Thursday 8 September - Concurrent session 5: Education Stream

Creativity in developing education in clinical practice: symposia on workplace learning culture.
The complexity of workplace learning in healthcare influences the opportunities for an individual practitioner’s scope for skill development. This is due to learning being constrained by the multitude of interactions and cultural artefacts that either enhance the individual’s opportunities for education or, challenge the abundance of affordances that such a workplace setting, as healthcare, has to offer. Engaging with workplace pedagogy connects staff with change potential at both organisational and personal levels. This situated learning advances the capacity for individual practitioners and their teams to expand their sphere of influence, increasing out into organization wide, sustainable cultural change. However, in facilitating the development of education for clinical practice, a critical consideration is whether the clinical environment supports a learning culture. Critical creativity and appreciative inquiry are two approaches that will be utilised in this workshop to enable participants to map out their workplace learning cultures. Understanding the central constructs that support workplace learning is important for educators in their facilitation of practitioners and students’ learning and skill development.
