In this episode, Ben and Michael speak to Shane Pritchard about using the concept of a ‘grand narrative’ to structure a simulation programme at scale, across multiple disciplines, in schools of health and social care. We’re all familiar with simulation-based activities within, and maybe even across, disciplinary programmes. But what would it take to build a simulation programme across an entire school?
In this episode, we discuss the implications of generative AI on assessment, and on learning and teaching more broadly. This was a wide-ranging conversation that explored some of the detail around how language models work, it’s inability to compare responses to valid models of the world, practical uses for AI in teaching, learning, and assessment, and the risks of having AI being trained on data generated by AI.
In this episode of the In beta podcast, Joost van Wijchen explores the topic of student-led collaborative curriculum design. As part of the process, Joost interviewed physiotherapy lecturers and students, and shared some of his own experiences at two physiotherapy departments.
In this episode, Shane Pritchard, Ben and Michael talk about the increasing use of simulation in professional education, and ask if the definitions of what counts as simulation are being stretched beyond breaking point. We take a critical look at what we mean when we talk about simulation and explore how we might incorporate it into the curriculum.
In this guided reflection, Dave Nicholls asks what the future of physiotherapy education and practice might look like if the professions were no longer to occupy such prominent positions in healthcare.
