Plenary Discussion: Transforming learning, transforming practice
Date: 9 November 2018 Time: 1.45pm - 3.15pm
Three distinguished speakers will provide their perspectives on transforming learning, transforming practice.
How students learn ”The last 20 years have seen an increase in our understanding of how students learn. These ideas have matured now to an extent that they are directly applicable to the teaching and the learning in higher education. This interactive lecture will outline and illustrate three principles of learning and their translation into instruction.” Prof Henk Schmidt
Augmentedclinicalintelligence–anewerainhealthcare “Its time to transform healthcare with new ways of working to improve approaches to care, productivity and well-being. AI systems understand, reason and learn – helping to translate information into knowledge that can help drive more informed decision-making. With AI, we can see and analyse more data than ever before – and achieve more than we ever thought possible.” Ms Farhana Nakhooda
That’snotwhatrealpatientsvalue–whyweneedtoconnectrealandsimulatedpatients “We need to connect real patients with simulated patients (SPs). Simulated patient (SP) methodology is well established and can support learning and assessments about patient-centred care. I’ll share what might be done to ensure that SPs represent those after whom they’re named, that simulations are truly patient-centred.” Prof Debra Nestel

Plenary Discussion: The medical student experience overseas: who benefits?
Date: 10 November 2018 Time: 3.15pm - 4.30pm
Synopsis: Many medical students take an interest in the global interplay of health and illness. A growing number seek out first-hand experience of public health initiatives and clinical practice away from their home country and institution, whether through formal clinical electives or community projects. Should medical schools be endorsing or formalising these experiences? What are the potential practical, social and ethical challenges, and who benefits? Are there other more appropriate ways for students to learn about global health? Join our panelists for an interactive discussion which will address these questions from student and faculty perspectives.
Panellists: Prof Dame Parveen Kumar, A/Prof Thum Kam Ying, Prof Helen Ward, Mr Paras Bajaj, Ms Yu Meng Li. Moderator: Prof James Best
