Thesis work

Thesis title: Learning and building in health: evidence-based design and the enhancement of medical student learning.

Supervisors: Peter GOODYEAR , Lucila CARVALHO

Thesis abstract:

My work will explore how best to verify how to approach planning, construction and renewal of learning spaces in clinical settings such as hospitals. It will take a learner-centred viewpoint, that of medical students, and develop methods to inform planning for improved learning through evidence-based design. As workplace learning plays a major role in medical student learning, spaces will include not just lecture, tutorial or class rooms and libraries but the spaces where workflow-integrated learning may occur. The increasing use of technology for work and technology-enhanced learning (TEL) will also be considered.
