Teachers' Journal Club

MedCUL offers a Teachers' Journal Club, starting in August 2021. Participants in the Journal Club will read an article in advance and take part in a moderated discussion. The articles selected will hopefully be of interest to many of the teachers in the faculty programmes and may concern learning, teaching, educational development or leadership. The discussion will focus on the content of the articles and questions of concern for the participating teachers, and not on a critical appraisal of the article.

Everyone who has a role as a teacher or supervisor is welcome to participate. Meetings are in Zoom, and the same link is used for all meetings.

Article for Teachers' Journal Club 14 December

Ottrey, E. et al. (2021) ‘Exploring health care graduates’ conceptualisations of preparedness for practice: A longitudinal qualitative research study’, Medical education, 55(9), pp. 1078–1090. doi: 10.1111/medu.14475.

This article presents results from a study of what students from four different health professions in Australia think that it means to be “prepared for practice”. It is generally considered important to know which expectations different stakeholders have about students’ preparedness for practice. What do we know about our own students? What do they expect? Teachers? And the future colleagues?

The discussion will take place in English and/or Swedish depending on the participants.
