Special Interest Group Learning through Work

We would like to invite you to cross some professional boundaries and join this special, collaborative SIG meeting together with the SHE SIG on Workplace Learning.

The Special Interest Group Learning through Work (LEWO SIG) is a multidisciplinary group of researchers with various levels of experience in research and/or clinical practice, and from different backgrounds (e.g. psychology, management, medicine). Our members are fascinated by how healthcare professionals learn in, from and for practice. A few times per year, we organize online sessions of our SIG to stay connected with fellow SHE researchers and to discuss topics of shared interest.

Together with a member from the SIG on Interprofessional Education and Collaboration (IPE/C) we have now organised a joint open and online session for the SHE community.

For this July 3 meeting, we have invited Erin Barry (Uniformed Services University) and Guoyang Zhang (Maastricht University) to share their insights into followership in interprofessional teams. Erin and Guoyang will both give a brief presentation on their PhD research on Leadership and followership, highlighting multiple perspectives, barriers, and enablers as well as possibilities for training followership. We will use their presentations and the attached paper as a starting point for our discussion.
