Educational Landscape Project

Problem statement

Educational resources are difficult to find and utilize in the context of research, trial planning, and precision education. This project aims to reveal the landscape of existing resources and platforms, understand requirements for searching and using them, and make recommendations for a CTSA-wide strategic plan for CTSA training and educational resource discovery.

Project description

There is outstanding expertise in mentoring and domain-specific training across the CTSA consortium. Enhancing the discoverability and dissemination of the associated educational and training materials developed across the CTSAs will have an immediate impact on the career development and workforce training capability. CD2H will support improving discoverability, metadata/ontology development, curating and enhancing content. This will also allow coordination with other NCATS efforts, like the Development, Implementation and AssessMent of Novel Training in Domain-based Competencies (DIAMOND) which offers a personalized pathway for training in clinical research and N-Ligthen, a federated platform for education resource sharing. We will also work closely the CLIC EDU lead, CTSAs and associated working groups on identifying and prioritizing other personalized pathways to this resource.
