Optimising Approaches to learning and Studying

The quality of learning achieved in university depends on many factors, with approaches to learning and studying being only one important aspect. To optimize learning among our university students, it is necessary to understand the learning processes that make high-quality learning outcomes possible. How students learn and study has been described extensively encompassing many overlapping aspects, using different terms: eg. learning approaches, learning styles, learning orientations, learning strategies and study skills. Approaches to learning and studying can be described in simple terms as ‘how students tackle their everyday academic tasks’. There are three main approaches to learning and studying eg. deep approach, surface apathetic approach and strategic approach. Identifying learning approaches and taking necessary actions to promote the more desirable learning approaches is necessary to achieve optimum learning. This presentation describes learning approaches and how to optimize them.

Use of Social Media while studying/practicing Medicine

This guidance was released today in the UK and if you haven't read it, it comes into effect in April and essentially is saying: we are allowed to maintain private online social profiles but must be aware if patients can access these and how we handle it if they contact us; any opinions voiced we have to make it clear it is our own and conduct yourself online as you would face to face with regards to confidentiality and boundaries. This is quite interesting for me, as in our medical school there have been select cases of social media being used in disciplinary processes and I know myself that some of the photos I had on Facebook (I have deleted it) were not exactly portraying myself as the 100% professional doctor the GMC would love me to be. But then reading the guidance, it makes no mention of content from when you were younger. When I'm an F1 will anybody really care about the drunk photos of me from freshers week 6 years ago and will these be taken out of context? I get the impression most people won't, but some might. I really think they should have put a summarising take-home message in there somewhere: don't take the p**s, think before you post, don't give out medical advice as anything but your opinion and you'll be fine.
