A Practical Guide for Clinical Educators

Associate Professor Clare Delany and Professor Elizabeth Molloy

The Department of Medical Education's Professor Elizabeth Molloy and Associate Professor Clare Delany launched their new book, Learning and Teaching in Clinical Contexts: A Practical Guide, at the Research Symposium in August 2018.

Featuring the perspectives of more than 40 leading international researchers, theorists and practitioners in clinical education, the book provides a bridge between the theoretical aspects of clinical education and the delivery of practical teaching strategies.

It is divided into four sections:

  1. Preparing learners for learning in health workplaces
  2. Making use of specific features of the clinical learning environments
  3. Approaches to assessment in the workplace
  4. Developing and nurturing clinical educator identity

The contributors are renowned international and national experts in health professions education.

A unique feature of the book is the use of case studies or stories of typical challenges encountered by both learners and educators in clinical placement settings. ​

The cases are used to bring to life and illustrate education theory and practice.​
