rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, August 5, 2014 1:02 AM

This is a must read for subject Coordinators, Principals, subject heads, and even teachers. Teacher Observation is an important way of giving feedback to teachers, that is over and above the feedback that students are likely to give. While observations might appear to be irksome, tedious and often invasive, the reality is that these observations make the teacher better, stronger, and more effective. There might be areas where a good teacher could work on and these could be turned into plus points. When I started to teach, everything was rather very traditional, the best, and most accepted mode was the Lecture Method, which the more enterprising teacher could enliven through discussions and brainstorming sessions. It was only after my Principal observed my classes that I realised that I could make each class more interesting by encouraging student led activities, divinding them into crews, allotting tasks to each one of them, and so on. All this feedback became possible through the quality of feedback that I was given by my senior. "Teachscape" is an important document that lays down guidelines and ground rules that an observer should adopt, and anyway, it makes good sense for teachers to go through them because they provide a valuable rubric for the teacher himself. In my school we use the Bob Marzano protocol which is in itself a comprehensive document. Filling it might take some time, but then as you get used to it, you can do a fair enough job!

Reflective writing and its impact on empathy in medical education: systematic review

Reflective writing and its impact on empathy in medical education: systematic review | Best Education Advice - Get Academic Degree | Scoop.it

Purpose:
Medical schools are increasingly aware of the ways in which physician empathy can have a profound impact on patients’ lives and have developed humanities initiatives to address this concern. Reflective writing in particular is more commonly promoted in medical curricula, but there is limited research on the impact of reflective writing on medical student empathy levels. It aims to find the emotional effects of reflective writing interventions on medical and healthcare students by systemic review. 


Methods:
Two investigators independently reviewed educational publications for critical analysis. This review focused systematically on quantitative papers that measure the impact of reflective writing on empathy. 


Results:
Of the 1032 studies found on MEDLINE and CINAHL, only 8 used quantitative measures pre- and post-written reflection to measure any impact on empathy outcomes. The outcomes measured included impact of reflective writing exercises on student wellness, aptitude and/or clinical skills.


Of these studies, a significant change in student empathy was observed in 100% of the studies, demonstrating a significant change in outcomes. Conclusions: Although the lack of homogeneity in outcome measurement in the literature limits possible conclusion from this review, the overwhelmingly positive reporting of outcomes suggests that reflective writing should be considered in any medical curriculum.
