SAAHE conference, 2008

Yesterday, I attended the first national Health Sciences Education conference hosted by the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Stellenbosch. It was quite inspirational, especially the talks given by two of the keynote speakers, which I found both informative and thought-provoking.

I was there to present the results of my Masters thesis, which I had someone video with the intention of posting it here. Unfortunately, the microphone on my camera didn’t capture the audio, so there’s no real point in putting the video up. However, I will be posting my presentation slides in case anyone is interested.

I’ll also be posting my notes from the conference, as well as a few comments on one or two of the other presentations. It’ll take a few days to work through though because I’m trying to catch up on some other things that are part of my “job”. I hate it when work takes precendence over the things I really want to do.
