Noldus Reminds Us Why Video Feedback Helps Educators Learn Too
Today Noldus reminds us that by using video and audio recordings in education, students and educators can receive and benefit from direct feedback. Does your simulation program have video camera’s in the debriefing room, to debrief the debriefer? Peer reviewing our simulation experiences will enable them to improve just as we hope to improve our learner’s clinical behaviors.
From the Noldus Website:
Students are raised with TV and internet and are accustomed to interacting with images and videos. They are used to receiving information by watching short movie clips. On a daily basis, students find themselves browsing YouTube for information (and for fun, of course). In training and simulation situations including, for example, a simulated nurse-patient interaction, students can learn a lot. The recent research Patient Education and Counseling article “The power of clinicians’ affective communication” tells us that it is important to first deal with emotions in a medical encounter before trying to convey an important message, such as a treatment plan.
Bill Gates tells us in his TedX Talk that teachers need real feedback. Findings show that educators can use video to reflect on their own behavior. In fact, research shows that by seeing themselves on video, professionals are able to improve their receptive, informative, and relational skills.
Bill Gates: “We need a system that helps all our teachers be as good as the best”. A high school teacher: “I think that video exposes so much of what’s intrinsic to us as teachers in ways that help us learn and help us understand, and then help our broader communities understand what this complex work is really all about”.
