7. Uddannelsesudvikling og universitetspædagogisk (følge)forskning, herunder pædagogiske priser
Ifølge mit pædagogiske læringssyn er det en basal udfordring ved den lægevidenskabelige uddannelse at opretholde balancen mellem
- At give de studerende en tværfaglig, problemorienteret undervisning uden at de studerende mister det brede faglige fundament.
- At give de studerende det brede faglige fundament uden at undervisningen bliver for katedral og uden at indholdet bliver kedelig udenadslære.
- At give de studerende et indblik i lægens dagligdag tidligt i studiet uden at spilde studenternes/lægernes tid i klinikken pga. manglende faglig viden til at forstå observationerne.
Jeg mener, at løsningen er en passende balance med et kort, tidligt klinikophold efterfulgt af en bred faglig undervisning, som bør være overvejende katedral undervisning jævnligt kombineret med interaktiv klasseundervisning, som i tiltalende grad i løbet af studiet kan krydres med tværfaglig, problemorienteret undervisning, som på 2. del af studiet kan blive mere klinisk orienteret.
Endvidere bør man udnytte og styrke den tætte forbindelse mellem SDU og OUH, således at medicinstudiet gradvist bliver mere klinisk uden helt at tabe forankringen i SDU. Derved vil de medicinstuderende tidligt erkende den kliniske relevans af deres teoretiske undervisning, hvilket øger motivationen og derigennem indlæring. Samtidigt vil de næsten færdiguddannede medicinstuderende bevare kontakten til SDU og basalforskningen, hvilket vil fremme tilknytningen til SDU, når de er færdige, og derved styrke samarbejdet mellem SDU og OUH yderligere og fremme senere tværgående/translationel forskning.
Generelt mener jeg, at studerende skal engageres i undervisningen for derved bedre at kunne huske stoffet. Dette gøres bedst, hvis de studerende pålægges forberedelse mhp. kort egen fremlæggelse, som derefter kan benyttes som udgangspunkt for den egentlige undervisning, der igen kan føre til en fornyet hjemmeopgave til næste gang.

8. Refleksion over egen pædagogisk praksis og fremtidig udvikling - herunder undervisningsevalueringer (kun til internt brug)
Jeg mener, at min rolle fremadrettet fortsat skal være fokuseret på postgraduat lægeuddannelse specielt i form af Ph.d. kurser, hvor min ekspertise vil blive bedst udnyttet. Det er dog stadig relevant, at jeg varetager hypertensions-undervisningen under K14, idet de studerende herved lære mig at kende, hvis de senere har kliniske eller forskningsmæssige spørgsmål relateret til hypertension.
