An experiential learning framework was utilised in a series of work-based learning programme over the course of three years for Optometry students from Singapore Polytechnic. Our main motivation for the educational design was to help students to develop intrinsic motivation, improve their clinical skills performance and build the ability to integrate complex themes from multiple perspectives in real-time.

This panel presentation is by a group of Singapore Polytechnic Diploma in Optometry lecturers who implemented a series of Work Based Learning Programme for the training of Optometry students from Singapore Polytechnic. In this session, you will hear from four speakers who will be sharing on their journey in designing to implementing the intervention within their own professional context.
