There is nothing more important than the practitioner's ability to listen carefully and think deeply in making the best decisions and clinical judgments that lead to quality patient care. When it comes to teaching, learning, and assessing clinical reasoning all health professionals struggle in finding the best way to facilitate learning and advance the development of clinical expertise. This course will provide an overview of key concepts central to teaching clinical reasoning through the development of a master adaptive learner (MAL) - a learner that can assess, adjust, plan, and learn while engaged in clinical practice. The course will address the central importance of learning concepts in the development of clinical expertise and clinical reasoning. Participants will engage in small group learning activities that focus on teaching and learning strategies that promote reflection, self-monitoring and the development of the master adaptive learner in clinical environments across the learner continuum.
