Activity description

142617 - On Line (Video Club) Small Group Supervisor Meeting

Murray City Country Coast GP Training Ltd

MCCC is the recipient of an Education Research Grant to implement and evaluate a novel form of professional development for GP-supervisors; the video-club. The video-club is a regular meeting, which takes place over time, where groups of GP-supervisors watch and discuss video-recordings of their teaching. MCCC is seeking accreditation of on-line and face-to-face video-clubs as an accredited (small group learning) activity.

Relevance to General Practice

MCCC aims to ensure that supervisors are equipped for their role as teacher and that the PD activities that they participate in are informed by the research-based consensus on ‘what works’.
Much of the extant PD for GP-supervisors is typically organized as face-to-face workshops by ‘host’ RTOs,. Although supervisors report that they like the collegial nature of these events, long-standing GP-supervisors can find the content repetitious, and there can be some disconnect to the ‘real world’ of teaching in the workplace. Transfer-ability from such ‘one-shot’ workshops is a perennial issue and they typically have minimal impact on attendees. There is a need to provide alternatives to face-to-face workshops and trial PD activities that have a better chance of developing supervisors as educators and impacting on registrars’ learning.
