Learning@Lunch – Teaching and Learning about Professionalism

Tuesday 27 February, 12.00 – 13.00, Simon Building, 5.08

Delivered by: Dr Jennifer Silverthorne

Undergraduates from a variety of disciplines are required to demonstrate their professionalism in addition meeting academic standards, in order to succeed at university. However, professional standards are often opaque and can be interpreted in numerous ways, instruction is implicit and many behaviours are context-specific. Educators are able to easily identify when learners exhibit unprofessional behaviours, but often struggle to offer instruction to individuals whose personal values and beliefs are not aligned well with professional norms.

After attending this Learning at Lunch seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify ways in which student and academic perspectives on professionalism differ
  • Use social theory to understand how learning about professionalism can be optimised
  • Critically evaluate how their own students learn about professionalism in order to identify opportunities to maximise learning

If you would like to attend this seminar, please register via Eventbrite.
