Aspire - Recognition of Excellence in Education

Education alongside Research as the Mission of a Medical, Dental and Veterinary School

Free Webinar: What is excellence in medical education? The ASPIRE Programme


There is increasing acceptance of the need to recognise, alongside excellence in research in medical schools, international excellence in education. In this webinar Professor Harden will explore the concept of excellence in education and look at excellence in three areas: student engagement in the curriculum and in the medical school; social responsibility and accountability; and assessment of students, and describes the ASPIRE programme. The ASPIRE-to-excellence initiative was established to go beyond the traditional accreditation process and to recognise that the education programme in a medical school can be subjected to peer review against an agreed set of standards or benchmarks that identify world-class excellence in education. The ASPIRE initiative encourages and promotes outstanding performance and excellence in education.

Two presentations will be made on Tuesday 18 February 2014 at 09.00 and 16.00 GMT (UK time). Each presentation will last approximately one hour.
