Creation of a model, learner-focused, technology-integrated resource package to improve the student journey in health professions education

Project Leader - Dr Timothy Rennie, Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology

The project, which was funded by the Teaching Development Fund (TDF) Shape in 2021/22 aims to develop and demonstrate capacity for technological tools and processes for improving the learning process for work-based learners.

Postgraduate learning delivery for busy health professionals must be smooth and attractive to the learner to overcome the crowded competition of online/blended learning, maintain the reputation of the institution and ensure optimal outcomes. Reviewing and engaging with technology from a student perspective with academic/technical support, we will improve the student journey. This will be done through integration of new and existing learning technologies (Xerte, Camtasia, Pebblepad) through existing learning platform (Moodle) to reduce information redundancy, optimise presentation of content that suits broader learning engagement, and improve flow of the learners journey.

Proposing the creation of a model Programme Unit resource package to serve as an example of change across multiple programmes within the AP3T suite of programmes/units and beyond (i.e. how things can be done differently and improve our offering). Aiming to better student-facing model of learning; the student will work with a team of academic and technical staff and be supported throughout the project; will all develop through the process.

Through undertaking this project the team will map out the process to better understand the changes required including timelines to more effectively effect change across the suite of AP3T programmes.

Tim presented this project through an EduTalk in February 2024
