Connecting the Dots: Longitudinal Data-Driven Coaching to Promote Self-Reflection, Targeted Learning, and Growth

Presenters: Linda Tewksbury, MD, MHPE, and Colleen Gillespie, PhD

One of the main highlights of our retreat was a workshop on the topic of coaching using student performance data. Attendees at the event worked in small groups to discuss the opportunities and challenges of a coaching model using longitudinal student assessments to drive student learning. Faculty, students, residents, and staff were asked to identify patterns, discrepancies, and gaps in longitudinal student assessments and reflect from the perspective of coach, learner, and educator. Each group also discussed strategies for conducting constructive, learner-driven conversations between coach and learner that promote self-reflection, targeted learning, and growth.
