What do we mean by theory, and how can using a theoretical perspective or a conceptual framework improve the quality of our medical educational research?

Concerning this where are we with medical education scholarship in the UK? What can we learn from our international colleagues?

What theories have I used and why. There will be an opportunity for discussion and sharing of mistakes learnt and best practice.

Concluding with a summary of how Sandra sees medical education research and scholarship developing.
