Course description

A good osteopath is not necessary a good osteopathy teacher. This 2 day course focusses on the osteopathic teaching skills and has the aim to provide optimal clinical tutor training. The content is based both on clinical tutoring experience, as on osteopathy classroom teaching. The participant is provided with tips & tricks to optimally facilitate the learning process of the student and to become a better tutor & teacher. The content is direct applicable and will make both tutoring and teaching an even better experience. This course has general didactical principles, but focusses on the osteopathic teaching and on what makes osteopathic teaching specific. This course is given by an instructor who is both teacher, osteopathy teacher, clinical tutor and didactically trained. The course strives to be interactive and meet the fears and expectations of the participants.
