Perhaps one of the greatest challenges a preceptor has is that of honestly evaluating poor performance in a way that will help get the student either back on track, or connected to the help and support they need, depending on the specific performance issue or issues they are exhibiting. It sounds cold, but in experiential education it has been said more often than once – that sometimes you just have to fail a student for their own benefit and ultimate success. Those conversations are heartbreaking – for the preceptor, for the school’s staff – and most importantly for the students. Listen in as Dr. Lisa Richter and Dr. Kate Newman discuss the evidence and importance of failure in supporting student development.
