Background: This AMEE Technology Enhanced Learning Committee’s workshop has a focus on Micro-Scholarship, which provides an innovative and proactive approach to the development and presentation of medical educator scholarship. The core feature is the small step-by-step processes to create, collect and collate, and share a wide variety of content. Specific content can be presented as evidence of scholarship and subjected to open peer review. An essential aspect of Micro-Scholarship is reflection and meta-reflection with active engagement in a community of practice. The use of technology, including blogs and social media, can greatly enhance all the activities associated with Micro-Scholarship. This workshop will provide participants with the theoretical background of Micro-Scholarship, the process and potential use of a wide variety of technologies for Micro-Scholarship, and an opportunity to actively plan how they can develop and present their own scholarship of being a medical educator. In addition, participants will develop their approach to meta-reflection and identify supportive communities of practice and mentors.
