Meet FoHPE's newest Associate Editor Dr Sarah Hyde.
"I am an academic in HPE having worked in curriculum design, implementation and evaluation at the tertiary level for 22 years. I have worked across medicine, dentistry, and physiotherapy in particular, specialising in PBL, online learning, rural placements, and curriculum evaluation in particular. More recently I have worked as the Year 1 convenor in the new Joint Program in Medicine at Charles Sturt University, and was also the stream lead for PBL and Portfolio curricula. I live in Orange, a vibrant rural community in the Central West NSW, with my husband and three boys (aged 6, 12, and 14) + a border collie, chooks, and a bearded dragon!
My first ANZAHPE conference was at the University of Sydney back in 2001 and I have been a regular attendee ever since. I felt welcomed and supported to research in HPE from this very first conference and the enthusiasm for HPE was contagious amongst the network of colleagues and friends that has been sustained over this time. I joined the Committee of Management as Honorary Secretary in 2008 and then became Public Officer in 2011. I have learnt a lot from the many brilliant people engaged with ANZAHPE and its management along the way.
The opportunity to become an Associate Editor is a great privilege and I have found it rewarding so far and am enjoying the chance to learn more about writing and publications from a different perspective. I have been a regular peer reviewer for a number of journals in HPE and felt the time was right to take this next step, contribute more to this wonderful HPE community, and hone my skills in a different way. I have taken a step back from academia in 2023 and am on sabbatical in the UK, hoping to spend more time on writing and review (amidst traveling!) I’m looking forward to seeing more publications come to fruition through the journal and catching up with our membership in person in 2024!"
