VICE-CHANCELLOR’S AWARD FOR TEACHING EXCELLENCE
The second half of 2020 saw the University needing to respond to the changed teaching environment arising from COVID-19. With the active engagement of participating lecturers, and partly in response to the challenge posed by COVID-19 to develop online learning, Dr Sebastian Rosenberg and Natasha Katruss from the Learning and Development Unit at CMHR re-engineered the Mental Health masters’ course to adopt a Problem Based Learning (PBL) approach.
"Discussions took unanticipated and sometimes exciting turns in which students, tutors and lecturers alike found new perspectives."
"We can confidently say that the tutorial format change to PBL drastically improved the experience for students, tutors and lecturers alike, with students learning valuable skills for life and the workplace, and teachers learning new ways of approaching their research from the students’ unique and creative insights."
