Who do you want to be?

We can ask healthcare providers what they need to learn – and educators are asking this question often. The interesting part is we often get what people want to learn, not necessarily what they need to learn. Sometimes, they aren’t even sure.

The Missing Question

There are tons of evaluation/survey questions asking about what you want to learn or what topics you find interesting.

However, what if you included, “who do you want to be?”

If this is too existential for learners, you can ask what they hope to accomplish in 1 (or 5) years and look at their goals.

I wonder what types of answers you’d start getting with this one change. If we want better answers, we need to ask better questions.
