Study Level: 

This research aims to identify the extent to which medical students’ reflective practice is developed and enhanced. The project will utilise advanced technologies to facilitate teaching, learning and educational assessment.

Skills Required: 

Good analytical skills; interest in behavioural change; good understanding of ICT (Internet & Communication Technologies); programming skills would be an advantage.


This project integrates knowledge from four disciplines: Teaching and Learning; Educational Assessment; Computing and Internet; and Behavioural Change. Experience and strong interest in at least one of these fields is desirable.

This topic is broad enough to incorporate a few, though more specific research projects.
