Interprofessional Education


Students As Partners, Not Just Learners

Speakers: Mr Numair Shahpur, Mr Ibrahim Habib, Prof Charles Docherty and Mr Burhan Ali
Date: 25 October 2019 (Fri)  | Time: 1320 - 1450 Location: Academia, Level 2, L2-T2


One of the ways to optimise the use of simulation clinical centres is by reworking the traditional understanding of the relationship between an educator and students. This workshop provides insight into working with students as the main “customers” of the Clinical Simulation Centre and converting them into invaluable “partners” in the development of clinical simulation. With reference to the Centre for Innovation in Medical Education, Aga Khan University (AKU), Pakistan, the workshop will offer perspectives into teaching and learning methodologies, continuous two-way feedback, interprofessional engagement, empowerment of students, influence over curriculum change, research and community work. 


Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand the benefits of having students as “partners” and not just passive stakeholders in clinical simulation;
  2. Understand how creating a relationship between educators and students improves the delivery of simulated scenarios;
  3. Develop an environment conducive to open and effective communication between students, educators and administrators;
  4. Understand the challenges for interprofessional simulation and they can be overcome by developing an interprofessional platform at student level.
