This module will offer students fundamental knowledge about the planning, implementing and evaluating of curricula and educational programmes. Although it can not impart a thorough pedagogic training it will provide the students with in-depth understanding of learning theories and their implications for curriculum development in midwifery education. Principles of adult learning and self directed learning will be discussed in relation to basic and further professional education. Planning, implementing and quality assurance of curricular processes will be explored. Supported by the module leader students will transfer this educational knowledge to the field of midwifery education. They will choose a topic of relevance for midwifery curricula design and critical reflect its implications. This module also offers the possibility for a critical reflection of own learning processes and approaches to life long learning and further education.
