This session will engage our collective momentum for research on pediatric physical therapist (PT) education. It will bridge from recent Academy support of educational research to current efforts to achieve an evidence base for pediatric PT education. The speakers will begin with a review of the purpose and outcomes of Education Summit II, provide examples from other professions for the development of educational research priorities, and present preliminary outcomes of a consensus study to contribute to the development of broadly informed educational research priorities for the Academy. To propose a road map for educational research, this session will conclude with mini platform presentations to highlight the status of known active educational research within the Academy, including outcomes of the collaborative team research that extended from Education Summit II. Presenters will propose a road map to accelerate the path toward excellence in pediatric PT education.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Describe the Academy's recent efforts to advance pediatric PT education research.

2. Evaluate the consensus findings of pediatric PT education priorities as related to current pediatric PT education practice.

3. Discuss the progress and preliminary findings of the collaborative research that has emerged from Education Summit II related to (a) uptake of the pediatric essential competencies, (b) excellence in pediatric PT education, and (c) practice-based learning and student outcomes.

4. Synthesize the current status of evidence and known collaborative efforts to support a proposal of an educational research road map to accelerate the path toward excellence in pediatric PT education.
