We want to support you in offering the best practical experience possible for your student. Here's a snapshot of the support that's available to you as a practice educator:

  • face-to-face workshops
  • the OEE office—always available for advice or support via phone or email

The OEE Partner Resource Centre

The OEE Partner Resource Centre houses accredited and non-accredited training for practice educators and community partners, as well as the relevant course materials pertaining to our experiential courses. The courses within are set up to communicate the responsibilities and expectations of practice educators and community partners participating in our program and to ensure seamless access to all resources. Required training for experiential partners hosted on the Resource Centre reviews important information and the fundamentals needed to assist your development as an effective practice educator or community partner, and ensure a successful and rewarding precepting experience for both yourself and your students.
