Course Level: Doctoral

Course Type: Masters


Course Open to: all

Institution:Oregon Health & Science University

Pre-requisites: N/A

Course Description: This course is designed to look at healthcare and science from a scholarly personal narrative perspective. The scholarly personal narrative (SPN) process has gained traction within the academic sciences because it incorporates a critical evaluation of topics and yet combines a personal perspective when reflecting upon our interpretation of the topic no matter the scholarly domain the topic is derived. It is because we all bring our own lens to any given topic that this work is crucial to understanding ourselves and others. Our experiences in life mold our perspectives in both positive and negative ways. When we explore both new and old topics, we inherently bring our perspectives with us and this can shape how we few any given issue. This concept has its foundation in a post-modern perspective of the world. We see the world from our vantage point. Exploring topics from our perspectives and bias when brought forward into a safe and exploratory environment, one can learn to see how our way of seeing things can be informed by the manner in which others see things. Through dialogue and discussion, we can learn to see the manner in which others live their own experiences through their interpretation of a topic.
