More than 100 colleagues tuned in for these annual awards which recognise excellence in teaching and learner support at an institutional level, including endeavour beyond the classroom or behind the scenes. Individuals and teams are recognised for identifying an issue or area for improvement or innovation. This year’s awards recognise the incredible effort and innovation in adapting to a blended learning offer in record time.
This team had originally planned to deliver human factors training in a summer school. However, as the programme attracts many overseas students, they needed to develop an online mechanism to deliver and develop these skills ensuring equity of access. The human factors training is fully integrated and means that the team can provide timely, module specific discussions to ground the theoretical nature of much of the content in practical application.
Dr Kristin Braun, Director of Education at the Blizard Institute, said: “Congratulations to the MSc Emergency and Resuscitation Medicine programme team for their well-deserved Education Excellence Award for integration of online human factors training. We are proud of the commitment of Blizard Institute colleagues to continuously develop innovative education strategies that enhance the student experience.”
