WATCH: Health Sciences and hybrid learning — like a horse and carriage
2 November 2017
The Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Pretoria (UP) has a long and proud tradition of excellence in the education of health care professionals. At the heart of this is the Faculty's commitment to quality in teaching and learning. Health Sciences curricula and teaching methods are constantly updated to ensure that they keep pace with the demands of a rapidly changing world. High standards and innovative approaches to learning ensure that graduates can deal with complexity and solve problems in their working world.
Any platform that provides an opportunity for enhancing the learning experience, whether it is a teaching venue, laboratory, skills training unit, IT facility, residential and teaching hospital or clinic, is used optimally. Students learn through practice in hospitals, clinics and community projects, they learn in the classroom, and they learn on digital platforms of various kinds. This is hybrid learning at its best.
