The HYMS 9th Education Conference is taking place this Wednesday 17 September at the University of Hull.

Its theme is "Developing an engaging teaching and learning environment: from classroom and ward to Twitter and Facebook".

In her talk entitled: “How students learn – making the most of social media,” she will share her experiences of using social media as an effective tool in the teaching and learning process for both students and clinicians. Colleagues will be invited to attend a series of workshops throughout the day, exploring ways to ensure excellence in medical education in a range of teaching and learning environments.

The conference will be introduced by Dean of HYMS Prof Trevor Sheldon. It will then be followed by talks by Dr Andrew Brown, Academic Lead for the Learning Environment, and Mr Jim Innes, Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, Hull and East Yorkshire Eye Hospital.
