Portfolios are widely used in medical education, not only to stimulate learners to reflect on their experiences and development, but also as a source of information for authentic assessment. Portfolios are often used in combination with mentoring. In this workshop the participants will be introduced in the possibilities of portfolios and mentoring.  After a short introduction, participants will practice with the assessment of portfolios and mentoring. The workshop can facilitate participants with different levels of expertise on portfolios and mentoring.

Key Insights from Education Research that Drive Future Medical Education

Current health care education heavily relies on information transmission or content delivery to students. Yet educational research shows that delivery is only a minor part of learning. Dr. Erik Driessen will discuss key areas of educational research relevant to medical education. In essence, it is about encouraging students to invest time in learning, and use that time as effectively as possible. Assessment, goal-oriented learning and feedback are essential ingredients, and teachers are key figures.
