Event description


This is a clinical skills based course where students learn skills that are required for midwifery practice in a workshop format. There is a lecture series to support the foundational clinical learning required to enter midwifery practice. These are held at the Mater Whitty Building but there are also two extra lectures delivered at the St Lucia campus in Weeks 5 and 6. The scenario is based around a teenage pregnancy so the lectures Susannah delivers are about the mechanisms of labour and caring for women during labour.

Susannah has experience in making quality contributions to teaching, learning and student engagement within the midwifery programs at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Susannah has served in leadership roles as Program Coordinator and Program Director, and in this her key achievements, are; curriculum development and introduction of the inaugural Bachelor of Midwifery in Queensland; development of the transition to midwifery practice courses which allow students to transfer between the undergraduate degree programs; and contribution to the development of courses in the Masters of Midwifery program which will assist in preparing midwives for eligibility status.

Quality of Susannah’s teaching and scholarly activity within the school was recognised when she received a “high commendation” for teaching excellence as an individual, and a “citation” for outstanding contribution to student learning for her role in the team of midwives who developed the content for the Masters of Midwifery Degree. Susannah has over 10 years teaching in the PBL format in all year levels of the bachelor of Midwifery Program. Susannah is also known for her engaging midwifery lectures, where she uses storytelling from her own clinical practice experiences to illustrate key points for students.
