Two one-hour workshops promoting the application of the Interactive, Constructive, Active and Passive (ICAP) Theory of cognitive engagement were held with The Better Health Generation. The program coached participants in the creation of constructive and interactive professional development activities for use at upcoming professional days. Ideas generated by participants included:
- pre-surveys and case studies to ground forethought, and enable presenters to build responses, feedback, and extension activities into their presentation.
- explicit identification of key messages and their significance to practice.
- case study discussions with reported actions and anticipated outcomes.
- synchronous surveys and discussions.
Approximately 40 allied health professionals attended the workshops, with feedback recognising the practical application of ICAP theory to their context.
