AACE Engagement Lounges
AACE Engagement Lounges are Zoom meetings focusing on topics relevant to the work of our members, especially how our work is being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Choosing and Using Standardized Measures to Evaluate Your Education Program - Tuesday, 29 June 2021, 3:00-4:30 PM EDT
This Engagement Lounge will be moderated by Education Committee Co-Chairs Georgia Robins Sadler, BSN, MBA, PhD, FAACE and Bret Hassel, PhD and will feature a conversation with
Dr. Vanessa Malcarne, Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California San Diego and Faculty at the UCSD Moores Cancer Center.
Vanessa Malcarne PhD is Professor of Psychology at San Diego State University, Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California San Diego, and Faculty at the UCSD Moores Cancer Center. She is currently the Director of the SDSU/UCSD Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, where she conducts research on quality of life in chronic illness, including cancer. Her research also focuses on the development and use of standardized measures in diverse populations.
All attendees will be involved in asking or responding to questions, but we will set a few basic rules such as enforcing mute for the majority of participants until they raise their hand and using the chat function. AACE staff members will be present to make sure all technical needs are addressed and the event runs smoothly. AACE will also be using Otter, a service that provides live AI-generated closed captioning for Zoom meetings.
We look forward to seeing you on 29 June 2021. Please send your topics for discussion and any questions you have about the event to firstname.lastname@example.org
