The ‘Becoming an Effective Teacher’ module focuses on the attributes and capabilities of the 'effective teacher' and how you can acquire and develop these qualities.
This module gives you opportunity for you to develop as an educator through evaluation of your current practice.
You will need to have completed the Essentials of Clinical Education module prior to attending this module.
This module gives you the opportunity to undertake self-evaluation against frameworks and models attempting to describe effective teaching. This will allow you to gain insights into the processes which support the development of teaching expertise.
There is a focus on your own priorities (derived from self-evaluation) and on key contexts for practice (particular clinical settings, interprofessional education).
This module is designed for clinicians and health professionals and others who are involved in the delivery of medical education at either undergraduate or postgraduate level. All candidates must have experience in teaching and be currently actively involved in teaching activities in a healthcare context.
Before completing the course, you will undertake our Induction and Professional Development module, introducing you to all the underpinning regulations, guidance and support available to you during your postgraduate study.
