Participants will be assessed by actual laboratory practice, case studies/problem-solving, questions and answers, and demonstrations/simulation. Conclusions/Relevance to the conference theme: At the conclusion of our presentation, the participants should be able to meet the five objectives outlined below. This topic focuses on working as a team with students using the banking concept of Paulo Friere as a philosophical underpinning to optimize student to engagement and learning. Participants will have a greater understanding on how to engage their students, receive and use student feedback, and create a student focused teaching and learning environment.
