Synopsis

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.
