary. Faculty can i gies that will allow them to garner periodic input about the well as explicit and null, curricula from students, alumni, clin site accreditation teams. Being able to assess and understa and Liberal Arts Education In , Lewis Mayhew and Patrick Ford first describ inevitable conflicts that arise between educational programs for profe als e.

Twenty years after they firs revealed, the issues are still unresolved, which is a testament to the standing conservatism and resistance to change that characterizes A can higher education. The conflicts stem from the different educational outcomes that arts programs and professional programs seek to attain. The goal of tional liberal arts colleges is to create a learned person who has a g many aspects of the world and is prepared to function in multiple se The focus is on discourse, theory, and the need to reason, argue, creat as graduation speakers exhort, "to make a difference in the world.

The focus is on attai of practical skills, behaviors, and attitudes that reflect the ethos and tions, as bestowed by society, of that profession. From these basic differences, five conflicts arise between liberal ar grams and physical therapy programs located within the same institu 1. The curricular content of most physical therapy education pro is debated by college and university academicians and physical therap titioners.

Academic faculty from liberal arts departments who have a voice on college and university curriculum committees often argu physical therapy curricula focus too much on practical application a enough on the theoretical underpinnings of the knowledge. This i cially true of their perceptions of graduate physical therapy programs. An unfortunate often echoed by students returning from clinical internships. Thus, these educators present studen potpourri of clinically relevant information, only some of found in textbooks.

In contrast, the longer faculty members h academic setting, the more socialized they are to the tradition and the more theory and critical analysis will playa promine courses. Of course, both perspectives are important and relev therapy curricula. However, conflict arises because there sim to teach both perspectives in depth. Thus, the collective facu struggle with and faculty meetings are often permeated w about these somewhat antagonistic perspectives.

The university has traditionally been perceived as an a in society. It is a place where new ideas, skills, materials, an created and shared with the world. However, to produce pra must work in today's demanding health care environments first ensure that their graduates are ready to practice. That focus their attention on codifying and transmitting the con that is accepted by the profession and will be tested by nat examinations.

Creating new knowledge clearly has a seconda fessional programs. This fact has placed many professional gra therapy programs at odds with graduate curricular committee 3. All physical therapy programs rely on the liberal ar colleges and universities to supply prerequisite coursework ing students. The breadth and level of many of these prerequ the biological, physical, and social sciences are an anathem therapy educators. Professional programs, of course, have li content of these prerequisite courses, and similarly titled c munity colleges, small liberal arts colleges, and large uni strikingly dissimilar educational backgrounds among studen ing physical therapy class.

Teaching students who enter wit els of prerequisite coursework is frustrating to faculty an themselves who must continually readjust their foundation cal science, and trans curricular content coursework to meet dle level of student knowledge. The clinical education portion of the curriculum that t side the walls of the university is not well understood nor pa supported by most institutions of higher education.

While stu fee for clinical education coursework to the college or univ costs e. The result is a smoldering conflict between the clinic and the emy that is fanned by resentment and fueled by little hope of resoluti a result of the current health care economic crisis many different mod clinical education are being discussed that may be more cost effec health care organizations than the current costly system of one stud one instructor.

See Chapter 4 for further discussion of this issue. Tenure and stability for any faculty member and the progr which the faculty member teaches come as a result of proven perfor in three traditional areas of enterprise: scholarship, teaching, and se Of these three, scholarship, or success in developing a research pr that garners external grants and provides the grist for research paper ation of knowledge acceptable for publication in peer-reviewed p sional journals, is the area that has traditionally counted most t tenure in universities.

Most traditional university arts and sciences ty begin their academic careers with a doctorate degree in hand and own well-defined and productive area of research. For these faculty it ficult, but not impossible, to juggle these three areas of endeavor high level of competence. Historically, it has been a very different person who enters the mic world of a physical therapy program. The overwhelming prep ance of physical therapy educators have come directly from c settings, hold master's degrees, and have no well-developed ar research.

School of Physical Therapy | Anderson University South Carolina

While the number of doctoral faculty has clearly risen, in less than half of the faculty in professional physical therapy program doctoral degrees. As Patrick Ford states, "Because physical therapy tors have, by and large, been socialized and mentored into a professi ferent from the profession of college and university teaching, they br the academy an ethos and a set of values and expectations that a quently quite at odds with the prevailing value structure within highe cation.

However, many are exceedingly ill prepared to embra traditions of scholarship that are expected and needed for full acce in the academic world. Physical therapy faculty who teach in the clinical sciences mu course, keep their clinical skills and knowledge updated. However, this is so important to competent teaching in clinical courses, toward tenure in the traditional university setting. It is diff do three things well teaching, research, service , but it is ne to do four things well teaching, research, service, clinical cially if one does not have a PhD and is juggling the daily de ly life. Many excellent clinician-educators have found them the university walls after 6 years because they failed to fulfil sic tenure requirements.

Of course, knowing that these inevitable conflicts exist ty is the starting place for resolution. At the heart of this r development of physical therapy educational programs that who fit the traditional liberal arts model of excellence i research as well as experienced clinicians who provide stude lence in teaching and exposure to excellence in clinical pr thinking about ways to keep these clinical educators within has prompted such solutions as the development of faculty-ru tices and consultation and service contracts with nearby he cies.

Other creative solutions include the creation of cli faculty tracks not subject to the traditional tenure time-li and scholarly demands, faculty positions shared between the health care settings, and the use of skilled clinicians as lab tors in clinical science courses. Professional Accreditation for Phys Therapist and Physical Therapist Assistant Programs All institutions of higher education receive p from one or more state, regional, or federal agencies. If the in the standards of performance set by these agencies, they accredited. The general purposes of accreditation are listed i Performance standards by which programs are judged in tive criteria and qualitative analysis.

Quantitative criteria mi example, state board licensure examination scores of program professional qualifications of the faculty. Qualitative analysi the type of learning experiences students are engaged in and h riences impact the performance of the program graduates. Th judgments can only be made by other people, and thus an onvisit is common practice. In this way, the public is assured t self-study and planning.

To assure other organizations and agencies, the educational community, a general public that an institution or a particular program a has clearly defined and appropriate objectives, b maintains conditions under which i achievement can reasonably be expected, and c accomplishes its goals an continues to do so. To provide counsel and assistance to established and developing programs institutions.

To encourage the diversity of American postsecondary education and allow tutions to achieve their particular objectives and goals. To endeavor to protect institutions against encroachments that might jeop their educational effectiveness or academic freedom. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, ; Judging quality is not easy. It cannot be reduced to quant indices or formulas.

Such judgments are made by ga appropriate information about an institution or progra by having knowledgeable people appraise it. This essence of accreditation COPA. Since this commission has be sole accrediting agency, with authority granted by the U. As the sole accrediting agency, CAPTE makes autonomou sions regarding the accreditation status of physical therapy and physic apist assistant programs.

The reason, beyond assuring students and the public tha conforms to general standards for the education of compet ers, is that all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puert graduation from an accredited program as a prerequisite f practice license. The preaccreditation process for a new program is a involving the APTA Accreditation Department staff and p py educational consultants who work with an institution it first inquires about developing a program.

In this pr phase, the program submits substantive documentation 9 enrolling students. This documentation contains a comprehe tus that includes an overview of the entire curriculum plan tion of 'faculty, clinical sites, college or university resource space, and libraries in place or needed to support the progra for evaluating performance of the graduates. This documen oughly reviewed and commented on by a reader-consult makes a visit to the institution to further review the progra development.

The reader-consultant prepares a report tha with the program director, faculty, and college administrat with updated materials, is forwarded to the commission for regarding candidacy status. Self-Study Report The accreditation process is somewhat paralle creditation process in that a program prepares and submits study report. The self-study process is a continual cycle f accreditation Figure During a self-study, the program's fac aged to use a system of ongoing review and evaluation for all pr With respect to the previous COPA quotation, in ph accreditation, "gathering appropriate information" would re study report, and the "knowledgeable people" would be the m on-site team as well as members of CAPTE.

The program is guided in its ongoing program review an of the self-study report by the Evaluative Criteria for Accred cational Programs for the Physical Therapist or a comparable tive criteria for the physical therapist assistant program. Reviewing these criteria will provide the reader with an exc overview of the standards against which comparable physical therap cational programs are assessed. These criteria can be used on an on basis by faculty for program evaluation. Reading these criteria also giv an appreciation for the amount of extensive documentation regardi phases of the program that is contained in a self-study report and rev and evaluated by the faculty as well as CAPTE.

The process of preparing a self-study report allows academic and cal educators to review in-depth all components of the curriculum to mine what is done and done well, what is done to an average or les average degree, what is missing that should be included, and what c omitted to update and strengthen the program. Thus, the process of piling a self-study report is the first and most important aspect of en and enhancing the quality of a physical therapy or physical therapist tant educational program. While the self-study report contains extensive information in four areas i.

These data may include national physical therap therapist assistant licensing examination scores, surveys of gr ing their opinions about the strengths and weaknesses of t program, information that reflects the ongoing professional g uates, input obtained from employers, and patient satisfa Review Table for a more complete list of examples of pot evaluation data.

The individuals faculty and program directors to on-site visitor mission [CAPTEj have a mind set that rests question, "How can this program be enhanced personal communication, Faculty, clinicians, students, graduates, and administrator opportunity to become involved with any aspect of the accred are encouraged to do so with enthusiasm.

Curriculum conflicts that may appear internal or e to the program have been identified. Finally, this chapter presents a sized overview of accreditation, which is an engaging process that pro stimulus and benchmark for quality physical therapy and physical th assistant education.

The focus of all these efforts is to ensure excell clinical practice and provide learning experiences that will, as John states, "live fruitfully and creatively in subsequent experiences.

The teaching focus of that pioneering book and this preactive teaching. The terms preactive and interactive teaching were coined by gist Phillip Jackson. Such activities includ background information, preparing course syllabi, developing m even arranging the furniture in the classroom. These activities rational-that is, the teacher reads, weighs evidence, reflects, relates the current class content to past and future classes the st involved in, and creates an optimal environment for learning. Lik year teacher who was grappling with how to organize a I-hour lec of these activities occur when the teacher is alone and in an en that allows for quiet, deliberative thought.

Preactive preparation teacher time to think through the breadth and depth of informat to be presented subject matter knowledge to a particular group o knowledge of learners , as well as the most coherent and unde way to present the information pedagogical knowledge. By contrast, interactive teaching refers to what happens teacher is face to face with students. Interactive teaching activitie or less spontaneous-that is, when working with large groups o the teacher tends to do what he or she feels or knows is right.

Obviously, experienced teache siderably more skilled in interactive teaching and "reflectionthan novice teachers. However, thoughtful preactive teach tion can allow even the novice teacher the freedom to focus understanding and growth rather than lecture notes. Preactive ments are covered in this chapter. Chapter 3, Techniques for Academic Settings, focuses on interactive teaching elements.

Preactive Teaching Grid This handbook assumes that the teacher is ex competent regarding the subject matter to be taught subject m edge and is a physical therapist or physical therapist assistan good knowledge of the students to be taught and what informati for competent clinical practice.

However, to organize and presen a manner that is responsive to the overall curriculum design and dent outcomes pedagogical knowledge , the teacher is urg through the components identified in the preactive teaching gr 1. This grid is useful whether designing a whole course or a elements will contribute to the presentation of a particular conten Philosophical Orientation Eliot Eisner conceived of five philosophical orientati can be used to guide curriculum design: development of cognitive p academic rationalism, technology, societal interests social adapta social reconstruction , and personal relevance.

Development of Cognitive Processes Development of cognitive processes focuses on teach dents to develop and refine their intellectual processes e. The concern of the educa the how rather than the what. Little emphasis is placed on acquiri as this orientation proposes that by teaching students how to thin use resources, they will always be able to locate the specific info they might need. Problem-based curricula, such as that at MacMaster Univ Canada described by Solomon, are entirely based on this philoso this orientation, faculty identify cognitive processes that are n practice as a physical therapist.

These problem-solving cognitive es are then strengthened through a series of problem-based exp that are similar to clinical situations that physical therapists enc In a problem-based curriculum, the entire curriculum is com clinical problems. For example, rather than a class of students sittin ditional physical therapy courses, such as anatomy, pathology, the exercise, and health care policy, students in small groups guided b tor discuss patient problems. With any given patient problem, stude to seek out, analyze, and act on the information they need. That is, gather information from a variety of sources, including anatomy, p therapeutic exercise, and health care economics, as these sources the patient problem under consideration.

Of course, in any class or any course in any curriculum one working toward the development of cognitive processes. For exam might ask students to use their "hunch" regarding the outco care problem. Students could then identify and analyze w hunch was based on and what additional data they would n their hunch. By this process, the student is introduced to processes of inductive and deductive thinking, and how bot used in health care decision making.

As another example, st presented with a clinical problem that represents a moral dil ing such a problem involves the cognitive processes of iden dent's own values, comparing and contrasting these va principles contained in a professional code of ethics, and work nal, empathetic decision. As time to evaluate and treat pati be declining in all health care settings, teaching students to ly, humanely, creatively, and quickly is time well spent in e Academic Rationalism Academic rationalism focuses on traditional that faculty think represent the most intellectually and arti cant ideas of the field.

This approach relishes the history inquiry that have led to formulation of universal principle concepts useful in today's world. In this type of orientation spent on theory and less on practical application. The belief i dents learn of the great ideas created by the most visionary field and related fields , they are able to perform as edu women.

As Eisner states, "The central aim is to develop man ities by introducing his rationality to ideas and objects tha son's highest achievement. In this approach, can repeat material until a certain proficiency level is attained. In physical therapy and physical therapist assistant program many areas of content and skill knowledge that lend themselves nology approach. For example, in anatomy there are clearly righ answers, and the teacher's task is to determine how much anato level, and what approach can be used that will help students m apply the material accurately.

Practical skills knowledge, such mechanics of lifting or the steps involved in a wheelchair transfe itself to this technological approach. Many of the "tools of th taught from this orientation. Social Adaptation and Social Reconstruction Social adaptation and social reconstruction focus interests.

  3. Description.

This is a two-pronged orientation with one prong adaptation and the opposite prong being social reconstruction. That is, under this physical therapy and physical therapist assistant students woul ed to immediately fill those areas of practice with the greates job vacancies. In contrast, social reconstruction focuses the curriculum fying the ills of society and the skills that will be needed in t solve them. Such skills might include working to change cer of society, such as intolerance, environmental pollution, o ness.

For example, in a physical therapy or physical therapi curriculum, students would be engaged in experiences design op their tolerance for working with patients whose lifestyles siderably from their own, become involved in environme groups, or embrace participation in pro bono services for th Thus, while social adaptation and social reconstruction ha aims, they are tied by the common philosophical belief th needs should guide curriculum. Personal Relevance Personal relevance focuses on what is personally the student.

In this orientation, the teacher and the student educational experiences that are meaningful to the stud states, "The task of the school is to provide a resource-rich e that the child will, without coercion, find what he or she ne groW. However, the personal relevance orientatio in evidence in post-professional master's and doctoral degree most successful of these programs appear to be those that o a great deal of latitude in what she or he chooses to pursue faculty is dedicated to encouraging and supporting students in Using the Five Curriculum Orientations to Guide Course Development There are two useful ways to use these five cu tations in developing a course.

The first is to decide before course how much of each philosophical orientation will b example, for a course in basic skills the teacher probably wa centage of class time devoted to technology e. Go process of thinking about philosophical orientations or the go can guide the teacher in apportioning the classroom and l appropriately. Such a process can also ensure that all class tim ed to a single philosophical orientation. You might find that the social reconstruction orien nice thread throughout the curriculum or it may be left out This is an enjoyable and often revealing activity for individual well as the collective faculty. It will clarify the teacher's own beliefs about physical therapy or physical therapist assistant e well as how any group of faculty envision the present and futu of physical therapy. Learning Theories The next column in the preactive teaching grid con ing theories see Figure Phillips and Soltis, in their book Per Learning, provide an excellent synthesized overview of classical learning theories. II Theories about how people learn have been d least since the time of the Greek philosopher Plato Be.

Nearly 2, years after Plato, philosopher John Locke proposed an opposite view of Locke postulated that infants were born with the mind a blank sla rasa. The teacher's role was to provide experiences that would fil slate with knowledge.! Le ories provide the teacher with ideas about how to present differ knowledge and skill in a way that reinforces the underlying orientations the teacher is focusing on.

Behaviorism The behaviorism theory was developed in the fir twentieth century as a result of numerous experiments, prim mals and birds, by the experimental psychologists E. Tho B. In classrooms, acquiring accurate knowledg ing the right answer is rewarded by receiving high grades an faculty. Lack of responsiveness to acquiring the knowledge quelled by poor grades and perhaps even failure to proceed in Computer-assisted instruction is based almost exclusively o ing theory. Students receive immediate feedback contingent racy of their responses.

Clearly, many psychomotor skills facts that need to be memorized are successfully taught usin tic principles. The word gestalt means organization. Gestalt p believe people experience and organize the world in meanin or contexts. Therefore, information must make sense withi text or the learner will not be able to learn. This principle of learning in context clearly operates in tice and academic settings. Physical therapists, who in the p patients for functional activities by working on strength and specific muscle groups, now ascribe to the modern motor lear in which teaching movement within functional patterns acquisition of motor skills see Chapter 9.

In academic s known that students need a framework for information so tha the function of muscle groups in a kinesiology class and learning assist patients to improve the function of muscle groups in a ther exercise class. In this manner, students learn and understand the and insertion of muscle groups in the context of muscle function the context of the use of this information in patient care. Thus, rization of anatomic structures is easier because it has a useful con therefore "makes sense. He believed that gence is creative and flexible-we learn from engagin selves in a variety of experiences in the world.

Howeve of his descriptions, the following elements always appe some form: Thinking always gets started when a perso uinely feels a problem arise. Then the mind actively back and forth-struggling to find a clearer formulation problem, looking for suggestions for possible solution veying elements in the problematic situation that migh evant, drawing on prior knowledge in an attempt to understand the situation. Then the mind begins forming of action, a hypothesis about how best the problem m solved. The hypothesis is then tested; if the problem is then according to Dewey something has been learned.

Perhaps even more important, Dewey illuminates for us h learn from our experience in clinical practice.

His postulation occurs from actively solving meaningful problems explains the wisdom of experienced practitioners that is far beyond the kn tained in current textbooks. IS Much of his work is based on vation and description of the cognitive abilities of his three child Wancy to adolescence. From this work, he postulated that think ing were bound to the child's biological development. He sugges of biological development through which all children proceed: 1.

For example, Gagne suggests the fol chy: 1 facts, 2 concepts, 3 principles, and 4 problem solv example, students should be able to identify the muscles, ne nective tissues involved in the shoulder rotator cuff facts b student has missed anyone of these steps it would be difficult to proce the next step. For example, if the student did not understand concept how the various tissue structures are related, then it would be very dif to understand the biomechanics of movement.

    Thus, cognitive stru learning theories that began with Piaget's observations are very usef thinking about organizing and presenting information. Relationship Between Philosophical Orientations and Learning Theories When the learning theory used is not compatible with underlying philosophical orientation, course materials tend to be jum leaving students and teachers frustrated with the teaching-learning pro For example, suppose a teacher believes strongly in the development o nitive processes philosophical orientation and regards that as the a teaching.

    In fact, the teacher sets up examinations in the format of pa cases about which he or she asks a series of questions. The question designed to require the students to use cognitive reasoning skills. How suppose the material was actually taught using the behaviorism lea theory.

    Behaviorism is the learning theory that has predominated class life for most students since first grade, and they are well prepared for m orizing and parroting information. This "miss" between how the material has been taugh how the students are asked to apply it on a test is often apparent.

    The represents a discrepancy between the teacher's philosophical aim o course and the learning theory that guides instruction. Looking at the preactive teaching grid see Figure one can see if a large percentage of the philosophical orientation to the material is nology wanting students to learn specific facts and skills , then the lea theories of behaviorism and cognitive structure could logically guide th sentation of the material.

    However, just thinking through the emphasis 2-n placed on each orientation and learning theory and their resulta bility will help guide teaching and evaluation efforts in a way th students learn rather than be frustrated. Domains of Learning The third column in the preactive teaching grid i domains of learning see Figure These are the d have been most well defined and developed for educators. Thus, similar to Piaget's contribution to cognitive structure learning theories, the doma ing provide a guide to the order in which students can most ea information, skills, and values.
