Re-envisioning Modern Pedagogy: Educators as Curators

Presentation given at SXSWedu on March 6, 2012. The podcast of the presentation can be found here: http://audio.sxsw.com/2012/podcasts/edu/06_Re_envisioning_Ped
AnneMarie Cunningham's insight:

"narrate, curate, share" - I first heard Gardner Campbell say this several years ago at an Open Education conference. In a few years digital curation will be mainstream... I think.

Why does a twittering doctor tweet? The #ASME2012 presentation

Why does a twittering doctor tweet? The #ASME2012 presentation | social media and networks in medical education | Scoop.it

Anne Marie Cunningham (@amcunningham) writes:

 

'"My very first tweet was made in May 2008.

preparing for a seminar on medicine and the media- thinking about health 3.0"

— AnneMarie Cunningham (@amcunningham) May 27, 2008

 

I was invited to join Twitter by a friend who works in IT. It just happens that at the time I was still at work thinking about a teaching session so my first tweet has quite a strong medical education flavour.

 

Like many people I wasn't sure what to actually make of Twitter after this and I left it for several months until I went to two medical education conferences and decided that social media could serve a purpose for me.

 

But I'm not a techno-evangelist. I believe we have to be very careful about how we use technology and to consider how it impacts on relationships.

 

If you google web 2 (a term for newer social technologies including social media) sceptic then the top result is actually about me, because I have disputed with other doctors in the past that these technologies are having any impact on our clinical practice. And I am still uncertain about this.

 

However I am certain, and have decided that I can allow myself to be evangelical, about the benefits that can be had for anyone who is at this conference and is therefore interested in improving medical education. I started becoming aware of this a short while after starting my own blog in October 2008 which is why in 2009 I gave a presentation at [the Association for the Study of Medical Educaton Annual Scientific Meeting] ASME about how social media and networks could develop and support scholarship in medical education. However, this did not lead to the expected paradigm shift in scholarly communication. So I have decided that I might need to be a little more direct with you this time. And this is why I am going to give you 10 reasons why you should be on Twitter now.'

Hi AnneMarie, great to hear your voice! I feel like we are travelling the same road, you in medical education and me in occupational therapy education. I am also doing my PhD and my thesis is looking at "The role of online technology for information management and knowledge transfer in occupational therapy". All the best with ALL of your endeavours in your f2f and virtual worlds!
Cheers, Anita

Twitter Finals Revision Group: How twitfrg Works

The idea for this group is that a topic/area of study for revision will be decided (ideally by voting, but initially most likely by the admins). A revision document will then be posted on the blog, usually with a few relevant MCQs for you to try 2- 3 days before the designated date and time for discussion.

AnneMarie Cunningham's insight:

Want help with revising for your medical finals? Here is teh backgroung to #twitfrg - a finals revision group on Twitter- a collaboration between doctors and students across the UK. The future??
