U.K. radiographer Alexandra Partner has joined the management team of the educational wing of the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS).
Partner is assistant discipline lead for diagnostic imaging, operating department practice, and osteopathy at the University of Derby. She said the overall aim of the educational wing is to promote and develop all levels of radiography education and research across Europe, and her appointment is an opportunity for a representative from the U.K. to add input into the strategic direction of the board, a news release from the Society of Radiographers noted.
“I really want to increase affiliate membership among our higher education institutions and increase engagement of both academics and students. I am hoping to see more involvement from both at our next student seminar and our webinar series,” she said. “There is a lot of great research and innovation in pedagogic practice and practice placement that we can share and learn across Europe – so spreading the word will be high on my agenda.
“I would also like to work towards fostering more international collaboration of research and student-facing activity, such as learning, teaching, assessment and placement,” Partner commented.
