The focus of this course is on developing and expanding a repertoire of clinical learning strategies and evaluating different approaches for their effectiveness in achieving clinical practice learning goals in multiple knowledge domains (affective, interpersonal, technical; knowledge to application) in contexts of increasing complexity.  Students will work with clinical mentors in a range of clinical learning contexts.

 26
Course

This course will introduce theories of learning and their application to clinical education. You will gain knowledge of different domains of knowledge relevant to clinical practice and identify strategies to foster learning in different domains. You will be challenged to critically analyze the implications of the “theory-practice” gaps and develop a repertoire of strategies to apply theory in a range of simple to complex clinical educational contexts. Finally, you will analyze approaches to clinical education in formative education and professional development contexts and be challenged to employ different “knowledge to action strategies” to link theoretical foundations of clinical education with learning approaches.
