Department of Medical Education builds connections with Canada

Professor Liz Molloy from the Department of Medical Education spent the month of April in Canada this year as an invited scholar.

Professor Molloy spent five days at the Centre for Health Education Scholarship (CHES) at University of British Columbia in Vancouver, and then flew to Niagara Falls, Ontario for the Canadian Conference on Medical Education (CCME).

Professor Molloy joined Rachel Ellaway, Chris Watling, Brett Schrewe, and Joanna Bates (in absentia) for the Research Symposium on Researching the intersection of workplace learning and contexts in clinical training.

The same presenting team ran a workshop the following day exploring 'transitions in clinical training' including the role of priming learners for how to identify embedded daily learning opportunities in clinical contexts.

After the conference, Professor Molloy spent two days at the Centre for Education Research and Innovation (CERI) in London, Ontario with colleagues including Lorelei Lingard and Chris Watling, with the last stop featuring Dalhousie University with Anna McLeod in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Professor Molloy presented her research on student feedback literacy, and discussed with researchers different design approaches to classroom, simulation and workplace education to promote interprofessional learning and practice.

On the final leg of the trip she drove to Acadia University, Wolfville, in the North of Nova Scotia where her late father was a visiting scholar in the early 1970s.
