Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore the experiences of clinical super-visors with a video-based constructivist e-learning program:Feed Our Future and its potential to support supervisors in their assessment of student dietitians’ individual case management (ICM) competence in non-traditional settings. A convenience sample of nine supervisors involved in accredited University ICM placement programs, agreed to pilot-test Feed our Future over a four week period, and be interviewed about their experiences (six in a focus group and three individually).Interviews were transcribed verbatim and thematic analysis conducted using van Manen’s highlighting approach. Participants reported that the e-learning program provided them with access torelevant content, challenged their current practices and supported their development in assessing the ICM competence of student dietitians. Online education can support clinical supervisors in their assessment of students and facilitate a shared understanding of entry-level competence across a range of clinical placement settings.
