Registering as a Facilitator in Phase 1 of the Medicine program - Step 1
Welcome to the on-line registration process for facilitators in the Medicine program.
Scenario groups are one of the key forms of teaching in the 3802 Medicine program. Each course is 8 weeks and integrates a range of biomedical, and social science content areas within contexts of authentic health experiences (scenarios).
To become a scenario group facilitator, you should have an interest in students and student learning, and have professional experience in science, medicine or a health-related field.
As a scenario group facilitator, you will facilitate a single group of 12-14 students for 4 hours per week plus an additional 1 hour facilitator meeting each week (total 5 hours/week). The scenario group meetings help students integrate the information they receive in lectures, prac classes, clinical sessions and tutorials and relate this information to clinical practice. At the end of the 8 week course you will mark between 10-14 individual assignments and/or group projects.
As a new facilitator you will need to attend a session usually run over half a day, two weeks before the start of the course. This is to give you an idea of the program itself and what is expected of you as a facilitator. You need to contact Elena Mankovskaia () about this session.
All facilitators attend another session run by each Course Convenor/s which introduces the course and provides you with the materials you will need. Once you register you will be contacted about this session.
You are welcome to choose to facilitate in anything from one to four courses for the year and we hope that most people will be able to do two or more. Staff who want to consolidate their teaching load could also opt to facilitate 2 groups at a time which reduces preparation.
If you haven’t already discussed facilitating a Phase 1 group with your Head of School please do so before registering.
If you have discussed your teaching program with your Head please continue to choose your Courses and Timetable.
