The University of Otago HEDC hosted a great conference over the last two days called Spotlight on Teaching and Learning. We really valued the opportunity to hear from colleagues around campus about the work they are doing to constantly improve and innovate in teaching. There were many staff from Health Sciences – check out the conference programme and the chat on twitter from the event.
Trish and Sarah from the Health Sciences Library reported back on some of their work with the StudySmart programme that has been rolled out across three second year cohorts this year. These are initial findings only, but the start of what we hope will be a programme that helps prepare students for life long learning.
