The Mirror Exercises are a series of reflective questions that can be applied to the Ida Institute's collection of re-enacted clinical encounters with hearing-impaired patients in audiology clinics. These videos are based on real clinical situations filmed by the Ida Institute and afterwards re-enacted verbatim by actors.
The purpose of the Mirror Exercises are to identify areas of professional development and challenges and to enrich clinical practice by learning to reflect by watching others in similar situations.
The Mirror Exercises are developed in collaboration with our participants, who have worked with the exercises and provided feedback to the Ida Institute.
The Mirror Exercises are developed for use with a colleague, within a larger training group, for teaching, or as an individual thought exercise.
There are 5 different work sheets to use with the Ida Institute clinical videos found below. The exercises on these worksheets can be used with any of the videos. The questions are set in a sequential order, but feel free to use and combine them in a way that fits your needs.
