Clinical supervisors typically learn to teach on the job or by participating in formal faculty development. Opportunities to refine their skills through workplace feedback are limited. Adopting a workplace-based structured peer support process contextualised to the needs of the supervisor offers an innovative solution to improving teaching. It fills the gap between theory and practice, can promote enhancements in the quality of education, and enrich the supervisory culture.

Aim of the webinar

The webinar will introduce participants to an evidence-based collaborative interprofessional peer support process involving self-reflection and peer observation. After attending this webinar participants will recognise the peer support clinical supervision process as an effective faculty development strategy that can strengthen the quality of their workplace supervision. They will understand the evidence informing the components of the process. The webinar includes time to engage with the free online resources and peer support tool in a simulated process.

The webinar is aimed at any health professional with supervisory responsibilities, regardless of level of experience or workplace context. It will also be valuable for managers wishing to promote the development of effective teaching and learning within their team including vocational level training pathways, and university-based faculty who support clinical educators.
