Changing Conversations One Debrief at a Time

Date: 15 Dec 2022

Presented by: Carla Ferreira, Associate Professor | Kymberley Bontinen, Lecturer @ UBC Nursing

Room: via Zoom

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

As academics, we are all too familiar with providing and receiving feedback. At the heart of this practice is the hope for growth and development. However, providing and receiving feedback may be challenging as we search for the 'right' way to get the dialogue going. In this presentation, you will gain insight into what we mean by the advocacy/inquiry method of debriefing. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore how this type of debriefing can inform their unique contexts, and practice how to (re)structure conversations into dialogues that facilitate (and encourage) reflection for growth and development.
