The resource kits act as a support tool for both the Practice Educator and the student and should be used to facilitate best practice in practice education and to provide direction in the case of queries/concerns. The resource kits support the implementation of the recently designed Practice Education Handbook which includes further details on all TCD Practice Education related information. Please refer to the Practice Education Handbook for further detail.
There are two resource kits – one for practice educators and one for students. Each resource kit is divided into three distinct sections:
Practice Educator Resources
Practice Education Handbook
The Practice Education handbook is an informative and comprehensive resource which details all relevant Practice Education related information for all stakeholders. The handbook is updated on a yearly basis and is an invaluable piece of pre-reading for placement and a useful resource throughout the placement process. All resources outlined in the resource kits below are also available in the handbook. As a student or PE preparing for an upcoming placement, we advised that this is your first reference point. Please find PE handbook available here.
Practice Educator training
A variety of basic and advanced training is provided by the Trinity College Practice Education Team on a yearly basis. Information relating to same is sent to all placement sites in advance and registration operates under first come first serve basis. If you have questions relating to upcoming training, please link directly with email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Learning Style Questionnaire
It is beneficial to acknowledge and appreciate your own learning style as well as that of the student in order to maximise the student’s learning. Prior to the student commencing his/her placement it is recommended to complete the Honey & Mumford Learning Styles Questionnaire. This questionnaire is available online for completion.
