Learning outcomes using video in supervision and peer feedback during clinical skills training

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


New technology and learning principles were introduced in a clinical skills training laboratory (iLab). The intension was to move from apprenticeship to active learning principles including peer feedback and supervision using video. The objective of this study was to evaluate student learning outcomes in a manual skills training subject using video during feedback and supervision.

The iLab classroom was designed to fit four principles of teaching using video. Two of these principles were (a) group work using peer-feedback on videos produced by the students and, (b) video supervision of clinical skills (formative assessment). Demonstrations of these principles will be presented as video podcasts during the session. The learning outcomes of video supervision and peer-feedback were assessed in an online questionnaire survey.

Results of the supervision showed large self-evaluated learning outcome especially on key skills. Learning outcomes of peer-feedback were positive on all evaluated domains. Results will be presented during the session.

The learning outcomes using video during peer-feedback and supervision are mostly favourable. Students have generally welcomed video as a valuable learning method in skill training. To succeed using video during clinical skills training we recommend four focus areas:

1. Designing an easy-to-use skills training laboratory.
2. Implementation of workshops and guidance for teachers in order to become familiar with (a) the technology (software and hardware), (b) the new teaching principles.
3. Thorough information of expectations to the students in terms of using video.
4. Specific student instructions in how to give and receive feedback.
