Public lecture on health and social care education
Professor Sally Glen will present a free Public Lecture at the University of Wolverhampton’s City Campus on Wednesday, 9 April 2008, from 6pm to 7pm. The lecture is entitled: The Apprentice Model of Health and Social Care Education: Back to the Future?
The lecture has grown from a series of papers written by Professor Glen over the last decade about the challenges associated with delivering practice education to pre-registration nurses and the implications for the role of the nurse lecturer. The lecture will engage in future thinking about nursing education and what the implications may be, not only for nursing education, but also for health and social care education generally.
Professor Glen, Pro Vice-Chancellor Academic, said: “Since the dawn of the new millennium there has been considerable reflective reinvention within academic health and social care. The general consensus is that more of the same is not the answer. Reinvention is needed.”
The lecture will be held in the Millennium City Building, in Lecture Theatre MC001. For further details visit www.wlv.ac.uk/publiclecture or call The Graduate School on 01902 323344.
