Faculty Learning and Teaching workshop

The Faculty held a Learning and Teaching workshop on 22 November 2013. The workshop, attended by eight colleagues, was one in a series of events promoting the scholarship of learning and teaching in the Faculty.

The focus of the workshop was student engagement and student centred approaches.  Colleagues explored their own and others' experiences of promoting student engagement, sharing both problems and strategies for successful teaching. We then related our experiences to learning theories before discussing interdisciplinary examples of teaching at the cutting edge of practice.

Peter Draper
The workshop was facilitated by two of the University's National Teaching Fellows, Dr Peter Draper, Academic Lead for Staff Development (FHSC), and Dr Graham Scott, Deputy Head, Department of Biological, Biomedical and Environmental Sciences.
Graham Scott
The next event in the learning and teaching series will be a seminar by Dr John Unsworth of Northumbria University on the 6th of December who will present on 'Transforming the Assessment of Practice in Nursing'. This will be followed on 25th of February by Professor Phil Keeley (Manchester University) will give a paper entitled 'Seeking Recognition and Reward for Teaching and                                                 Learning'.

The workshops and seminars are supported by a grant from

Mike Parker, Lecturer in Clinical Nursing 

This week Mike completed the Advanced Trauma Nursing Course (ATNC)/Advanced Trauma Life Support Course (ATLS)  in association with the Royal College of Surgeons of England and the American College of Surgeons. The course candidates are doctors and nurses of a senior level working in trauma care.

Mike obtained 93% in his written exam and received an outstanding performance in his OSCE and was consequently nominated for Instructorship. He will have to complete the Royal College of Surgeons of England Instructor Course and teach on one course as an Instructor Candidate after which he will be able to register as an ATNC Instructor.

Of his recent success, Mike says:

"It is a real privilege to be asked and I am delighted. I now have the 'hat trick' in terms of instructorship as I am a Resuscitation Council (UK) instructor for Adult and Paediatric Advanced Life Support and once I have completed the ATNC/ATLS as an Instructor Candidate I will also be a Trauma Instructor.:
