Working with health professional students

 

Working with students can at times seem an overwhelming task, particularly if you are not practicing as the same type of health professional as the student you are working with. There are a variety of resources available to support you.

TELL Centre

TELL is the acronym for Teach, Educate, Learn, Lead. The TELL Centre's aim is to create a community of practice for learners and teachers. The Centre is an initiative of the School of Medicine and Pharmacology at the University of Western Australia. Traditionally the health professional teaching and supervision programs have been delivered through face-to-face workshops. Through TELL, ‘Teaching On The Run’ (TOTR) has now been successfully adapted to blended learning where there is an online component to support the face-to-face workshops and more recently ‘Learning On The Run’ (LOTR) to a fully online version.
