10th International Conference on Practice Teaching and Field Education in Health and Social Work
University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, April 7th - 8th 2014
Creating connections, repairing disconnections
and building relationships in practice learning and field education
Special 10% discount for full AMED Members
This conference is for researchers, teachers and practitioners involved in developing and delivering practice-based learning in all health and social care professions in the UK and overseas. It should be of interest to AMED Members, because it is also an opportunity to bring together those who employ, support and work with practice educators, or who benefit from their expertise - especially health and care service users. There are also presentations from other fields that offer relevant transferable insights.
What inquiry questions will we address?
We will explore such questions as:
• How do we develop the relationship between academic research and teaching, and workplace learning and practice?
• How do we manage the transition from study to employment?
• How do we do all this in the context of:
• interprofessional education and the current emphasis on collaborative working;
• a time of great organisational change in health and social care?
Who are the conference sponsors?
The conference is sponsored by The Journal of Practice Teaching and Learning, published by Whiting and Birch Limited.
