Award Citation
Dr Shirley Ngai has devised various means of bridging the gap between clinical placement for physiotherapy and classroom training, such as blended learning, a flipped-classroom approach and the use of computerised medical simulation. She has led three educational projects designed to progressively enhance the use of computerised simulation for physiotherapy teaching and learning, and these projects have positive impacts on her students' learning. Dr Ngai also engages actively in projects with colleagues from other disciplines, and shared her experiences with other medical professionals. She will utilise the award grant to develop a mobile-learning app which provides students with timely access to relevant learning resources enabling them to learn during clinical practice.
