Overview

The ABC of Learning and Teaching in Medicine is a fully revised, succinct resource for both novice and experienced medical teachers. It is an excellent introductory text for doctors and other health professionals starting out in their careers as well as offering teaching tips and new perspectives for busy practitioners wishing to keep abreast of developments in medical education.

The ABC emphasises the teacher’s role as a facilitator of learning rather than a transmitter of knowledge. It is designed to be practical and accessible and will support good teachers in becoming even better at what they do. Each chapter seeks to explain how different aspects of learning and assessment work, (the theory) as well as providing descriptions of educational approaches that work, (the practice).

This fully updated new edition features core medical education topics such as course design, assessment, learning in groups, feedback, and the creation of learning materials. It also includes invaluable new chapters that address many of the challenges of medical education such as dealing with students in difficulty, the teaching of professionalism in clinical settings, and how to support the development of teachers. Together, these chapters represent an authoritative guide written by a team of educational experts of international renown and is suitable for all health professional educators.
