“Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I will remember. Let me do and I will understand.” – Confucius
Demo-do teaching is all about “show me and I will remember.”
Demo-do is a simple process where educators outline what will be demonstrated, then demonstrate the process as it should be performed, then coach the learner through immediately practicing the technique.
Demonstration may seem like a silly thing for clinical preceptors to do with anesthesia learners. Too often, CRNAs & physician anesthesiologists expect learners to just know what to do – having completed the reading & studying ahead of time – and get to work practicing whatever skill is to be taught without getting the chance to see a demonstration. The demo-do process changes all that. By demonstrating skills, learners get to see what they’ve studied performed by an expert just prior to them being expected to perform the skill.
Check out the podcast to get the full run down on this technique that will enhance your clinical teaching and accelerate the time it takes for learners to master what you’re teaching them.
