Interactive student education seminar

  • Date: Wednesday 7 June 2017
  • Time:: 13:00 to 14:00
  • Venue:: Roger Stevens Lecture Theatre 18

AN INTERACTIVE seminar focusing on defining ‘excellence’ in student education will be led by an award-winning academic.

Professor Prem Kumar, Director of Education at College of Medical & Dental Sciences at the University of Birmingham, will lead the event: ‘I don’t know what it is but I’ll recognise it when I see it – What’s the E in TEF?’.

Prof Kumar will share his own thoughts on how we define ‘excellence’ in student education and give an insight into his own experiences in promoting active learning in biomedical student education through use of app-based technology.

He was awarded the Otto Hutter Teaching Prize by the Physiological Society in 2015.

This LICAMM TENet student education seminar will be jointly hosted with the University of Leeds Bioscience Education Research Group (ULBERG) and requires no registration. Attendees are urged to bring their smartphone.
