MOOC review - Teaching and assessing clinical skills

Coursera/ University of Michigan

Teaching and Assessing Clinical Skills is offered on Coursera from University of Michigan and the next course begins on October 5 2015. It runs for 6 weeks and you will need to spend 3-5 hours per week on it.

I completed this course earlier in 2015 and was very impressed with the material on orienting learners and on giving feedback. I think this course will be valuable to anyone involved in supervising students on placement, supervising new graduates, and teaching undergraduates.

The content in this course is based on medical education but is still highly relevant to all health professions. It is suitable for educators of all levels.
