Prestigious UK medical schools choose PebblePad to support student-centred learning
PebblePad has announced it has bolstered its roster of medical school customers, with prestigious institutions selecting its Learning Journey Platform to support student-centred, experiential learning initiatives, both on campus and in a clinical setting.
PebblePad’s intuitive, easy to use, platform will help medical educators support, guide and develop students from induction to graduation, and beyond – helping universities stay closely connected to students throughout their unique learning journeys. And crucially, PebblePad enables the capture of real time assessment data in challenging clinical environments – promoting the lifelong requirement for medical students and employees to collect and curate evidence.
Using PebblePad, medical school students have comprehensive evidence of their learning journey as they document progress towards competency of professional standards, combined with personal reflections and valid assessor insight of their performance. This means that students can be confident that the feedback is valid, peer-reviewed, and informed by quality assurance mechanisms.
Paul Duvall, Head of Client Success & Learning Consultancy UK&I at PebblePad commented:
“A common ambition amongst senior stakeholders, educators, and technologists working within medical education is the ability to better encourage and support active, authentic learning – within and beyond the classroom. With clinical skills, specialist placements, electives, research and collaborative projects all forming significant components of a student’s overall education, medical schools are turning to PebblePad, a Learning Platform versatile enough to support these varied learning and development activities and help deliver a first-class student experience.”
Crucially, PebblePad supports true lifelong learning, helping students and graduates build and evidence their experience and skills long after they have left full time education.”
Founded in 2004, PebblePad is an award-winning Learning Journey Platform, designed to help learners, wherever they are learning (at study, work or play), develop, shape, and share their unique skills and attributes in an ever more competitive world. It’s why PebblePad is fast becoming an integral part of Higher Education institutions’ digital ecosystems across the globe.
