3.3 Training for feedback

3.3.1 Review with SPs the fundamental principles of feedback as they relate to the planned activity.

3.3.2 Inform SPs of the feedback objectives and level of the learners with whom they will be learning.

3.3.3 Inform SPs of the feedback logistics and setting (e.g., one-on-one feedback with learner, small group feedback, simulation debrief).

3.3.4 Train SPs to use their observations, responses, and knowledge to provide feedback on observable, modifiable behaviours in learners.

3.3.5 Ensure SP readiness through repeated practice and targeted feedback.
