Advanced Teaching Clinical Epidemiology (CEPI5207)


This unit aims to further participants knowledge and skills in teaching clinical epidemiology - at an advanced level. Participants have the opportunity to develop their own teaching modules based upon the modules they have been exposed to in the Clinical Epidemiology Program at the University of Sydney. There is no additional face-to-face teaching. Participants are expected to develop, teach and evaluate a clinical epidemiology module of at least 9 hours teaching time. They are also expected to nominate a topic in the area of Teaching Clinical Epidemiology and explore the area in an essay. By the end of this unit participants will have developed, delivered and evaluated a teaching module in Clinical Epidemiology by: developing materials about clinical epidemiology relevant to the target audience and setting; developed a method of teaching which is relevant to the target audience and setting; developing and using an assessment tool appropriate for the teaching module; developing and using a method of evaluation appropriate for the teaching module; explored, through an essay, an academic area of interest in Teaching Clinical Epidemiology.
