Dr Clive Gibson talks about Keele's Clinical Education programme
"The course is a challenging and extremely rewarding course. It has given me invaluable insight into the many aspects involved in medical education and training. The teaching staff make it enjoyable, pushing you to develop your opinions and ideas on the subject, thus allowing you to apply it practically to your day to day work. This has not only made me a better trainee/student, but has also significantly improved my skills and expertise as a teacher."
"The certificate and diploma courses introduced me to the concepts and psychology of learning styles, educational motivation, reflection, small group teaching, evaluation and appraisal. The courses were excellent, practical and enjoyable, and fitted easily into my full time medical occupation. My subsequent individual award for “Learning and Teaching Excellence” from the University I attribute substantially to the knowledge gained during the courses which I was able to put into practice with my students almost immediately"
