This chapter describes activity theory (AT) and its emerging role within health professions education (HPE). We outline AT’s historical roots, before exploring its concepts and theoretical models in detail. We then describe its practical applications in HPE, in both analysis and intervention, before concluding with a discussion of its rich future possibilities.
