Workshop Description: This workshop will focus on identifying individual deliberate practice activities to match diagnostic feedback from the VQAS. We will compare different activities to show which best fit areas of improvement.  

  • Participants will be able to identify 3 activities they can do to target specific skill areas
  • Participants will be introduced to a work plan template as a part of long-term planning for skill development (use the one from INT 133/134)
  • Participants will learn to use their diagnostics to inform their work plan
