Join the ACEN webinar
‘Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for assessing WIL’
Topic: A presentation on an ACEN Grant awarded in 2016 on ‘Putting the trust into assessing work integrated learning – Developing a process for embedding Entrustable Professional Activities as an authentic form of assessing work integrated learning.’
Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) rephrase expected outcomes and milestones in terms of a few key complex tasks that a proficient professional would be able to perform independently in their entirety (Ten Cate O, 2005). It uses the professional language of supervisors in the workplace rather than forcing supervisors to understand and use educational language to produce a score.
This webinar will present the findings on developing a process to design EPAs. Observations include the rapidity with which people form their own definition of EPAs and the importance of embedding professional development in the design process.
