HTAG lead: Joy Rudland - Director of Educational Support and Staff Development at the University of Otago
We have 14 inaugural members representing a variety of Health Professional Educators including medicine, physiotherapy, speech pathology, radiography, nursing and mid-wifery. This HTAG will operate for 3 years with a clear focus on producing some tangible outputs. A particular stance will be taken in respect to supporting the ‘team’ in order to elicit a sustainable and self-regulatory effect on maintaining a positive learning environment.
At the inaugural meeting a decision was made to create / produce a resource (report) for interested ANZAHPE members on ‘Strategies to assist Health Professionals in generating a positive learning environment’. To contextualize this resource will are starting with fact finding to developing a bench mark in respect to what is happening now. All members of the group have circulated a key article that they have found particularly relevant to the topic.
Members of the HTAG also submitted a PeARLS abstract for consideration at the ANZAHPE conference in Melbourne . As there is a focus on working on a specific project the HTAG will become a closed group. The group with give regular up-dates to ANZAHPE.
We look forward to an exciting period of growth and development.
