ACCLAiM Professional Development Event

WHEN: Friday 1st September, 12pm (AEST)
Making sense of work-place based assessment

About the talk:

Brian Jolly’s 2012 paper with Jim Crossley (of the same title) was a work that condensed the research on and ideas about WBA at that time around 4 main concepts. First that the right questions be asked; second that they needed to be phrased appropriately, and third, they should be about important and measurable features, and finally they should be directed towards the right people, i.e., those that would know about those measurable features. The paper also raised questions for us about life in general and what to do with it for the best and has been cited between 250 and 300 times.

This interactive workshop will unpack those ideas along with a narrative that describes how the paper nearly did not get written, and when it did some of its ideas became uncomfortable for some clinicians and academics. It raised the issues of interprofessional contribution to assessment, and how the questions should be expressed in the best way (not always agreed upon) to investigate the particular skills or domain of interest.

Participants will be given opportunity to outline their challenges in assessment and whether adopting WBA is feasible, and any successes they cherish. The four concepts will be outlined, and their usefulness discussed.
