The e-Learning Unit at St George’s, University of London works to support the student experience. We develop resources, do research, and participate in international collaborations and projects.

Our purpose is to:

  • develop innovative learning solutions to support case-based learning, workplace learning and internationalisation in our undergraduate and postgraduate courses

  • create first-class research and development groups, focused chiefly on innovation and international collaboration in the field of scenario-based learning, and in particular virtual patients

  • develop online learning experiences to support continuing professional development in medicine and healthcare, particularly through the creation of MOOCs (massive open online courses).

Who we are

We are a group with backgrounds in bioscience, technology, computing and education who recognise the potential for technology to support enhanced blended learning experiences.

What we do

Supporting the student experience

We support innovative approaches to learning in medical and healthcare education, specialising in using virtual patients to enhance group teaching, lectures and MOOCs.

International collaborations and research

We are involved in and lead multiple funded projects and international networks, producing research into the use of scenario-based learning approaches for the development of decision-making skills and training against medical error.

Curriculum transformation

We have collaborated with several international medical universities to successfully transform their curricula through the introduction of technology-enhanced learning and development of online learning resources.
