Diamond Health Care Centre, 4th Floor Room 4115 & UBC Campus, Life Sciences Centre, Room 1312CMR

Overview: Why do clinical teachers have such difficulty acknowledging that a student is in difficulty? One underlying reason is a lack of information about remediation options.

In this webinar, participants will use the analogy of a clinical reasoning process to analyze and take an organized approach to dealing with the daily problems facing learners in difficulty. They will learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of students in difficulty, how to make a pedagogical diagnosis that takes into account the various dimensions of learning, and how to use a list of relevant pedagogical interventions generated by a BEME systematic review to help learners in difficulty advance in their learning ( ).
