On the worktop, is a photo of a stack of blue and red books, with a laptop resting open against the pile of books. The image is on the right of the image, there is white text on the left that says “educator development award”, and a red button, with white text that says “apply now”. On the right, above the laptop image and in the navy background is ASME’s logo, and the EDC logo (educator development committee).

The ASME EDC Educator Development Awards are aimed at providing funding for an individual to further develop themselves as an educator. Options include (but are not limited to) travel to visit a host institution to gain experience in a specific type of teaching, travel to events or conferences, attendance at relevant courses or undertaking a specific educational development in a home institution. In allocating awards, the EDC will take account of the professional development of the individual and will specifically target those who are at an early or mid-stage of their educational career and where other sources of funding are unlikely to be available. Research projects will not be funded, nor will applications to register on certificate, diploma or masters courses. ASME particularly welcome applicants from diverse and under-represented backgrounds.

Award Information

The total annual value of available awards is £5,000 divided at the discretion of the EDC to maximise the awards impact. Typically at least two awards are made each year.

The EDC is pleased to announce the 2023 awards and invites applications from members* of ASME.

(*Individual members of ASME, and employees of organisations that are institutional members of ASME)

Infographic advertising the education innovation awards 2023. Collage of four photographs, two on the left, two on the right, and a central navy vertical strip, with the ASME/EDC logos, text “education innovation award”, and a red button that says “apply now” in white text. The top left image is a photograph of four people standing around an incubator with a baby in it. Three people are in blue nursing uniforms, and one person is in dark blue scrubs with a stethoscope around their neck and appears to be teaching. In the bottom left image, a man in an orange t-shirt and blue cardigan is writing on a whiteboard, and looking to the right of the image. In the top right image, there is a set of hands wearing white gloves, interlaced on the chest of a resuscitation doll. In the bottom right image, in what appears to be a dental setting, a woman in blue scrubs and white gloves interacts with a small child, who has his tongue stuck out with a blue mask pulled down around his chin.

 

The EDC is pleased to announce the 2023 Education Innovation Awards  and invites applications from members* of ASME. TheEducation Innovation Awards are aimed at providing funding for an individual educator or team of educators to develop an educational innovation. ASME particularly welcomes applicants from diverse and under-represented backgrounds. Applicants must be ASME members*.

(*Individual members of ASME, and employees of organisations that are institutional members of ASME) 

Award Information
The application must describe an innovation in education, which may be a novel idea, approach, system and/or method applied to healthcare education. All applications should describe 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. Innovations which are sustainable, inclusive and applicable across professional boundaries are particularly welcome.

The value of this award is up to a maximum of £1,000 towards professional development expenses and one free registration (for the day of presentation) at the ASME ASM. 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.

The educational innovation projects are likely to be short-term projects and the funding is to allow an individual educator/team to develop the project; longer-term research projects will not normally be funded but successful innovation projects may lead on to future research work.

Available funding: Maximum £1000.00 per award. Up to two awards are available annually.
