WORKSHOP: Embedding PebblePad into your Medical (or Health) Curriculum
Date and time: Wednesday 13th June 2018 13:00 - 17:00
Duration: 4 hours
Location: Sydney University, Australia
This hands-on workshop is for anyone who is using, or wanting to use, PebblePad within their Medical or Health-related curriculum. Building on the morning lecture, Paul will provide examples of the use of PebblePad across the medical curriculum at the University of Liverpool. He will then facilitate a series of activities that will provide participants with the opportunity to consider how PebblePad could be embedded into their own programs, drawing upon his experiences to identify and work through the possible challenges while maximising the potential benefits. This workshop will focus on some of the day-to-day learning design and administrative considerations associated with larger scale, program-wide eportfolio implementation.
NOTE: While Paul’s experience is within Medicine, many of the learning activities and assessment processes supported by PebblePad are equally relevant to other Health disciplines. Representatives from across Health Education are welcome to attend.
About Paul Duvall
Paul has 20 years of experience working in a variety of roles, and institutions, within the Higher Education sector in the UK. The constant theme running throughout all his professional roles has been the use of technology to enhance learning. He has experience working across many different disciplines and contexts including teacher training, healthcare and other vocational courses.
Over the last 5 years Paul has held an academic position at the School of Medicine within the University of Liverpool. This role provides academic and strategic leadership for the use of technology across the entire medical curriculum.
When Paul arrived in the School one of the strategic priorities initially identified was the requirement to record and manage medical student activity and development. This included activity both on campus and within a variety of external clinical environments. It was agreed that an eportfolio system had the potential to satisfy this requirement and Paul was tasked with the implementation of this project to coincide with a new medical curriculum launching in 2014.
