Workshop 1: Dr. Steve Milanese, Australia, “Developing Clinical Reasoning in Manual Therapy from a Distance” (Hybrid format)
Clinical reasoning forms an integral part of the OMPTs skill set in support of our hands-on interventions. With an increasing demand from students and higher education institutions for on-line and blended learning delivery, we need to revisit clinical reasoning teaching using a different andragogical framework lens. This session will explore what clinical reasoning is, what makes distance-based education different, and ultimately will aim to develop strategies to facilitate the instruction of clinical reasoning at a distance. In the workshop attendees will deconstruct clinical reasoning and distance education and explore the integration of distance-based formats into manual therapy education to support the development of clinical reasoning. Examples of initiatives in this area across both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching will be presented.
Workshop 2: Euson Yeung, “Designing effective learner assessments” (Hybrid format)
Effective assessments are challenging to design. On the one hand, assessments need to be aligned with the intended learning outcomes of a course or program. They also need to be accessible to diverse learners and feasible to execute. In some cases, assessments are used to provide valuable information about the learning process. So, how do you account for all of these in the design of learner assessments? In this 1.5 hour interactive workshop, participants will become familiar with Fink’s taxonomy as a framework for assessment design. Participants will have the opportunity to apply these principles to a learner assessment from their own program or course.
The Teachers Meeting is accessible for every manual therapist, not only colleagues involved in manual therapy formation.
