A Conversation with Professor Tina Brock
We begin our second day of the conference with a conversation with Professor Tina Brock, new Director of the MDHS Collaborative Practice Centre.
A pharmacist by background, Tina is a pioneer of interprofessional education and collaborative practice. Tina calls herself a “global honeybee” who buzzes around the world pollinating projects that improve health care. In addition to studying teamwork, she is a founding member of RxforClimate.org and co-hosts a monthly podcast called Pharmacy Fika. Tina can’t wait for Aust Open tennis to begin and to return to her aerial yoga practice… in Mandarin.
Under Tina’s leadership, the centre will work collaboratively with you and across the Faculty to drive stronger collaborations with patients, families, communities and other health professionals, in and beyond the health ecosystem.
Commencing with a conversation with Professor Liz Molloy, this informal chat will allow you opportunity to start to get to know Tina, her background and her interests in connecting with you for advancing collaborative practice.
Relationships for Collaborative Practice
The ‘collaborative practice’ in the centre’s name speaks to both the ends of the centre, but also to ways of working. In this session, to be chaired by Professor Tina Brock, we invite a sharing of the ways in which relationships are being developed and ways they are informing exciting developments in health education, leadership, research and care.
Speakers from the Collaborative Practice Committee will offer snapshots and perspectives on how they nurture and privilege the relational aspects of their work. Join them to discuss opportunities for us all to seed, nurture and strengthen relationships for developments in collaborative practice.

Generative AI: Implications for teaching, learning and assessment
We conclude our 2023 conference with a special plenary session on Generative AI: Implications for teaching, learning and assessment, led by Professor Margaret Bearman and Professor Phillip Dawson, both of the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE), Deakin University – speaker details below.
In February 2023, Margaret launched a series of TEQSA and CRADLE webinars on Generative AI in higher education by asking ‘ChatGPT: What do we need to know now?’. The series has engaged many thousands in conversations that have foregrounded scholarship, deep practical expertise, and an intrinsically human warmth and intellectual candour. Across and beyond the series, Phill and Margaret have extended discussions on Generative AI in relation to teaching and learning, assessment reform, academic integrity, research and more.
As we approach the one-year anniversary of the launch of ChatGPT, Phill and Margaret look forward to joining you to extend conversations of some of what we have learned so far, and how we may continue to approach education in a time of Generative AI. Speaker details. Margaret's slides; Phill's slides.
