Dr Karen Walshe awarded funding for 'PROTEACH' project

Congratulations to Dr Karen Walshe, a core CRPL member, who has been awarded EU ‘Erasmus-Plus’ funding to undertake a project called ‘PROTEACH’ in collaboration with partners in Israel, Romania, Estonia and Austria.  The project aims to explore the experiences of beginning teachers as they transition to their new teaching roles, in order to create an effective induction model for newly qualified teachers that recognises the fresh perspective and contribution that early career professionals have to offer, and emphasises the important relationship between the graduating university and school employer.  The data collection (involving 450 participants in total), and piloting of an induction framework, will occur mostly in Israel.  The role of the Exeter academics involved will be to guide and contribute to the research planning and resources, undertake workshops in UK HEIs, and support dissemination.

 

Guest blog: The Silent Mentor programme

The Silent Mentor programme: an alternative approach to learning anatomy and surgery

Earlier this year Karen Mattick visited Lynn Monrouxe in Taiwan to explore links between our research centre and the Chang Gung Medical Education Research Centre. 

During the trip they visited the Silent Mentor programme in Tzu Chi University, Hualien, East Taiwan, which is a Buddhist institution, based on humanistic principles. The Silent Mentor programme is an embodiment of those principles. They described the programme and the research questions stimulated by the visit on the ASME blog.

CRPL are holding regular discussion sessions, known as Research Teas, throughout the 2017/18 academic year. The sessions begin with a short introduction on a theme from a member of the group and then open up for discussion. No powerpoint or handouts etc are used, it is just informal discussion.  Please do join us for what we hope will be fruitful and interesting dicussions.  Bring along a hot drink with you and we will provide the cake.  All are welcome to attend.

The Research Teas take place from 3.30 - 5.00pm.  Please see the events listing below for further details.
