Meeting Theme: Adaptive Expertise - Preparing Learners for the Future
As teachers we strive to train our learners for what they will encounter in their future careers. While we can prepare them for common situations in current practice, we can't prepare them for all possible problems they will face in an ever-changing healthcare environment. How best can we teach them so that they have the expertise to effectively deal with novel and unexpected cases? We need to draw upon existing educational theory and an expanding educational evidence base to inform our teaching and curricular approaches, so that we can help our learners develop the knowledge and skills needed to address the challenges they will experience in the future.
Workshops are 90-minutes in length.
