Principles Underpinning Learning, Simulation and Education (PULSE)
The inaugural Academy of Clinical Educators (ACE) Conference is an opportunity for clinicians involved in teaching, training, and supervision, to gain insight into best practice, topical issues, key strategies and areas for trainer development.
The conference will explore issues and challenges related to teaching principles in a clinical setting.
The programme will cover learning and teaching skills, effective communication, coaching, dealing with difficult students, and making the learner experience meaningful and engaging.
Conference delegates will also have the opportunity to debate and share experiences among other trainers, working in a range of clinical areas. The programme is designed specifically for clinicians who hold a named trainer role in secondary care, or who wish to enhance their career by developing their trainer skills.
Delivered by professional training experts and senior clinicians, the programme will provide you with new ideas and perspectives on delivering education and training.
ACE and Excellence in Trainer Development
ACE was established to support clinicians involved in the development of training and development programmes for the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. The College is committed to supporting the development of trainers, to maintain high quality standards and best practice. Recent guidelines from the GMC regarding trainer development and the increased need for formal trainer recognition mean it is even more important today to provide support, development opportunities and recognition to our clinical educators. The first ACE conference is an opportunity to share best practice and offer appropriate CPD opportunities in this area.
