Dr. Marilyn Frenn and Mary Jo Wiemiller receive the 2015 Way Klingler Teaching Enhancement Award
Frenn and Wiemiller plan to use the $20,000 monetary part of the award to develop learning modules in Desire2Learn, Marquette’s e-Learning application.
MILWAUKEE – Dr. Marilyn Frenn, professor in the College of Nursing, and Mary Jo Wiemiller clinical assistant professor and chair of physician assistant studies in the College of Health Sciences, have been named the recipients of the 2015 Way Klingler Teaching Enhancement Award.
Frenn and Wiemiller collaborated on an award-winning project titled: “Developing and Implementing Interprofessional Education in the Health Sciences through a Collaborative Learning Approach.” The project’s goal is to teach students in health-related fields how to work together.
Frenn and Wiemiller plan to use the $20,000 monetary part of the award to develop learning modules in Desire2Learn, Marquette’s e-Learning application. The modules will be available for faculty and students to access and use for their own collaboration modules.
“The expectation in the clinical world is to function as part of a team,” says Wiemiller, who is still a certified physician assistant. “The only way that can be successful is if the players on the team understand each other’s roles and can communicate effectively in the best interest of the patient.”
Frenn and Wiemiller began the groundwork for this project after being appointed co-chairs of a task force charged to identify goals and develop strategies towards implementing the collaborative model. Their approach was to create a central resource hub to organize interprofessional educational activities and to act as a resource for faculty, giving them tools to engage in these activities themselves.
The Way Klinger Teaching Enhancement Award is intended to foster the development of effective and sustainable changes and innovations in teaching approaches within specific courses. This annual award is given to a team of two or more faculty to develop, implement and evaluate a specific teaching project.
