Event description

Description

GCU Will display a numbers of posters, focussing on innovation and the Student Experience. The posters will include:

“Understanding Perfectionism in Students: Hercules’ Muscle or Achilles’ Heel

Jane Mckay and Kim Williams (SHLS)

This poster will explore perfectionism in Physiotherapy students at GCU


“The benefits of Simulated activity in Learning”

Kim Allan (SHLS)

Theatre can often be perceived as an uncomfortable experience for the newly qualified radiographer due to the pressures of working with (often) demanding characters from the multidisciplinary team, whilst trying to effectively control radiation out with the normal controlled environment and simultaneously being cognisant of a sterile field. We attempt to introduce each part of this (clinical decision making, radiation protection and infection control) separately throughout each year by using the simulated environment for real world problem solving. This makes it a little easier to ‘eat the frog’ (a perceived unpleasant experience) one bite at a time; hopefully making this a more manageable task at the culmination of the course


“Personal Tutors and the Student Experience”

Kim Allan (SHLS)

TBC


“Peer Supported communities: a pilot”

Fiona Kennedy, Yvonne Wayne, Yetunde Ogedengbe, Nichola McLarnon and Helen Brown

Peer Supported Communities is a new initiative being piloted within the School of Health and Life Sciences. Peer Supported Communities is designed to give students in the School the chance to support each other throughout their degree, share ideas and experiences and get to know other students across all years of their degree programme.


Improving Student Engagement using Turning Point Polling Software: A Variety of Pedagogical Approaches Across Vision Sciences “

Laura Sweeney, Lorraine Cameron, Eilidh Martin

In Vision Sciences polling software has been used for a variety of purposes in recent years. Polling Software has been used to ensure learning objectives are met, to inform module development and to encourage students to develop critical thinking skills related to clinical practice. This poster presentation will discuss how polling software has successfully improved engagement during large group sessions and has fed into the module enhancement process.

Electronic Assessment with GCULearn: an Opportunity to Align Examinations with Student Career Goals

Andrew Logan (SHLS)

Electronic assessment offers an opportunity to objectively assess the clinical decision making skills required of graduate Optometrists within an authentic simulated environment. By monitoring key indicators during a period of transition from traditional, essay-based examinations to a novel e-assessment, this study demonstrates that students value the opportunity to demonstrate their learning within a meaningful assessment which has clear links to their chosen career. The introduction of e-assessment benefitted student achievement, student satisfaction, inclusivity and employability
