Improving computational skills of personalised medicine students through positive pedagogy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This Advance HE-funded study explores a positive pedagogy inspired Learning & Teaching (L&T) model, which combines student-centred, problem-based and active-learning approaches for teaching a cross-disciplinary subject (in this case Computer Programming) to students of a multi-disciplinary course (in this case Personalised Medicine). Results will include reflection on the aspects of this model that contribute to reducing student anxiety when faced with a challenging cross-disciplinary subject and prepare them better for the global workplace. This study is built on a pedagogy project which was recognised by Ulster University twice, consecutively in 2018 and 2019, through its Distinguished Education Excellence Award.
