CPD Opportunities in Practice Education
A variety of learning activities are recognised by CORU for Continuing Professional Development and practice educators can add these to their CPD Portfolio. Please click here for more information on these activities.
The Discipline of Physiotherapy supports physiotherapists in developing their role as practice educators through a number of professional development opportunities. These include web-based education unit and courses, local education sessions, informal mentoring by the practice education team, practice education conferences, interactive workshops, site visits from regional placement facilitators (RPF) and/or the practice education co-ordinator (PEC). The resource is available on the link below. You will need to register an account with the National Teaching Forum to access.
Various podcasts, webinars and presentations are available through the Assessment and Feedback Resources and Student Supervision sections of this webpage.
Over the past year, members of the practice education team have been involved in creating an online learning resource for clinical teachers, together with staff from across the School of Medicine. This is a free online resource available to all clinical educators, which may also be useful for interested academic/teaching staff as well.
There are 5 units, each taking approximately 40 minutes which cover the following;
- Core Principles of Teaching and Learning in the Clinical Learning Environment
- Feedback in the Clinical Learning Environment
- Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the Clinical Learning Environment
- Student Engagement and Promoting a Culture of Belonging in the Clinical Learning Environment
- Fundamentals of Work Based Assessment
