Are You Providing Constructive Criticism?


Constructive criticism is about communicating areas of improvement without casting blame. In this session, two experts will teach you how to evaluate learner performance and direct your feedback toward the action—not the learner.

Pharmacist Learning Objectives

At the completion of this application-based activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe effective techniques for evaluating student pharmacists.
  2. List barriers and benefits to providing constructive feedback at various points throughout the evaluation period.
  3. Discuss skills that reduce one’s own resistance to feedback.
  4. Deliver nonjudgmental feedback in role-play scenarios.
  5. Describe characteristics of constructive feedback and how to deliver it effectively.
  6. Describe how and when direct instruction, modeling, coaching, and facilitation should be applied during experiential learning.
