We develop short summaries (usually 10-15 pages) of concepts related to teaching and learning practices in the clinical context. Each article within the app is based on evidence and provides insight into teaching and learning strategies in the clinical context. The articles are developed from the ground up by domain experts, making use of peer-reviewed publications and open educational resources to deliver a concise summary of the topic being explored. Articles are comprehensive enough to give you a better understanding of the topic but concise enough to cover in one sitting. However, additional resources are also provided so that you can explore the topics in even more depth.
We currently have the following titles available, with more under active development:
- Peer review of teaching
- Small group teaching
- The Delphi approach for reaching consensus
- Writing a research paper
