Previous Events

Our second Insights event A reflective model for medical education - was in May. Global experts on reflective practice Beverly Wenger-Trayner, Etienne Wenger-Trayner (, and Professor Tim Dornan together with the Professor Andrew Grantand Julie Browne (see biographies here), discussed current perspectives on reflective practice in medical and healthcare education, the benefits and challenges of introducing reflective practice, sociocultural learning theory, Communities of Practice (CoP) as a model for reflection on practice, trainees’ perspectives on reflection and innovative approaches to reflection and the way forward for reflective practice.

The first event in the series  Tackling the imperative: Moving interprofessional education from the periphery to the core took place on 23 November 2021 and was very well attended. The session featured a stellar panel of experts giving their views on how to move the IPE agenda forward and challenge thinking, and gave stakeholders an opportunity to inquire and debate.We would like to thank attendees for their active participation and for the excellent feedback!   For full information and to view slides and an edited recording of the event click here.
