Graduate Surgical Education - Providing Effective Verbal Feedback to Trainees – Knowledge, Skills, and ApplicationsSurgical Education Research Group - Qualitative Methods and Writing Qualitative Work for PublicationClerkship Directors Committee - Troubleshooting Your Clerkship

Feedback is essential to improving trainee performance in cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains. Yet instructors and learners consistently report different perceptions about whether they have given, or received, effective feedback. Additionally, instructors often voice perceived barriers to providing feedback, especially when it is regarded as negative and/or the learner’s reaction is unexpected. This course will provide participants with knowledge and skills to give effective verbal feedback, address learner reactions, and debrief feedback interactions. Participants will also obtain materials and methods to implement a version of this course customized for their own institutional needs. Educational objectives This course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to:
1. Explain educational concepts relevant to effective feedback and methods to provide such feedback to trainees.
2. Identify and utilize opportunities to provide effective feedback to trainees, including ensuring that trainees are cognizant of having received feedback.
3. Manage and respond appropriately to a variety of trainee responses, particularly when negative or unexpected.
4. Conduct effective debriefing of interactions between instructors and trainees.
5. Implement knowledge and skills acquired in this course at their own institutions to teach effective feedback strategies to others.

The course will provide an opportunity for ASE members to gain skills in conducting and writing about qualitative research, something that most members, particularly those without formal training in education, have probably not had. The course would combine both presentation of information and tips regarding qualitative research and publication as well as active learning and application of these strategies. Workshop topics will include types of qualitative design, study methods, data analysis, writing about qualitative work, time for consultation on individual projects, and other topics determined by the invited course facilitator.
