Dynamic Paired-Behaviors in Effective Clinical Instruction
Ford, Philip D.; Velasquez, Benito
Athletic Training Education Journal, v5 n1 p32-37 Jan-Mar 2010
Background: Pedagogical strategies related to clinical instruction are needed to improve students' education in the clinical setting. Description: In this article, we use the relevant literature to identify and define "effective" clinical instructor behaviors in athletic training. In addition, we propose a pairing of behaviors as a cueing strategy for athletic training clinical instructors. Objective: The purpose of the article is to provide a brief background on the following paired-behaviors: communication-action, demonstration-practice, and instruction-evaluation as key elements to effective clinical instruction in athletic training education. Educational Advantages: If clinical instructors recognize the importance of using these paired-behaviors in clinical education, it may dramatically impact student learning. (Contains 1 figure.)
