Abstract

This project aimed to investigate feasibility and logistics of using video conferencing as a medium for undertaking tri-partite, mid-placement meetings between Physiotherapy students, Clinical Educators and University tutor. As an alteration to existing face-to-face visits, this project also aimed to generate a template for future use. On evaluation 80 percent of educators involved expressed a preference for video conference over a face-to-face visit. Student evaluation expressed concerns over video conferencing for the failing student but enthusiasm for its use for progressive placements. Suggestions were made regarding alteration of materials to maximise development of the student via the altered communications medium.
