The ALiEM Team is happy to announce yet another eBook publication: the first volume in the Education Theory Made Practical series. This book was a labor of love written by the inaugural 2016-17 Faculty Incubator class. We are so very proud of all our Faculty Incubator alumni who made this happen. Their hard work has been compiled in this FREE, peer-reviewed eBook. We sincerely feel that it will be useful for all the educators out there, wrestling with the issue of integrating theory into practice.

Academic Primer Series and Curated Collections for Educators: Important Papers for Medical Educators
Members and mentors of the inaugural, 2016-17 ALiEM Faculty Incubator authored 9 narrative reviews in the Academic Primer Series and Curated Collections for Educators on several important medical education topics, which highlight the most important literature and their defined importance for junior educators and faculty developers. To ensure broad compendiums of articles were obtained on each subject, collections of papers were augmented via an open call for additional papers using Twitter. Subsequently, a selection panel comprised of both junior and seasoned educators utilized a 3-round modified Delphi process to identify the best, most relevant papers for medical educators.
