Providing Feedback

Providing regular, effective feedback to your student is one of your most important roles as a Clinical Educator. Numerous opportunities for giving feedback should occur during a clinical placement including:

  • Informal feedback: part of the normal day-to-day interaction. 
  • ‘Formative’ feedback i.e. feedback that is specifically designed to reflect on the student’s current performance, relative to learning objectives, with guidance on strategies for improvement, THAT IS NOT ASSESSED.
  • Formal feedback associated with assessment
