Detailed Information

Service providers, like many global organizations, are faced with the challenge of providing leadership in a resource constrained environment. As leaders, we need to set the vision and direction for our organizations, taking into account the impact this has on everyone concerned as well as making the organizations sustainable for future leaders.

This conference seeks to draw on the experiences of people who are leaders or seek to be leaders in the field of managing organizations in our challenging world. By working together and learning from one another, we need to create a culture of sharing best practices and encourage the need to ask questions, so that we can all improve our leadership ability and create a better picture for tomorrow.

This is a one day workshop aimed at all medical professionals, students or educators to introduce the value of observation, using a novel method which includes touch (haptics) and drawing (the making of marks on paper). This is known as Haptico-Visual Observation and Drawing (HVO&D)

Participants will be guided through a series of exercises that will enable them to understand and practise this observation method. The result is that each participant will be able to observe and draw capably using this approach.

The application of the HVO&D method results in a greatly increased level of observation of the form of a 3-dimensional object (including an anatomical part), as well as the cognitive memorisation of it. The course is presented by Leonard Shapiro, an experienced drawing teacher and workshop facilitator.

NOTE: You need absolutely NO drawing experience to participate in this workshop. All materials will be provided.

The course will be held at the University of Cape Town's Faculty of Health Sciences in Anzio Road, Observatory.

A certificate of attendance will be given to participants of the course.

The course is limited to 12 participants.
