Authentic learning in clinical placements is an important attribute of health professional education. Authentic assessment in this dynamic learning environment gauge students’ clinical, communication and professional skills. Given the nature of placements, mobile devices provide an ideal means for stakeholders to document student performance and activity in clinical workplaces, enabling formative, summative and programmatic assessment; facilitating timely feedback to promote discussion and student self-reflection, and assisting medical schools with quality assurance. Challenges include technology, security, sustainability and equity. Our experienced team of presenters will discuss and demonstrate successful approaches to date, as well as ways to navigate the challenges.
