As educators, we see learner results in the forms of exams, papers, projects, etc. What we sometimes do not see are the actions that lead these results. And even more rarely do we get insight into the learner's actual knowledge, assumptions, and feelings that drive their actions. By understanding these learner "frames," we can more effectively drive changes in actions and results.

At the end of this session, the participant will:

  • Define "frames."
  • Examine the relationship between frames, actions, and results.
  • Identify skills to discover frames through curiosity and inquiry.

This session will discuss reflective feedback as an integral part of healthcare education. Reflective feedback requires an understanding of the roles of the facilitator and participant. Reflective feedback can be verbal, written or a combination. In this session, exemplary examples will be provided and participants will be able to role play utilizing reflective feedback statements.

At the end of this session, the participant will:

  • Define reflective feedback.
  • Identify best practices in the utilization of reflective feedback strategies.
  • Implement reflective feedback statements in an active learning demonstration.

Chad Epps, MD Executive Director of Healthcare Simulation
