The 11th International Conference on Practice Learning and Field Education is being held in Belfast in April 2016, in association with Queens University Belfast.
This is a major international conference of interest to anyone involved with the professional development of students in any field of health or social care.
Supporting students in practice settings is an integral part of the preparation of health and social care professionals. Practice and Field Educators enable students to acquire, develop, apply and transfer educational knowledge, skills and attributes to support their learning within the workplace learning environment. In the current complex world of health and social care, students not only have to develop competencies for uni-professional practice, but they must also learn how to learn and work together collaboratively. Assessment of interprofessional learning and collaborative competence raises additional complex issues which have to be addressed.
This conference will focus on evaluating learning and assessment of performance.
