Reflection is a critical part of learning to become a doctor. Yet, it is difficult to devote time to this important practice during teaching encounters.
In this informal breakfast, Dr. Stephen Brookfield, an expert on reflection, critical thinking, and adult learning, will lead a conversation on how to incorporate reflective practice methods into every encounter with learners.
Breakfast will be served.
