Innovative Education

Grow into a professional in a climate of innovation

At Health Sciences we are proud to use some of the most innovative learning techniques available anywhere in the world.

For example, our Curriculum Innovation Programme allows our students to personalise their learning by selecting interdisciplinary modules. These comprise: Healthcare Ethics, Theory and Practice and Global Health.

Then there is our Student Engagement in Curriculum Developments programme, where we work alongside students to help them develop and evaluate our curriculum, as well as working with them as partners in research too.

There is also our Forum Theatre project, which helps students to explore clinical scenarios, rehearse solutions, and change outcomes for the better.

Finally, there is the Wessex HIEC knowledge programme, which focuses on achieving best practice and best value in healthcare through innovation. This project benefits particularly from a process of consultation with over 40 different organisations.

All of these things have been created because we firmly believe in using innovation to overcome challenges, whether clinical or budgetary. After all, the course of human history shows us that whenever there has been a problem, or inefficiency, humankind has engineered a solution.

The Forum Theatre

Forum theatre provides a very powerful tool for learning and changing behaviours, which is practiced in a fun and engaging way that facilitates the sharing of personal reflections and experiences. The aim of forum theatre is to explore real practice scenarios in a way that empowers students to rehearse solutions and change the outcome of a scenario for the better. It is a form of interactive drama.
