Casey Parker (who you’ll know from BroomeDocs) and I were lucky enough to moderate a panel discussion on education at smaccGOLD.
The fantastic participants were:
- Jonathan Gatward, Intensivist, Australia
- Rob Rogers, Emergency Physician, USA
- Victoria Brazil, Emergency Physician, USA
- Damian Roland, Paediatric Emergency Physician, UK
- Irma Bilgrami, Intensivist, Australia
- Lauren Westafer, Emergency Medicine Trainee, USA
Questions discussed include:
- Teaching in the context of a busy ED or ICU, including within the limits of the 4 hour rule: sniper teaching, flipping the classroom, in situ simulation and 5 minute teaching
- How do we know if a FOAM resource is valid? Does FOAM lead to ‘Swiss Cheese’ learning? FOAM versus curricula?
- What is the role of Wikipedia as a learning resource? Should FOAM creators be working on Wikipedia?
- How to promote inter-professional and inter-specialty education?
- What about resources for subspecialties like PICU?
- How can junior doctors engage senior doctors in teaching on the job?
- What advice should we give to trainees who want to get involved in education?
- What is the best way to use 2-3 hours of protected teaching time each week?
