New education fair at Health intends to inspire and share knowledge

Come and hear about the new ideas your colleagues have for their teaching. A new annual education fair gathers together the many initiatives that are underway at Health to further develop teaching and study programmes. The education fair will be held for the first time on 13 December 2016 and will provide inspiration for lecturers, teaching staff and directors of studies.

There are many lecturers and other teaching staff at Health, and they are continuously introducing new initiatives to improve and develop both the teaching and the study programmes. But often only their closest colleagues hear of the new initiatives or experience they gain. For this reason, lecturers and other teaching staff, members of the boards of studies and of the employer panels, as well as students, are invited to an education fair, where there will be time to exchange experiences and be inspired by the initiatives taken by others.

"We have recently held status reviews for all of the study programmes at Health, where we heard about the very many good initiatives that are being taken all over the faculty. We think it would be a good idea to share this knowledge with more people," says Vice-dean for Education at Health, Charlotte Ringsted. She has therefore launched the new education fair together with the directors of studies at Health.

The plan is for the education fair to be an annual event. Everyone with an interest in health science study programmes is welcome, regardless of whether they are part of Health or not.

Presentation from Canadian keynote speaker on admission tests

The education fair features an international keynote speaker, Dr. Kulasegaram from The Wilson Centre for Research in Health Science Education, University of Toronto, Canada, which is one of the world's leading centres for research into health science degree programmes. He will talk about his research and practical experience with admission tests and the multiple mini-interview method, which has e.g. recently been introduced in the quota 2 entrance examination for the medical degree programme.

The presentation is of interest to others who are considering increasing quota 2 admissions or introducing entrance examinations or commencement of studies exams for degree programmes, and who are looking for methods to select the most motivated students in a fair manner.

In addition, there will be speed-presentations and posters from lecturers and students at Health.
