Summary of Content: This module examines the challenges of teaching in clinical or workplace-based environments for medical educators. The module draws on insights from the broader literature in education, leadership, management, psychology and sociology applied to a medical or healthcare professions education context.
An educational approach based on self-regulated learning theory for supporting individuals study in a VUCA environment is proposed with opportunities for students to critically apply their new understanding by designing new teaching or learning inventions. The various environments for students to apply this approach in practice include out-of-hours community care, the interfaces between primary and secondary care; and acute care or emergency departments including mental health units.
