Ellen Becker

Every respiratory therapist teaches whether the target audience is patients, health care colleagues, or students in an academic program. How do you respond when a learner “doesn’t get it,” despite repeated attempts? Which tools in the educator’s toolbox are most helpful? This presentation highlights strategies to optimize learning for those who struggle and help them achieve their fullest potential.
