Workshop: Competency Based Medical / Health Professional Education: Providing Effective Feedback to Enhance Learning

Date/Time
02 Jul, Tuesday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Tahir Foundation Building (MD1), Level 3, Multi-Purpose Hall (MPH) 1
Description

The ability to provide and receive feedback is important in the current learning context to improve the educational setting as well as to monitor the progress of trainees and trainers. If done properly, feedback will have a transformative effect on the person as well as the practice environment. It is therefore imperative that one is trained in giving both positive and negative feedback skillfully.

The workshop will focus on feedback techniques and discuss on how to develop good practices as well as identify bad practices. Training will be in small groups and will focus on current learning environments of undergraduate and postgraduate settings.

After this workshop participants will be able to apply the educational principles learnt into practice while providing feedback, evaluate the effectiveness of providing feedback in various educational teaching learning settings and facilitate effective feedback practices in their work environments.

Workshop: Gopen Scientific Writing

Date/Time
16 Jul - 17 Jul, Tuesday - Wednesday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Duke-NUS Medical School, Level 2, Amphitheatre
Description

This scientific writing workshop conducted by Dr. George D. Gopen is based on the concept that in order to improve writing, it is first necessary to understand the process of reading. The ideas presented in this course have changed participants' writing habits permanently, often resulting in improved grant-writing and publication success. 

Dr Gopen will show how to control the way in which readers travel from sentence to sentence, thereby following the flow of the writer’s intended thought. This will lead in turn to a consideration of what expectations readers have of the shape and movement of thought in a paragraph.
