A new, two-part, online video tutorial on using the Competency-based Fieldwork Evaluation (CBFE-OT) produced by Bossers (original CBFE author) and Ravenek from Western University is now available free of charge:
The tutorial is meant to be helpful to you, if needed ... but not necessarily prescriptive! You may find that you have questions after viewing the videos, since there may be a bit of discrepancy between how you have used the CBFE 'historically' and what is contained in the tutorials.
If so, you are welcome to contact Cori Schmitz or another fieldwork team member for clarification!
We sure appreciate your ongoing support and involvement in the clinical education of our OT students!
The UofA Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine Collaborative for Scholarship in Clinical Education (CSCE) is offering the following clinical educator workshop:
Clinical Education in Rehabilitation: Practical Skills for Maximizing Student Development (includes discipline-specific breakout sessions to discuss curriculum, student evaluation process, etc)
This full-day workshop will be held in:
Calgary on Dec 14, 2017 from 0900-1600
Lethbridge on Dec 15, 2017 from 0900-1600
This full-day workshop is intended for clinical educators (CEs) who are interested in working with rehabilitation students in variety of practice settings. The morning will provide a thorough orientation to student supervision and evaluation including placement structure, clinical teaching strategies for successful placements, and discipline-specific information. In the afternoon, participants will explore and develop skills regarding the provision of constructive feedback and the facilitation of student reflection and professional growth. Work-readiness, professionalism, and the progression of clinical reasoning toward independent, entry-level practice will also be discussed. This workshop will provide strategies and support to new CEs as well as a more in-depth look at resources and strategies for more experienced CEs.

Registration is FREE for OTs who are or plan to be involved in student supervision but spots are limited so register soon to avoid disappointment!
We appreciate your ongoing support of OT student placements!
