Developing a Student Centred Approach to Practice Placement Briefings and Debriefings
Callister, Georgina M.
Practitioner Research in Higher Education, v1 n1 p10-14 2007
This research developed from the recognition that work-based placement briefing and debriefing sessions need to encourage reflection and student self-directed learning. An action research methodology was used to obtain students views of the value of briefing and debriefing sessions. Changes to session format were introduced and then in response to student comments they were re-evaluated. Results demonstrated that students were unhappy with the original format. They preferred and became more fully engaged with the self-directed, student-centred sessions when reflection was an integral element.
