Feedback on Teaching
Section 3: Assessment Activity
3 credits per hour
Rationale and Target Audience:
This tool is for you if you are seeking feedback on your teaching from students, colleagues or other health professionals. The feedback may help you identify future learning and / or continuous improvement opportunities.
|1||Identify an area of your teaching practice you would like to improve||Choose an area of your teaching practice to assess.|
I would like to:
|2||Identify performance question(s)||Identify specific performance question(s) you have about this area of your practice (e.g. clear communication with students, use of audio-visual tools, sharing of current literature etc.).|
My specific question(s) is/are:
|3||Select one to three professional standards or criteria||Select one to three criteria/standards to compare your performance against (e.g., hospital/university guidelines on teaching, code of conduct, professional standards etc.)|
I will compare how I currently perform simulation debriefing to:
|4||Assess your performance||Obtain feedback from students and/or trusted peers on one or more specific aspects of your teaching performance. Feedback can be shared through surveys, evaluation forms, interviews etc|
The data sources that I will use to learn more about my current performance:
|5||Compare your current performance with the standards||Review and analyze the data you collected about your performance in step #4 and compare it to the guidelines selected in step #3. This will help you identify gaps and learning opportunities.|
My current performance vs. existing standards revealed that:
|6||Discuss your findings with trusted peer(s)||Share and discuss your findings with trusted colleagues, peers, or mentors to get input and feedback on the gaps/opportunities you identified and plan for next steps.|
I will collect and review feedback from:
|7||Identify the next steps for practice improvement||Use the data and feedback you collected on your performance to identify the actions you will take to close the gap between your current performance (guideline #4) and your desired performance (guideline #5) (e.g. additional learning, modifications to a practice process etc.).|
The self-assessment of my performance identified that:
|8||Document this process and the outcomes in your MAINPORT ePortfolio||Time spent on steps 1 through 7 can be claimed under Section 3: Feedback on Teaching.||I spent 2 hours reviewing the feedback received from participant evaluations and colleagues, and created a plan of action for improvement. I will claim this activity in my MAINPORT account under Section 3: Feedback on Teaching|
- What aspect(s) did the audit identify as done well?
