Within the School of Health and Education we believe that gaining an understanding into other professional roles and skills in a shared learning context can benefit inter-professional team-working in practice.
We have students studying health, nursing, social work, midwifery, teacher training, allied health care, and integrative medicine courses and our weekly Interprofessional Learning Symposia programme can provide a rich and deeper understanding of what different professionals have to offer within their respective sectors.
This dynamic series is now in its fourth year and it offers students and staff from across the disciplines studying within our school, as well as our external partners from practice (clinicians, social care staff, educators) an inter-professional learning opportunity.
Each session runs for an hour and a half at the end of the formal teaching day, starting at 4.00pm and participants come together to discuss, debate and update personal learning led by a key subject expert, on a range of relevant, often challenging themes.
The event learning materials and slides from each session are posted within the dedicated IPL section within MyLearning/my courses.
Sessions are advertised on Eventbrite and advanced booking is one month from the date of the event. Nursing and Midwifery students attending sessions will be able to log their participation as part of the mandatory IPL learning – please see your Programme Lead for details.
The programme of afternoon sessions presents a range of key topics representative of the health, social and educational subjects being taught, with invited experts both from within and outside of the university.
The full programme is outlined below with 100 places available for each session. Please also note that there may be changes to this timetable.
If you have any questions, please email Alfonso Pezzella.
