This highly interactive 4.5-day virtual workshop provides participants with the expertise and support to be successful at the national level in obtaining funding for education research. We bring together a nationally recognized group of mentors and consultants as faculty, including representatives from potential funding agencies in a virtual space to support participants work. The workshop provides guidance in developing robust and theoretically grounded research agendas, research design and analysis (multiple methods); identifying “best-bet” funding sources; grant writing and budgeting; and creating intra-and inter-institutional collaborative research networks and projects. Some didactic sessions are included but the centerpieceoftheworkshopisone-on-onementoringthroughbreakoutsessionsthatprovidetheopportunityforparticipantstointeractwithacommunityofscholarsandrepresentativesfromorganizationsthatfundeducationresearch.

Once participants are identified, they will be paired with mentors with education research experience and expertise. Engagement of mentors and participants will occur prior to, during, and following the workshop to develop sound education research proposals that maximize chances for successful funding and publication. The overall aim is to create and expand a cadre of highly-qualified, networked and productive education researchers who will advance the science of physical therapist education, make significant contributions to the literature, and ultimately enhance physical therapy education and practice today and in the future.
