MEU9013 will provide participants with the opportunity to integrate their knowledge
of educational theory, assessment and evaluation while developing, with constructive feedback, educational initiatives appropriate to their own educational roles e.g. new ways of bedside teaching, lecture delivery, initiating small group work, redeveloping an examination or assessment package. Each participant's project will be individually supervised.


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 their own practice in light of the educational literature in the field;
  3. identify and describe an educational initiative related to their own practice, through

critical analysis of course documentation, course evaluation, or through student feedback or assessment data;

  1. design and evaluate a new, or modify an existing course or educational programme

based on current educational theory;

  1. create a report based on the initiative to address all elements of the curriculum

innovation and its evaluation in relation to the literature.
