Apple of My Eye: Clinical Instruction with Enhance ‘Bug-in-the-Eye’ Technology
Minnesota State University, Mankato
Counseling faculty at Minnesota State University, Mankato needed a less obtrusive means of providing feedback to counseling students during clinical exercises. The counseling program had been using “bug in the ear” audio technology to enable faculty feedback during simulations and live counseling sessions, but students indicated that the audio was too distracting both for their learning and for their patients.Through the use of Apple watches (aka “bug in the eye” technology), faculty discovered a way to provide students immediate feedback on their counseling performance while also remaining unobtrusive.
