Conversations for Learning: Feedback and Debriefing in Simulation-Based Education

Date: 15 Sep 2022, Thursday | Time: 1300 - 1600 | Track Type: Pre-Conference Workshop | Format: Face-to-face | Venue: Duke-NUS Medical School   

Speakers: Ms Freeman Kirsty Jane & Assoc Prof Gope Monica


A key component of the healthcare education experience is the feedback and debriefing conversation where reflection is encouraged and learning reinforced. As healthcare educators, we need to tailor the conversation for learning to the learner and the learning context. With new tools and techniques related to facilitating debriefing and feedback, this workshop will provide the opportunity to grow these skills in our healthcare educators.

This three-hour workshop will provide participants the theoretical underpinning of designing, planning, implementation and evaluation processes related to facilitating conversations for learning. The focus of the session will be the practical application of feedback and debriefing techniques across a variety of simulation-based education settings. With varied and extensive experience in simulation-based education, Dr Gope and Ms Freeman will provide opportunities for learners to develop their individual practice in a safe and collaborative learning environment.


Learning Outcome(s):

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the components required to facilitate an effective debrief
  • Compare the methods and tools to support debriefing practice
  • Identify areas of personal development related to their debriefing practice
  • Apply techniques to improve your debriefing practice
  • Develop strategies to evaluate and grow your debriefing practice into the future

To measure the stated outcomes a variety of tools will be adopted including: pre-post test in the form of live polling; self-reflection worksheets; simulation activities; and small group discussions.

Target Audience:

This workshop has been designed for educators across the health professions who wish to grow their debriefing practice. The session will be tailored to the skill level of each individual, from the novice to the expert, as participants and faculty learn with, from and about each other, with the ultimate aim of becoming better educators.
