Learning to teach with your peers in small groups
This module is designed for all health care professionals, who have knowledge of critical appraisal and experience in practicing evidence-based health care, and who want to explore issues around teaching. Students will learn in small groups and be facilitated to practice and develop their skills in teaching evidence-based practice. Participants will also learn educational strategies to develop a curriculum and design evaluation.
By the end of this module students will:
- Formulate clear answerable questions and teach on this subject
- Understand search strategies and be familiar with different resources
- Teach an aspect of critical appraisal effectively and with confidence
- Understand the range of study designs and appraisals techniques required to teach evidence-based health care
- Teach an aspect of biostatistics in health care
- Understand the components of an effective curriculum for evidence-based practice
Teaching will be addressed through the exploration of different educational models for teaching evidence-based practice and identification and discussion of issues of pedagogy, curriculum design development and maintenance. The aim will be to promote the teaching of evidence-based health care at your home institution
Personal Development will be addressed by offering guidance and help in extending and advancing participants' existing critical appraisal and teaching skills.

Most of the module is conducted as a workshop, with a strong element of small group work in which participants will develop and test their own EBM packages. Plenary sessions will present and discuss general issues in planning, executing, and evaluating EBM, and will demonstrate large-group strategies for teaching EBM. Searching and study time will be provided each day, and informal social events will encourage free discussion and the establishment of ongoing links.
Materials and Preparation
Participants will receive EBM packages in diagnosis, prognosis, therapy/prevention, quality of care, systematic reviews, and economic analysis appropriate to their fields of health care, plus background readings, a core EBM textbook and software tools to help practice and teach EBM. You will benefit most from the module if you bring your own EBM packages for testing in simulated teaching situations.
