Centre for Education
Research & Impact
The Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine has always had a clear mission – to deliver world-class education and research. In order to support continued excellence and innovation in these areas, the Centre for Education was formed to provide educational leadership across the Faculty.
The Centre for Education is led by Co-Directors Prof Helen Collins & Prof Nicki Cohen and is managed by Dr Tania Alcantarilla. The focus is on enhancing the Faculty’s undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research programmes by developing:
As many of the Faculty's undergraduate education programmes draw on expertise across the Faculty's academic structure, the two Schools of Education - i.e., the School of Bioscience Education with its Teaching Departments and the GKT School of Medical Education - are responsible for the coordination and delivery of these programme and are the academic "home" for our students.
The Centre for Education research groups represent a mult-faceted approach to developing education and curriculum across healthcare, focusing on equality and diversity, widening participation internationally, and exploring creativity and playfulness in the context of Higher Education.
The KUMEC Team provides, supports and promotes medical education in community contexts. This is applied through fostering learning opportunities with and for patients, students and community teachers, with the aim of producing caring and well-trained doctors.
