This unit will give participants the opportunity to integrate their knowledge of educational theory, assessment and evaluation while developing, with constructive feedback, educational initiatives that individuals can justify as most appropriate in their own educational role, e.g. new ways of bedside-teaching, lecture delivery, initiating small group work, redeveloping an examination or assessment package.


On completion of this unit participants will be able to:

  1. complete a reflective analysis of their educational practice in a specific context.
  2. review own practice in light of the educational literature in the field.
  3. identify and describe an educational initiative related to the participant's own practice, through critical analysis of course documentation, course evaluation, or through student feedback or assessment data.
  4. design and evaluate a new, or modify an existing course or educational programme based on current educational theory.
  5. critique and frame appropriate feedback on educational innovations and proposals for change.
  6. create a report based on the initiative to address all elements of the curriculum innovation.
