  • Define research and scholarship in the context of health professions education.
  • Align individual plan for research and scholarship activities to the roles of teachers.


Higher education has been radically transformed as a consequence of globalisation and emergence of artificial intelligence technology.  One example is the removal of boundaries of space and time.   Policy makers and curriculum developers need to rethink the purpose of education and support mechanism for the learners to order to produce synergy and collaboration among countries, communities and individuals.  Some of the issues in curriculum development include QA in dispersed sites, serving the needs and demands of many different markets as well as meeting the learning preferences of future students.  Professor Richard Hays will share his thoughts and insights on curriculum development driven by value creation and efficiency enhancement, given the opportunities offered by globalisation and AI technology.
