What will students need to know in your subject area that is different to what they are learning today? (Institute of Clinical Sciences led workshop: discussion responses)

Face-to-face learning of interpersonal skills such as communication, team working etc. must be a major feature of curricula. Students are highly tech aware, but in vocational courses such as health professions, students will still need to develop their interpersonal skills and this is best done face-to-face.

In the future there will be more demand for graduates to be numerically and digitally ‘savvy’ e.g. in handling large datasets – bioinformatics.

Health care students will also need to be more business ‘savvy’.

There will still be a need to give students the skills to help patients manage uncertainty and to equip them to be self-directed reflective learners.
