About the Book

The Education Theory Made Practical series aims to make the theoretical underpinnings of education psychology come alive for health professions teachers, who are seeking to use theory to inform their clinical and classroom teaching.

About our Process

As part of the 2016-17 Faculty Incubator program, each 3-person team authored a primer on a key education theory on the International Clinician Educator (ICE) blog. These posts were published serially over a 10-week period. Each post featured a key educationally-relevant theory by starting with a vignette that situated the theory. Following this vignette, there was an explanation, a short history of the theory, and an annotated bibliography for further reading. To ensure high quality, we then asked the #MedEd and #FOAMed online communities to join us in peer-reviewing these posts. After incorporating many of the peer review comments, each blog post was converted into a book chapter within this first volume of a series of books for budding clinician-educators – the Education Theory Made Practical series.
