Workshop: Supporting the Learners through Supervision, Coaching and Mentoring

Date/Time
31 Jul, Tuesday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 1, #01-01B
Description

The present medical and health professional training landscape is complex and could be stressful to both the learner and the teacher. As a result, the importance of teachers’ proficiency in strategies such as mentoring, supervision and coaching has intensified than ever before. Closely competing for its due place in the teacher’s toolkit, these three educational strategies could sometimes be elusively overlapping. However, a clear understanding about the different roles and functions of each strategy, and where these would be most useful is value‐add to educators and administrators involved in health professional training programs. This workshop aims to provide the participants the foundational knowledge and skills in mentoring, supervision and coaching to enhance their own teaching‐learning environments.
