This is the presentation that I gave at the recent SAAHE conference in Port Elizabeth.
This is the presentation that I gave at the AMEE conference earlier today. It’s the results of a systematic literature review I did as part of my PhD, where I looked at the use of blended learning in clinical education. The abstract doesn’t give much information owing to the fact that I had to be very brief with my submission. The presentation is (a little) more detailed.
Here’s the abstract:
Here’s the presentation (better to view at Prezi.com, space is limited here):
My presentation at the SAAHE conference is a more in-depth look at the same project that I presented at the conference in 2010. The key points I wanted to make were that:
- Students struggle to develop practice knowledge because it is hidden from them i.e. they can’t “see” our thinking process as we reason our way through clinical issues
- One way to externalise practice knowledge is by sharing experiences and outcomes as colleagues or peers
- Social networks facilitate that sharing
- Reflection needs to be facilitated and structured, otherwise students feel lost
- Pedagogically sound teaching principles must be integrated no matter what tools you’re using
Here is the presentation that I gave earlier today:
I’ve been doing a lot of writing this year, trying to catch for lost time at the end of last year, with the result that I’ve been thinking about writing a lot. At times, it had become more like getting through a list of tasks than the expression of meaningful ideas, which is why I really enjoyed this presentation by @thesiswhisperer. This was a useful reminder that there are many different approaches to writing for publication, and it gave me a few ideas on how I could step out of my usual routine.
A few days ago I gave a presentation to our faculty on the use of innovative technologies in teaching practice with specific reference to clinical education. I’ve been using Prezi a bit because I wanted to explore alternative ways of doing presentations. Here it is:
