Tips and Considerations for Scholarship, Evaluations and Educational Research on Covid-19 Teaching Strategies
As part of our educational roles, we will all be familiar with the good practice of routinely evaluating our own teaching interventions/ innovations to inform our own teaching methods. Given that significant adaptations and changes to teaching have been forced upon us, we have to think about how we might evaluate or research the efficacy of our new approaches in the current climate. In this webinar, Dr Scott will outline the approaches you can put in place to provide some meaningful feedback or action research principles you can apply on your teaching initiatives, ranging from very basic to more advanced.

First Plenary Session
What is……Disruption Defined and Demonstrated……
What does disruption really mean in medical and health education? Often we think of disruption as a negative connotation but strategic disruption brings about innovation or even positive change in the process and outcome. What are the different forms of disruption? Does the rapid advancement of technology bring about a positive effect of disruption in the face of increasing rate of knowledge expansion? What are good examples of disruptive innovation in health professions education?
