Cardiff Centre for Medical Education (C4ME) 2017 Seminar Series
Novel Approaches in Healthcare Education
In a world in which students readily have access to information, the value of a content-transfer model in higher education is being challenged. Educators are beginning to think of themselves as curators. We bring together interesting materials in juxtapositions that encourage students to be innovative and more engaged in their learning. Drawing on the experience of teaching humanities within a STEMM environment, this talk will share insights from successful strategies – often using playful learning – to enhance key transferable skills such as creativity and tolerance of ambiguity.
Giskin Day is a principal teaching fellow at Imperial College London. She coordinates over 30 interdisciplinary courses in the humanities as part of the Imperial Horizons programme offered to all Imperial College students, and is a course director for a new BSc in Medical Sciences with Humanities, Philosophy & Law.
