Personal profile

Research Statement

Dr Amy Wong is a post-doc researcher in health professions education with international experience in teaching and learning in higher education. She has worked extensively with educators and practitioners in the health professions in assessment design and quality assurance. Amy also has experience in facilitating professional development across diverse Faculties to support staff in using educational data to make evidence-informed teaching and learning decisions. Amy’s methodological expertise covers both quantitative and qualitative analyses. Her PhD research explored the factors that influence examiner judgements of student performance and the effectiveness of providing examiners with feedback in a case study of competency-based assessment in medical education. Amy has presented her PhD findings in conferences in the UK, Europe, Canada and Australia. Amy’s research interests include competency-based assessment, examiner judgements, evaluation, quality assurance and learning analytics to enhance teaching and learning practices in higher and health professions education.

 

Research Focus

The purpose of Amy’s research is to promote engagement of health professional educators in evidence-informed teaching and learning practices. Her research focuses on exploring the enabling factors and barriers that either facilitate or hinder the change process. In addition, Amy is also developing innovative professional learning strategies that will empower health professional educators with knowledge and skills to engage in continuous self-reflection on their teaching practices. The research outcomes will assist in the development, transition and evaluation of new teaching and learning practices to enhance student learning experience in higher and health professions education.
