Feedback is a multi-faceted concept that also accompanies evaluation and coaching. During the course of this workshop participants will complete an online module with self-assessment followed by a live workshop on feedback. Participants will learn about evaluation, the concept of feedback, the components which make it effective, as well as methods of delivering feedback in an effective manner. Concepts learned can be applied to all levels of learners as well as colleagues.

Lectures, usually accompanied by presentation slides or images, are a long-standing tradition in health-sciences education. Regardless of the comfort of this tradition, research has also shown for a long time that learning from a primarily listening and looking experience is minimal. In this hybrid (online plus live) workshop, educators will learn and apply the research evidence for designing PowerPoint slides to enhance rather than impede learning and simple ways to interactively engage an otherwise passive audience. Learners will spend approximately one hour in online self-study before the one and a half hour live workshop.


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

  1. State the 6 best practices of giving feedback
  2. Demonstrate effective practices of feedback using specificity, observations, timeliness, relevance
  3. Perform one method of giving effective feedback (e.g. Feedback with Good Judgement [FGJ] method)
  4. Identify one clinical/teaching venue where they can apply the practices/method mentioned above
