This national teaching award is in recognition of her research, funded by the Faculty Unit for Educational Research Development and Practice (ERDP) around the use of multimedia research digistories as online educational resources for our Medical Education Master’s students. The original funding application was submitted by a team that Laura led and included Erika Gavillet (library) and Marc Bennett (NUIT). In an effort to make the ‘tacit’ and complex research process more explicit to students, and aware of time pressures to academics, Laura created digistories using archived materials.
As part of the award Laura will be presenting her research at the next ASME conference in July 2017, ‘If story telling is central to human meaning, why, in the research world, is there not more storytelling?’
