Facilitating learning in practice

7 Summary

This week you have reviewed the importance of relationships to effective mentoring, both for yourself and for your students. In addition to exploring the key components of effective mentoring relationships you have also considered how to avoid or manage conflict associated with the relationship, the specific issues of how to give feedback as part of open communication and how to use motivation strategies to stimulate and engage students in practice learning.

Next week you will explore the learning opportunities that are available in your practice environment, so keep the ARCS model in mind because you are likely to find useful relationships between these opportunities and ways to motivate your student.
