Title: Learning With, From and About One Another: The Evolution of an Interprofessional Curriculum in the Community College System
Authors: Shekter-Wolfson, Lorie

Issue Date: Oct-2007
Abstract: Traditional organizational structures, processes and space found in educational institutions do not automatically support a curriculum where students learn with, from and about one another as defined by Interprofessional Education(IPE). Therefore, to successfully introduce IPE within a siloed environment, one has to look at transformation as a large scale change project. Much has been written about the barriers to implementing IPE. This presentation will focus on how Toronto’s George Brown College, an urban community college, has launched and is still developing, implementing and evaluating IPE within its Centre for Health Sciences. The presentation will include an overview of the Centre’s theoretical framework used to guide the change and how the framework’s component parts fit together to create a comprehensive practical approach to this large scale change.
Description: Power point presentation first presented at Collaborating Across Borders, Minneapolis, October 2007.
