The College is hosting a series of two webinars designed to provide RANZCR supervisors with an overview of programmatic assessment, a key evaluation concept in the Enhanced Training Program to be launched in 2022.
Clinical Supervisors will have a more defined role in the Enhanced Training Program, therefore we encourage all Directors of Training and Clinical Supervisors to participate in both sessions. The webinars will be co-facilitated by Dr Julie Ash from the Prideaux Centre for Research in Health Professions Education, Flinders University, and Dr Brendan Grabau, a change management and leadership consultant in the postgraduate medical education and training space, and currently, interim Training Advisor to RANZCR.
Session One: Tuesday 13 April Session Two: Tuesday 20 April
Session One: Thursday 22 April Session Two: Thursday 29 April
All sessions will take place between 11am and 1pm AEST
Programmatic assessment moves away from focusing on individual barrier or summative assessments and is a move toward a suite of assessment components that contribute to a complete view of the learner. A single assessment or even several equivalent assessments will not provide information for a complete picture. Programmatic assessment provides a feasible framework for utilising a combination of methods that counters the limitations of individual assessment tools to gather information about a learner and to create an overall global view of the learner.
A global view enables and informs decision-making about a learner. Programmatic assessment considers a range of assessment tasks across a continuum of low to high stakes assessment.
