Background: Health science educators must help learners develop habits of mind that will prepare them to meet the emerging needs of patients and communities. Coaching is a strategy for educators to partner with learners; promoting learners’ ability to identify, manage, and address learning needs.
Who Should Participate: Educators/educational leaders with interest in incorporating coaching in their work with learners, helping colleagues to use coaching and/or developing a coaching program at their home institution
Structure of Workshop: In this highly interactive session, participants will be able to immediately apply learning and practice skills through a series of small group exercises. The presenters will provide a brief overview of coaching foundations and techniques and prepare participants to engage with each other in a progressive role-play exercise by demonstrating how to begin a coaching conversation with a learner. Presenters will emphasize the use of appreciative inquiry in order to promote the development of lifelong, master adaptive learners. Participants will work in groups of three with each person having the opportunity to coach a learner using a case-based scenario. In sequence, the coach will explore a learner’s motivation and insight in recognizing their own needs; guide them in creating a learning goal; and in developing an action plan. In each segment of the conversation, one participant will serve as an observer and provide feedback. After debriefing in a large group, presenters will demonstrate an idealized approach to coach the learner described in the scenario. After soliciting potential challenges to integrate coaching/a coaching program at participants’ home institutions, presenters will outline lessons learned/key considerations for success from their own experience. Questions from the audience will prime dialogue about strategies to overcome challenges. To conclude the session, each participant will create a commitment for action that could address incorporating coaching in their work with learners, teaching coaching techniques to colleagues, and/or introducing coaching/a coaching programs within their course/curriculum/educational program.
Intended Outcomes: Participants will build and practice skills in using a coaching approach to work with learners. Participants will also be able to create a plan to apply what they learn at their home institution.
