UCL Medical School seminar examines ‘learning through experience’
11 September 2012
UCL Medical School invites you to a seminar on October 11th entitled ‘Learning through experience: a fresh look at an old idea’.
Led by Dr Viv Cook of QMUL’s Institute for Health Sciences Education, the seminar will examine the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of work-based learning in education, considering the ways in which using socio-cultural models to conceptualise clinical settings as learning environments can inform medical education and the development of early career teachers.
As UCL Special Collections is the locational theme for 2012-2013, the seminar will be held in the Pilot Hub space of the Cruciform Library. The space has recently been redesigned to test new group study and ‘grand round’-style tutorial areas, incorporating prototype furniture.
Before the main presentation, Dr Tabitha Tuckett from UCL Special Collections will give an introductory talk on some of the methods used to teach Victorian medical students, and highlight some fascinating material from the archives.
‘Learning through experience: a fresh look at an old idea’ runs from 4pm-7pm on October 11th 2012 in the Cruciform Hub on Gower Street. Admission is free but places are limited.
