No matter what we do or where we work we get feedback on our actions and behaviour. In (medical) education the feedback can make the difference between a successful career and failure to achieve our goals.
So this week we will share thoughts about feedback. What works well. What does not work well. And how we learn the difference.
I found three helpful links. One above from University of Edinburgh. The second is a slideshow from University of Texas Paediatric department on Feedback and evaluation in medicine delivered in 2012. 2012-03-02 Providing and Receiving Feedback in Medicine (Glen Medellin, MD, Jean Petershack, MD)
Last night saw the first medical education twitter chats running under the #meded twitter hashtag. Anne Marie Cunningham gives some helpful background to the first meded twitter chat over on her blog Wishful thinking in medical education.
Here’s the transcript of the first of the meded chats which ran between 21.00 and 22.00 hrs BST. We weren’t sure how much interest there would be and we thought given the time we would largely attract tweeters from Europe. In the event we had a great turn out for the first chat and whilst there was a large UK contingent we also had the Netherlands and Spain represented and a fair number from the US. It was also great to see a good number of medical students engaging in the chat and expressing their views on lectures.
The main themes running through the chat session were
- the use of Twitter in lectures for asking questions
- do many students use laptops in lectures for note taking
- do students use the discussion boards in Blackboard
- what makes a good lecture.
