Welcome to the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences

Deputy Dean (Education) – Professor Wayne Hodgson
Associate Dean (L&T) - Professor Marilyn Baird
Course Convenors (Academics)
Course Administrators (Professional Staff)
Unit Convenors (Academics)
Faculty Education Office - 27 Rainforest Walk
Student Academic Support Unit (SASU) mainly for International and NESB students
Engaging with students:
face to face / on-line pre-recorded / on-line live

1 hour allocated which consists of 50 min interaction and 10 min changeover (e.g. 10.05-10.55)
will range from ‘stand and deliver’ to interactive

NB. not the only, or most important source, of information
generally organises and provides structure
supports readings and practical experience

be on time
pay attention
turn off your phone
not normally compulsory (many will be recorded)

Commonly referred to as ‘pracs’

Format varies according to unit / course
attendance - on time is expected
notify absences ahead of time (may be attendance requirements / medical certificate)
be prepared / prac manual or on-line intro - complete practical report while the experience is fresh

Demonstrators are there to demonstrate and answer questions -
not to do your work.

Format varies according to the unit / course
Refer to your Unit Guide

You get out only what you put in
attendance - on time is expected (may be attendance requirements / medical certificate)
notify your tutor of any absences ahead of time
tutors are there to facilitate (will not always be content experts), not to lecture
prepare yourself to participate actively
contribute to the group, be supportive

Better Teaching Better Learning

Many Faculty courses have introduced ‘blended learning’
Mixture of face-to-face teaching with on-line through Moodle or other learning platform
'Front loading’ information or ‘flipped classroom’


There is often a lot of reading
start early in the semester and keep up
primary source of information
the library (inc. online resources) is vital - staff friendly and helpful

How much you learn is up to you
independent (self directed) learning is essential
critical analysis is more than rote memory
make sure you are aware of course / unit and lecture objectives

Work Load
Assumed full-time academic workload is 48 h / week
which is a combination of scheduled learning activities & private study

Nature of the discipline determines how this is distributed

Be careful about quantity of external paid employment
several studies indicate more than 10 h interferes with learning
more than 15 h causes serious interference

International students must conform to visa working restrictions.

What is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism means to take and use another person’s ideas and/or manner of expressing them and to pass these off as one’s own by failing to give appropriate acknowledgement.

This includes material from any source, staff, students or the Internet – published and unpublished works.

Intentional versus unintentional plagiarism?

Monash now using ‘Turnitin’ software widely. – academic integrity policy
Learning Communities
Knowledge is not money, you don’t lose anything by sharing it

Formal learning groups organised for some units

Informal learning groups can always be organised
increase your access to sources
help understanding of the material (someone will know what you don’t and need what you do)

Makes university more fun/improves ‘survival’

Academic Assistance

Major source of help and advice about the unit
Other means of contact, e-mail or voice mail, are useful
Office hours should be noted
