Last Call for Abstracts
The 12th international conference on practice teaching and field education in health and social work focuses on innovation in learning in practice.
This major international conference is of interest to anyone involved with the professional development of students in any field of health or social care.
The workplace offers an ideal learning environment to ensure learning is grounded in reality and is firmly practice based. The practice / clinical teachers who facilitate such learning face many challenges.The world of health and social care is complex and constantly changing; students not only have to develop competencies for uni-professional practice, but must learn and work together collaboratively; resources and time are limited and practitioners are often stretched and feel unsupported. Practice Educators have to be able to seek out and plan learning opportunities, but must also be able to identify and use opportunistic learning occasions. They have to be flexible and innovative in their approaches.
The following are themes relevant to the conference as guidance but we welcome novel proposals relevant to the overall theme of the conference
Themes for papers, workshops or paper presentations will include:
- Technology-based innovation – the use of innovative technology
in practice learning
- Practice education tools and models
- New perspectives in adult learning
- Research on practice learning and field education
- Interprofessional practice learning
- International approaches to practice education
Abstract Submission closes at midnight GMT December 31st 2017
