Between 15-17 March, the international conference, Research in Medical Education (RIME) took place in Düsseldorf, Germany. The BM(EU) team from Southampton and Kassel contributed a workshop and two research papers to the proceedings.

The focus of the fifth RIME conference was ‘Workplace based Learning, Teaching and Assessment throughout the lifelong Professional Career’. MEDU staff, in collaboration with Kassel School of Medicine, contributed in the following ways: 

The BM(EU) team, led by Programme Lead, Clare Polack designed and ran a 4th workshop entitled: ‘Effective Feedback in Workplace learning: the why and how’ (with Julia Schendzielorz, KSM Education Manager and Sandy Miles, BM(EU) Deputy Programme Lead). The workshop drew on their experience of providing a programme of faculty development in Germany. 

Julia Schendzielorz and Clare Polack presented a paper focused on the design, development and evaluation of the main faculty development event they facilitate in Kassel to support the BM(EU) delivery. It was entitled: ‘"Fresh Approaches to Clinical Teaching" (FACT) – developing and delivering an innovative staff development course at Kassel School of Medicine’ (co-authors: Sandy Miles and Anja Timm).

Anja Timm, the BM(EU) Deputy Programme Lead: Research & Development, presented a paper on the follow-on research from the Beyond Competence project. It was entitled: ‘"You're like on an island if you're the only medical student on the whole ward" – legitimate peripheral participation, medical students' attendance and sense-making of learning opportunities on their initial clinical placements’ (co-author: Mohammad Qasim Ashraf).

Finally, Anja Timm was invited to chair the conference session on ‘Theories behind, Empirical evidence and Observations’ by the RIME conference chair, Thomas Rotthoff, of Heinrich-Heine University in Düsseldorf.
