Teaching, Challenges and Innovation

The School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine hosted its sixth annual Teaching, Challenges and Innovation Symposium on Wednesday December 1, 2021. These symposia provide our staff with a chance to share and learn new approaches and evidence-based practices in medical education, and to share experiences and knowledge around the integration of emerging technologies into our teaching practice.

They are our flagship educational professional development events, and ensure a sustainable, high-quality learning experience for our students now and into the future.

This year’s Symposium took a deep dive into SPHPM’s current educational offerings and its outlook for 2022 and beyond. Reflecting on two years of largely online learning, the Symposium also looked with hope towards a return to more traditional modes of teaching, and opportunities to integrate the best of both worlds.

Guest speaker Professor Wayne Hodgson, Deputy Dean (Education) discussed teaching direction from the Faculty’s perspective, while Professor Claire Palermo gave an insight into her own vision for teaching as the freshly appointed Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching).

Within the School, Deputy Head of School (Education) Professor Danny Liew joined Associate Professor Claire Harrison of the Department of General Practice and challenged us to reflect on how we can strengthen collaboration and evolve our approach to undertaking better educational practice.
