Yesterday, I posted a review of an Academic Medicine education article on how to prepare medical students for their clinical clerkships, based on the Kolb learning cycle model. My blog post is now also linked and searchable from the Research Blogging network at http://researchblogging.org. Thanks to Life in the Fast Lane, who told me about the site.
I need your help with a project!
My poster on blogging was accepted to the annual UCSF Academy of Medical Educator’s Education Day. Feelings of joy and validation were quickly followed by terror and inadequacy.
In order to get my poster costs reimbursed, I have to get feedback from my co-authors and incorporate that feedback into the poster. As you can see from the poster title on top, I have no co-authors! Since you are all my virtual co-authors, I thought I’d solicit for comments and suggestions.
Thanks to LifeInTheFastLane, you can check out all the current EM bloggers out there with their Twitter name and RSS feed links! I had no idea there were so many. I can appreciate how much time and effort it took to compile this list. Fantastic job, guys.
Occasionally, I get a rare – “Hey congrats on the article!” comment from residents or students. It’s usually in reference to my ACEP News column that comes out every 3 months on Tricks of the Trade. However, I got about 3 shout-outs in the past 2 days. How odd.
Then I saw one of our office staff who was reading EM News. “Hey cool!” she said. Totally confused, I realized that I was quoted on the front page of this week’s publication about iPhone applications in EM. Many months ago, I had done a brief telephone interview with the writer.
Dr. Rob Rogers (Univ Maryland) has come up with yet another podcast edition for the EMRAP Educator’s Edition website. In this recording, Rob interviews EM faculty about education issues. Go to EMRAP Educator’s Edition website to listen to podcast.
I recently encountered a thought-provoking video about how technology is transforming education in the classroom setting. We are slowly experiencing a culture shift in how learners are learning. It follows that this should affect how teachers should be teaching. Briefly, the author lays out the progression of educational technology in 3 phases.
