Workplace-Based Assessment - Nudges and Feedback

Course overview

This workshop guides participants through the practice of workplace based assessment within the clinical setting

This is an interactive workshop where participants will lead activities and practice giving feedback, how to spot 'at-risk' students and employ nudges to improve workplace learning and assessment.

At the end of the workshop, participants will be better able to:
