A new book by Jo Finch is published next month: Supporting struggling students on placement, a practical guide.
Jo draws on both her own experience training Practice Educators, and international multi-disciplinary research and literature. Chapters examine the signs and symptoms of a struggling student, emotional impact and emotional processes of decision making, and strategies for working effectively with students and academic institutions. Reflection exercises enable you to bring these methods to your own practice. The ideas will further knowledge and engender confidence for any teachers, assessors and supervisors on courses with a practice learning component.
Jo was a speaker at the ScOPT conference in 2016.
We are getting a copy to review, so watch this space.
