AMES/OMSE FID Series No. 11 - Narrative Feedback

Monday, May 5, 2014 - 8:30am
COM-3230 (third floor, College of Medicine, teleconference room)


Writing Effective Narrative Feedback to Improve Student Performance

Time: 8:30 - 10:00 am

Presenters: Paul St. John, PhD, and Sean Elliott, MD

Intended audience: Basic and clinical science faculty


Giving and receiving feedback is like eating your spinach – everyone thinks it's a great idea, but not everyone does it.

Why not?

Probably a combination of lack of will and lack of skill. Participants in this workshop will discuss the benefits (and costs) of giving feedback in an educational setting, some commonly accepted guidelines for how to give feedback, and some new approaches to this important educational activity.
