Challenges and Opportunities of Student Centred Learning (SCL) in times of Educational Disruption.

This video addresses challenges in creating student centered learning (SLC) from university lecturers’ perspectives in implementing online learning systems in Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Several main concerns include fairness and honesty in online assessment, effectiveness of SCL online teaching delivery and students’ (a)motivation in online learning environment. The study findings are also of considerable value in exploring opportunities in higher educational development.

Evaluations of Year 2 Biomedical Science student perceptions of the subject of Ethics at Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed) and Newcastle University (NCL) UK

The subject of Ethics is included in many science-based programs with the aim of empowering students to negotiate moral dilemmas that they may encounter in their future careers.   However, effectively incorporating and assessing Ethics components into “non-humanities” science subjects raises several challenges.  Findings will be discussed from this ongoing study to evaluate Biomedical Science undergraduate student perceptions on the Ethics subject area in terms of their engagement, assessment and application to future career.

Using a digital solution to build cohort identity and teamworking skills

Our 15 minute presentation will look at the challenges, successes and future plans of the new bespoke digital simulation (year 22/23) for Academic and Professional Skill Development (BUS1016), a core module on the Business Management Programme (N200). The simulation aims to address issues previously found with the module around team work, students proficiently using digital mediums, application of learning from other modules and increased awareness of the interconnectedness of N200.

The understanding, use and prevalence of neuromyths in Malaysian educators and students. 

Neuroeducation, the application of neuroscience research to inform educational policy and teaching techniques, is an emerging field of research. Unfortunately, neuromyths are prevalent in teaching practice, with many neuromyths still taught in teacher training. This project aimed to examine the prevalence of neuromyths in Malaysia. Data was gathered through questionnaires and focus groups. Results suggest that neuromyths are prevalent amongst staff and students in Malaysia despite the cohort having a generally good understanding of neuroscience.

How engaging are our online materials?

Using the Online Engagement Framework (Redmond et al., 2018) as a guide, we have asked FMS students what they find most engaging when learning online, and in what ways. Our presentation introduces this work, and explores student responses. From this, we will share preliminary findings and explore how we can best use the online learning tools at our disposal to create accessible and engaging online learning for all.

Exploring Motivating Factors Influencing Higher Education Students’ Involvement In Environmental Conservation Awareness Programmes: A NUMed Perspective.

This Beach Clean Up project revealed that participants, including volunteers were intrinsically motivated to contribute to the important cause of environmental conservation while the least motivating factors were identified including being advised by others and the location of such events being held. Interestingly, this study has also revealed motivating factors of being involved in the Beach Clean-Up that are beyond students fulfilling their course requirements; students reported pro-environmental behaviour in wanting to be part of a community in protecting the environment by being involved in teamwork.
