Precepting Challenges

Wecome to our workshop on Precepting Challenges

Working with learners can be challenging: we all run into situations where we are not sure what to do.

Before this workshop, we have some cases where you can try out your skills with a learner in difficulty. We suggest you try the cases in this order. The first two are the most important to complete. The last one is quite a bit longer – some may prefer to leave Larry until after the workshop. But the workshop discussions will be richer, if more folks do the prep work.

If there is a keyword to unlock a case, use: challenged

  1. Reverse Rupert (~7 mins)
  2. Zebra Zach (~6 mins)
  3. Glacial Glen (~5 mins)
  4. Testy Tessa (~4 mins)
  5. Lackadaisical Larry (~25 mins)

Because this workshop involves, yes, work(!) and reflection on our teaching skills, we will seek advanced CME credits for those who participate. Make sure to provide your name and college number for accreditation tracking.

We leave these cases up so you can come back to them. We also provide additional resources in our workshop and on this site.

Learning objectives

For the workshop, here are the formal objectives. After this workshop, participants will:

— Recognize factors in their own context that make precepting a challenge
— Collaborate more closely with others in promptly addressing those challenges
— Perform more happily as effective evaluators and coaches
