Faculty shares ideas on health education
A small but enthusiastic group of about 40 attended the Faculty of Health Sciences' first Education Research Day, themed Transformation in Education, held on March 16. Associate Professor Gonda Perez, deputy dean: education, opened the day with a paper on the progress made and challenges that lie ahead in curriculum transformation of the undergraduate medical and health and rehabilitation programmes. Over the day, eight papers, several posters and three workshops explored various facets of transformation and change in areas of education. Among the topics covered were curriculum methodology; the assessment of students; the recruitment, selection and placement of students; and students' perceptions and experiences. The day ended with directors of schools in the faculty and HODs in adult medicine briefly presenting their visions on health sciences education over the next ten years. Sessions were facilitated by medical and health and rehabilitation sciences staff. Professor Marietjie de Villiers, deputy dean: education at the University of Stellenbosch, also lead a session.
