Teaching abstract



Prepare an abstract for your teaching program. An abstract of your teaching program is a summary written in a scholarly writing style that represents a clear picture of a teaching program.

Purpose: The abstract will be based on the beginning development for your assessment 2 item, where you will be developing and preparing a teaching plan for a clinical education program (please read the outline of assessment 2 for further information). The teaching plan template (in assessment 2 folder) will direct you in developing up the teaching plan that you’re abstract will be based on. The abstract should provide details on the purpose of your teaching program, the type of learning environment, the audience or learners at which your program is aimed, and the objectives of your teaching program. You will be given formative feedback on your abstract that you can use in Assessment 2

The function of an Abstract is to inform the reader of the contents of the program so that the reader can see in advance the key areas covered and the main points, so it will provide a brief, descriptive summary of your teaching plan. The introduction sets up the context of your chosen education topic, the reasons that this education is necessary (outline of main points) and may provide some background information (orientation to the topic). Abstracts are usually quite succinct and vary in length. For the purposes of this activity, you have a word limit of 500 words

Background and Purpose of teaching program – Set a context for the topic. What problem, question, or hypothesis is going to be covered? Why would it be of interest?
