Education and Pedagogy Consortium

EPC lttrhd-final-04282020

ACAPT's Education and Pedagogy Consortium focuses on exploring and promoting best practices of pedagogy and education by providing an avenue for member institutions to collaborate and discuss teaching methodology/processes, educational assessment methods and outcomes, and scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) related to physical therapy education.


Our objectives are to support ACAPT's mission of excellence in physical therapy education by:

  • Producing a number of best practice deliverables related to education methods, processes, and assessment in physical therapy education.
  • Facilitating the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning throughout physical therapy education member institutions.
  • Promoting cross-institutional Scholarship of Teaching and Learning to help all members discuss, revise, and refine best practices.
  • Disseminating cooperative findings to all ACAPT member institutions
  • Facilitating discussion on best practices to meet and exceed CAPTE criteria which may contribute to a common set of program objectives.

The Education & Pedagogy Consortium members are reading Small Teaching Online by Flower Darby & James Lang - and the consortium holds virtual book club discussions periodically.
