Teaching Evidence Based Decision Making: MELT disciplinary perspectives

In the build-up to the International Conference on Models of Engaged Learning and Teaching (I-MELT) 11-13 December 2017 we will feature papers on a variety of themes, and run webinars by groups from different states on these themes.

The two papers attached are on the theme of Evidence Based Decision Making:

Transforming teaching practices: A model to conquer Evidence Based Decision Making skills

Evidence Based Decision Making_SA4Oct:.

The authors are from 4 Higher Education Institutions and a School, all in South Australia.

And…

Katie Piper from Monash University.

The South Australian group is also running a webinar on this theme Friday 6 October for 1 hour:
1.00 pm Eastern Daylight time
12.00 pm Eastern Standard time

12.30 pm Central Daylight time
10.00 am WA
(+10.30 GMT/Universal time)

Read the abstracts of the attached papers in advance of the webinar to be warmed up, so you can MELT in the webinar and find ways to MELT your classes.

Three questions that I am interested in your perspective on: how much difference in approach to evidence based decision making is there between disciplines or even within a discipline? What about differences in approach to teaching and learning EBDM? How useful are the shared parameters of MELT  for sensible conversations about EBDM approaches?
