The Centre of Medical Education announces the following training event especially designed for Clinical Faculty as part of the Erasmus Mobility Exchange Programme.

The Deconstructed Lecture, The 21st Century Lecture & Flipping Classrooms

Friday,  29 March 2019 | 10:00-11:00 | Grey Amphitheatre | Millennium Building |University of Nicosia

It is a challenge to use traditional didactic teaching to cover the expanding fields of medical science in fixed blocks of time. Educationalists stress the importance of experiential learning and student-centred learning, which need to be active and participatory (for example, with peer-peer learning).

The ultimate active lecture is the flipped lecture or flipped classroom. This will often involve delivering the core lecture digitally (either as a screen cast MP4 or as a video of the formal lecture) and then using lecture hall time entirely for active learning via discussion, exercises and problem solving.


Dr Barbara Jennings joined Norwich Medical School as part of the inaugural team in 2002, and she is a Senior Lecturer in the Medical Education Department. Barbara is a scientist: her PhD was in cancer genetics, and she has a background in clinical molecular diagnostics. Her research interests include the identification and appraisal of genetic biomarkers, and she is the course director of a free online course in personalised medicine and pharmacogenetics.          ( www.futurelearn.com/courses/personalized-medicine?lr=55 )

Barbara is a member of the editorial board of the journal AMEE MedEdPublish, and she supports the open-access movement to make research findings available to all, free of charge.
