The BSMS Learning Technologists recently joined with other learning technology advisors from Brighton University, Sussex University, and Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals (BSUH) for a ‘show-and-tell’ peer-feedback event. The purpose was that each Learning Technologist would bring along examples of their work to learn from each other and help improve our future work. The content was varied and created very helpful round-table discussion that will benefit our video projects.

Matthew Taylor and David Rafferty, BSUH Learning Technologists, kicked off the event with a selection of their newly-created department induction videos to help new doctors as they start placements. You can watch an example video here:

James Lewis, BSUH Clinical Media Centre, showed us his highly professional videos that were commissioned to mark the Brighton and Sussex Medical School’s 10th anniversary, highlighting the excellent patient care over the last 10 years.

Nick Feather, University of Brighton, demonstrated his use of a new 360° video camera that his department recently acquired. It enables a full teaching room to be captured on camera, and also has the ability (when paired with a VR headset and software) to record Virtual Reality viewing experience.

As the Anatomy Department had expressed an interest, I was keen to see it in action. Since the meeting, we have recorded an induction to the Anatomy Laboratory for prospective learners.You can see an example of the 360° video camera in action below.


Lastly, Pete Sparks and George Robinson, University of Sussex, gave us a look at their work with teaching staff in global studies.

During our discussions, we talked about technical issues, managing people as well as standards, and required outcomes. Unfortunately, Tim Vincent and CJ Taylor the learning technologists from BSMS were unable to show their work, as we had run out of time, due to the large body of work being shown. Feedback after the session was positive, and the outcome was that the technologists had benefited from this session and we are hoping to plan further sessions in the future.
