Asking the Right Questions of Your Students and Residents
Show Notes

Sometimes teaching isn't "telling" but "asking" - asking questions that encourage students and residents to problem-solve in a stepwise manner. Listen in as we discuss a teaching strategy that builds confidence and encourages curiosity in your learners.

We’ve all heard students and residents complain about ‘pimping’ from preceptors during rotations or during their residency experience. Pimping has given a bad name to what can truly be a very effective teaching strategy when done right – Socratic Questioning.  

In this month's episode, I’m speaking with Lindsay Davis of Midwestern University – Glendale, and Kevin Carrasco, a preceptor who has jumped on the Socratic Questioning bandwagon after experiencing what a difference it has made in his effectiveness as a preceptor. During our conversation – they debunked many of the assumptions often made about Socratic questioning as a teaching method and also gave some great advice on how to approach this method in a trusting and safe way for learners.
