Tending the Garden-Coaching Students to Cultivate Learning and Academic Success

From the 2022 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (recorded 3/14/2022)
Presented by Carol Rentas, PhD, MT(ASCP)SC

Coaching, mentoring, and tutoring—how are these methods used to guide instruction? In this presentation, we will review models of instructional coaching and their application to medical laboratory education. To further illustrate the utility of coaching programs, we will share feedback from students who used coaching to ensure academic success.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the use of the coaching, mentoring, and tutoring models to reach academic milestones.
  • Apply instructional coaching techniques to foster academic success in medical laboratory students.
  • Assess each student's progress and translate that feedback into actionable steps to meet present and future instructional goals.
