The Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences is proud to present the 3rd Biennial Education Research Symposium on Thursday 21 May 2015.

The Symposium aims to enrich the teaching and learning experience by providing student researchers and staff an opportunity to share their research ideas, projects and best practices in areas of medical and health professional education across all schools in the Faculty.

The event will be a prelude to the annual Faculty Excellence in Teaching Awards Ceremony, and in the same spirit of the awards, will provide an opportunity to explore themes of mutual interest in a community of educators whilst recognising the accomplishments of students and staff.

We encourage staff and students who are involved in educational research to take this opportunity to  present your work with the wider Faculty community, develop your presentation skills and receive feedback on your research from your peers. Abstracts can be submitted at the online link below.

Thank you to all students and staff who submitted abstracts for this event. The call for abstracts is now closed.
