ASME’s Educator Development Committee (EDC) seeks to support and promote the personal and professional development of healthcare educators of all disciplines and to disseminate good practice in medical education.
The ASME EDC Education Innovation Awards have been developed to highlight, promote and disseminate examples of innovative educational practice in healthcare professionals’ education. The value of this award is up to a maximum of £1,000 towards professional development expenses and one free registration for the ASME ASM.
The ASME EDC Education Innovation Awards are aimed at providing funding for an individual educator or team of educators to develop an educational innovation that demonstrates originality, is of practical significance, is applicable to educators in other centres and which may fill a gap in pedagogy. Options might include (but are not limited to) novel curriculum or assessment approaches, instructional materials development or learning support activities. The educational innovation projects are likely to be short-term projects and the funding is to allow an individual educator to develop the project; longer-term research projects will not normally be funded but successful innovation projects may lead on to future research work.
The EDC is pleased to announce the 2020 awards and invites applications from members of ASME.
Judging will be undertaken by three members of the core EDC. This will be against thecriteria below. It is highly recommended that applications address each of these aspects;
- novelty of the project
- degree of collaborative working
- proposed methodology
- potential reproducibility of the innovation across specialisms
- potential impact of the innovation
- the overall quality of the submission
In addition please indicate in your application how the monies will be spent. The award will specifically target those projects where other sources of funding are unlikely to be available.
Successful applicants will be expected to present an oral paper on the innovation at the ASM during the EDC “Innovative, interesting and prize-winning work” forum. (ASM to be held in Warwick, UK, July 2021).
Up to two awards are available annually.
Applications are invited from ASME members in the form of a 1,000 word description (excluding references) of the innovation in word format.
Deadline for 2020 applications is 5pm, 5th November 2020.
