Vision & Mission
Our vision is to be a leader in the field of health professions education globally with a view to facilitating the provision of equitable and responsive health care in South Africa and beyond
Teaching & Learning
Our mission is to provide a blueprint for strengthening educational offerings. We refer to activities to improve knowledge, skills and behaviours as teachers.
Our mission is to offer academic leadership towards establishing and sustaining and enabling environment within which meaningful learning and teaching can flourish and to influence the practice of learning and teaching drawing on existing scholarship while contributing to the body of knowledge through our own research.
Learning Technologies is situated within the Centre for Health Professions Education. The unit was established to facilitate the adoption of technology within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Science (FMHS) and to promote the ICT Strategies of both the FMHS and Stellenbosch University.
Simulation & Clinical skills
The SCSU offers a safe, structured environment for students to learn and practice hands-on in simulation, without fear of compromising a patient or themselves, while simultaneously receiving feedback on their performance.
about learning technologies
We are committed to facilitate, establish and improve the use of Learning Technologies to create an environment within which meaningful Teaching and Learning can flourish within the Faculty and beyond.
We offer leadership in the FMHS with regards to Learning Technologies. We are focused on helping colleagues use technology in ways that are both educationally effective and resource efficient. We will be focused on promoting awareness and expertise in the use of available educational technology resources. We are also committed to establish ourselves as experts in the field of Learning Technologies in Health Professions Education by doing research, building relationships and provide training.
we cannot challenge technology to serve the needs of education until we know what we want from it. We have to articulate what it means to teach well, what principles of designing good teaching are, and how these will enable learners to learn(Laurillard, 2012)
