About this session

Talk as joint social activity impacts communication practices, learning, and patient care. This session explores the important role of talk in health professions education. We can steer the talk of practice through formal means but also through informal means by fostering psychological safety through supportive relationships and learning environments. Lessons learned from healthcare debriefing will help us identify ways to address the ‘process’ and ‘content’ of talk of clinical practice to promote learning and patient care. These synergies have practical applications for learning conversations in workplace and simulation settings in three key ways: how we design curricula, how we develop faculty, and how we support learners.

Learning Objectives:

Following this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Define ‘talk’ and its role in clinical education
  • Discuss how simulation and workplace talk inform each other
  • Explain how talk contributes to team inclusiveness

Equipment Requirements

The webinar is delivered via Zoom, a web conferencing platform. All materials and course interactions will occur online. In order to participate fully, each person must have:

  • Their own computer, tablet, or mobile phone
  • Reliable high-speed internet access (minimum 3 Mbps upload/download speed)
  • Microphone and speakers (built-in, headset or from webcam)
  • Optional: Webcam


We are aware that internet connection speed and bandwidth is not consistent globally and thus can cause intermittent interruption of audio and/or video from the webinar. We do everything we can to minimize problems with streaming data; however, please be forewarned that poor connections may result in slow or choppy audio and video. We will make the entire webinar recording available after it concludes in the Resources section of our website, including sharing any links referenced during the webinar.
