EPC Problem Submission

EPC Problem Submission
Contact: P3 EPC Reps, Scott.Myers@ucsf.edu; Peter.Nguyen@ucsf.edu

As your P3 EPC reps, Peter and Scott are proud to introduce a brand new method of submitting classroom problems on the fly: EPC Problem Submission

Have you ever complained about a poorly done articulate, mismatched PowerPoints, unclear course expectations, incorrect information, etc.? EPC wants to hear them all!

We have created a new quick submission system for your use. Our goal is to track and analyze ongoing or repeated problems in courses in order to address them with course directors. These problems can vary from small technology issues to systemic problems in course structure and learning objectives. Write as little or as much as you want to! We are especially looking for repeated problems so don’t be inhibited if you have submitted an identical issue before.

The EPC Problem Submission link can also be found on the ASSP Website, under Resources. We also highly encourage you to bookmark it!

Lastly, these problems can be completely anonymous. There are no required fields, but having your name is great in case follow-up is needed. This information will only be seen by EPC personal and deidentified aggregate data will be used in discussing solutions with faculty or future policy standardizations.

We really hope you will consider using it!

Thanks again!
Scott & Peter

More information is included on the Qualtrics Survey posted below. If you're not aware, take note that UCSF is moving to a campus-wide gender neutral bathroom policy by 2020 but the School of Nursing is trying to convert bathrooms in the Nursing Building sooner than that.
