Use the Microsoft Word version of the Lesson Plan Proforma on Moodle to complete your lesson plan. There is also a PDF version of the Lesson Plan Proforma available on Moodle with attached instructions to guide you in presenting your lesson plan.
The lesson plan should:
  • Identify the topic from your specialty on which you will educate your learner.
  • Categorise the learner/audience characteristics to be considered in lesson delivery. The learner may be a simulated colleague/student nurse/patient.
  • Identify the context of delivery.
  • Identify the learning outcomes (maximum 5) of the education session using Bloom’s Taxonomy (see references below).
  • Outline the content of the education session.

PART B: Essay

Weighting: 25%
Length: 1000 words

You are writing an academic essay that requires you to reflect on and critique your education session. You should demonstrate critical thinking supported by the existing literature, particularly literature on educational theoretical frameworks. Select one educational theoretical framework that resonates with you to underpin your teaching approach and guide your critique and reflection.

You may choose to apply more than one educational theoretical framework but you will need to justify the use of multiple frameworks and ensure that the essay flows.

Your essay should introduce the reader to your chosen educational theoretical framework and explain how the components of your framework have guided your education session. 

The content of the essay should:

  • Include an introduction, body and conclusion
  • Identify your topic and the context of the clinical education. It is important that you discuss the context of your teaching to support your choice of framework.
  • Analyse your educational theoretical framework and justify how it supports your approach to teaching in the clinical setting.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of your clinical education session.
  • Reflect on what you have learned from the experience and what you would do differently, if anything, next time.
  • Critically review the literature relevant to your educational theoretical framework.
  • The discussion should be substantiated with reference to the contemporary literature (last 10 years), with no less than 12 peer reviewed journals cited to support the discussion.
  • The essay should conclude with a summary of how your educational theoretical framework is reflected in your lesson plan and teaching session.
Literature and references

In this assessment use at least 12 contemporary journal articles (<10 years) to support your discussion. You may also use seminal scholarly literature where relevant. Additional suitable references include textbooks and credible websites. When sourcing information, consider the 5 elements of a quality reference: currency, authority, relevance, objectivity, and coverage. Grey literature sourced from the internet must be from reputable websites such as from government, university, or peak national bodies: for example, the Australian College of Nursing.

Requirements

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
