Are we socially accountable educators?
Social accountability has been described as being made up of good governance, empowerment of people for improved delivery to the poor. THEnet evlauation framework offers an instrument by which to measure this social accounatbility for health science education institutions. There is little which speaks to the individual practitioner or educator. Transformational teaching and learning demands that we teach for development. A good way is for us to reflect on how we work, what we do and what difference we make.
