Expanding the Scope of Faculty Educator Development for Health Care Professionals
Kadriye O. Lewis,Raymond C. Baker
Journal of Educators Online , 2009,
Abstract: Although many medical institutions offer faculty development in education, this does not provide the in-depth knowledge of the science of teaching required for medical education research and careers in medical education. This paper describes our expanding faculty development activities at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) that have culminated in the development and implementation of an innovative Online Master's Degree in Education program. Working in collaboration with the University of Cincinnati College of Education, CCHMC developed an Online Master's Degree in Education program targeting physicians and other health care professionals. The master’s program has proven to be an effective means of developing health care professionals’ educational pedagogy and skills as measured by program growth and outcomes of the participants. Medical institutions may approach faculty development through various methods, but the unique nature of online programs provides more flexible learning opportunities to nurture healthcare professionals beyond traditional programs.
Physician Contribution to Developing an Online Master’s Degree in Education Program for Health Care Professionals.
Kadriye O. Lewis,Raymond C. Baker
Journal of Educators Online , 2006,
Abstract: Online education is increasingly recognized by medical educators as a teaching and learning tool to support formal and continuing medical education. The faculty development team at Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) in collaboration with the University of Cincinnati College of Education (UCCOE) developed an Online Masters Degree in Education program designed to provide healthcare professionals with the educational pedagogy needed to teach more effectively and to conduct educational research. A qualitative case study describes the experiences of four physicians who completed the existing Master’s Degree in Education (Curriculum and Instruction major) in a combined in-class/online format. These physicians then helped customize the curriculum for medical education and adapt the program to an all-online format. Each participant benefited from the program in different ways (e.g. improved educational research methods, teaching and technology skills, assessment techniques, performance-based learning). The program introduced new concepts in education that the physician participants were able to adapt to medical education. All participants became more aware of their role as educators, and demonstrated increased understanding of teaching and learning concepts, including the many benefits of online learning for physicians with full-time professional responsibilities.
A New Method for Solving the Initial Value Problem with Application to Multiple Black Holes
John Baker,Raymond Stanley Puzio
Physics , 1998, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.59.044030
Abstract: This work consists of two distinct parts. In the first part we present a new method for solving the initial value problem of general relativity. Given any spatial metric with a surface orthogonal Killing field and two freely specified components of the extrinsic curvature we solve for extrinsic curvature's remaining components. For the second part, after noting that initial data for the Kerr spacetime can be derived within our formalism we construct data for axisymmetric configurations of spinning black holes. Though our method is limited to axisymmetry, it offers an advantage over the Bowen-York proceedure that our data approach those for Kerr holes in the limit of large separations and in the close limit.
On a weak form of weak quasi-continuity
C. W. Baker
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 2002, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171202109069
Abstract: A weak form of weak quasi-continuity, which we call subweak quasi-continuity, is introduced. It is shown that subweak quasi-continuity is strictly weaker than weak quasi-continuity. Subweak quasi-continuity is used to strengthen several results in the literature concerning weak quasi-continuity. Specifically, results concerning the graph, graph function, and restriction of a weakly quasi-continuous function are extended slightly. Also, a result concerning weakly quasi-continuous retractions is strengthened.
A note on -generalized closed sets
C. W. Baker
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 2001, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171201003945
Abstract: The purpose of this note is to strengthen several results in the literature concerning the preservation of θ-generalized closed sets. Also conditions are established under which images and inverse images of arbitrary sets are θ-generalized closed. In this process several new weak forms of continuous functions and closed functions are developed.
Decomposition of openness
C. W. Baker
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1994, DOI: 10.1155/s016117129400058x
Abstract: In this note weak openness and almost openness are used to develop two decompositions of openness. Two additional conditions related to openness also are developed.
-R-continuous functions
C. W. Baker
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1994, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171294000116
Abstract: A strong form of continuity, called -R-continuity, is introduced. It is shown that -R-continuity is stronger than R-continuity. Relationships between -R-continuity and various closed graph properties are investigated. Additional properties of -R-continuous functions are established.
On -C-open sets
C. W. Baker
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1992, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171292000322
Abstract: The properties of the collection of complements of -closures of sets in a topological space are investigated in this paper. A strong continuity condition is defined in terms of these sets. Some applications to H-closed spaces and Katetov spaces are given.
Subcontra-continuous functions
C. W. Baker
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1998, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171298000027
Abstract: A weak form of contra-continuity, called subcontra-continuity, is introduced. It is shown that subcontra-continuity is strictly weaker than contra-continuity and stronger than both subweak continuity and sub-LC-continuity. Subcontra-continuity is used to improve several results in the literature concerning compact spaces.
Characterizations of some near-continuous functions and near-open functions
C. W. Baker
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1986, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171286000856
Abstract: A subset N of a topological space is defined to be a -neighborhood of x if there exists an open set U such that x ¢ U ¢ …C1 ¢ € ‰ ¢ € ‰ ¢ € ‰U ¢ …N. This concept is used to characterize the following types of functions: weakly continuous, -continuous, strongly -continuous, almost strongly -continuous, weakly ′-continuous, weakly open and almost open functions. Additional characterizations are given for weakly ′-continuous functions. The concept of -neighborhood is also used to define the following types of open maps: -open, strongly -open, almost strongly -open, and weakly ′-open functions.
