Spotlight on Debriefing

The evidence supporting debriefing as a powerful method for teaching and learning continues to grow. Because good debriefing doesn't just happen, the NLN is committed to helping nurse faculty acquire the skills to use debriefing effectively. "Learning to Use Debriefing with Good Judgment" and "Learning to Use Debriefing for Meaningful Learning" offer two distinct evidence/theory-based approaches.

bullet On both Friday, August 11 and Monday, December 11, "Learning to Use Debriefing with Good Judgment" will be presented by Mary Fey, PhD, RN, CHSE, Associate Director at the Center for Medical Simulation at Harvard. Participants in this highly interactive workshop will learn foundational skills to use the Debriefing with Good Judgment method during simulation-based educational activities. Using a blended learning model, the course comprises an eight-hour in-person workshop. Optional learning resources will be provided through a learning management system.
bullet "Learning to Use Debriefing for Meaningful Learning," presented by Kristina Thomas Dreifuerst, PhD, RN, CNE, ANEF, associate professor at Marquette University School of Nursing, will take place October 6-7. During this one-and-a-half-day workshop, participants will learn how to: apply evidence-based debriefing methods that use Socratic reasoning to guide students to reflect in, on, and beyond the clinical experience; engage students in critical conversations during debriefing; and use the Debriefing for Meaningful Learning method.
