Hosted by the Department of Health Sciences Education, this year’s 9th Annual CHSE Conference was a space to engage with both innovative practice and research being done in the Faculty. The day-long programme began with a welcome from Acting Deputy Dean Professor Harsha Kathard and a keynote address titled “Decoloniality: Respecting the Sceptics and Challenging the Converted” by Associate Professor Elelwani Ramugundo.

A huge success, the day left many feeling inspired to try new ideas that will contribute to teaching and assessment in the Faculty.
