About the program

That's not how it works in the real world': Learning from experience

Dr Sarah Yardley

BM, PGCertClin Ed, MA, PhD, MRCP, MAcadMEd


Dr Sarah Yardley is a clinical doctor specialising in Palliative Medicine and Medical Education research in London. Her presentation considers the question  "how can experience  be turned into learning?". Dr Yardley suggests this is not the right question. Rather, the questions educators should be asking are: what is being learned, and why? What else, and why does this matter? The session will be held via video link. Locations will be the Committee Room in The Chancellery at UoN and the SRM Meeting Room at UNE. Take the opportunity to explore how learners perceive the differences between theory and practice and to engage in debate on how medical education research can embrace 'real world complexities'.
