FOM PGT Education day 22 June 2021 

Looking Back, Looking Forward:  What worked, what didn’t, what next?

Our annual PG Education staff conference celebrated the past year and looked forward to the next one. We invited speakers from across our departments to contribute.

All sessions consisted of short ‘ignite’ presentations from a range of FOM PG programmes, with time for discussion and wash-up.  The education vice-provost Emma McCoy shared the College vision for education with us, and we also met Martin Lupton, the vice-dean for Education in the Faculty of Medicine.

One hundred colleagues joined us to learn what worked, what didn’t work, what we haven't tried, and how to gear up for the next year in PGT.

Session recordings for all the themes can be found on this page.
