Educational research seminars

The MCSHE Seminar Series provides a platform for sharing innovative health professions education research. Seminars are held monthly, local and international educational researchers are invited to share their scholarly work. This series includes webinars, micro-conference events (in collaboration with the University of Sydney and Flinders University) and methodological workshops. Through these seminars and workshops our aim is to improve the scholarship of health professions educational research in the Monash University FMNHS community. Throughout 2021 we will be providing access to these events by ZOOM video-conferencing .
