Learning Conversations: Feedback & Debriefing Practices in Clinical Simulation

Provider: Monash Institute for Health and Clinical Education

In this unit, students will examine how this type of communication – framed as learning conversations – can contribute to learning and teaching processes. We draw on literature from clinical supervision and simulation where concepts of feedback and debriefing are framed to support professional development. We consider perspectives of learner/trainee and teacher/trainer and strategies for creating safety enabling honest communication in learning conversations. Students will also have the opportunity to apply theory from the foundation unit in health professions education.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the role of feedback and debriefing in supporting learning
  2. Identify the range of settings in which learning conversations occur
  3. Recognise strategies to create safety for learning conversations
  4. Outline strategies to promote learner-initiated feedback
  5. Demonstrate learner-centred approaches to briefing
  6. Demonstrate specific debriefing approaches in diverse learning contexts
