AMEE/MEW Webinar 143:  Every Teacher is a Scholar
Ronald M Harden, AMEE, UK

Scholarship is not the exclusive province of an elite group of teachers.

AMEE/MEW Webinar 141: Top Tips for Teaching Social and Behavioural Sciences in Medical Education
Dr Jeni Harden, University of Edinburgh and Dr Kathleen Kendall, University of Southampton                                                                  

There is a clear body of evidence that social and behavioural factors influence illness across the medical spectrum. Calls are now being made to reform medical education in order to equip graduates with the skills required to identify societal and behavioural factors that contribute to illness or influence treatment. This requires medical schools to ensure that social and behavioural sciences are integrated into the curriculum in ways that are timely, relevant and will facilitate students’ learning. In this webinar we present our ‘top tips’ structured around three overarching aims concerning institutional support, teaching and learning activities, and shared learning among teachers.

This webinar will be of interest to anyone with a responsibility for teaching the social and behavioural sciences and to curriculum developers.

AMEE/MEW Webinar 140: Curriculum Mapping – face the challenge, it will be worth the effort
Dr Olaf Ahlers: Charit√© – Universit√§tsmedizin Berlin Department of Anaesthesiology, LOOOP-Project Berlin, Germany                                               

Background: One of the challenges in curriculum development is to make sure that clear learning objectives are aligned with the intended outcomes/ competencies, assessment, and lectures/ courses/ units/ modules – both within and between different departments/ schools/ faculties. Curriculum mapping ensures this alignment and structures the vast amount of available information (including organisational aspects) in a transparent way which is essential for all accreditation processes.

Aim of webinar: After a short overview of the principles of curriculum mapping followed by some experiences within the international LOOOP network in which 51 curricula in Europe, Africa and Asia are currently mapped. Afterwards, I would like to discuss experiences of webinar participants. Aim of the webinar is to induce a debate between experienced “mappers” and colleagues who are just at the beginning of the process of curriculum mapping – or even still before starting it.

AMEE/MEW Webinar 139: Social media in medical education: The dark and the bright side
Natalie Lafferty: University of Dundee                                               

Social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and blogs have become ubiquitous in individuals’ personal lives, transforming how we communicate, access, consume, share and create online information.  Increasingly these tools are being adopted professionally and for many involved in medical education their use has become a part of daily practice.  Whilst advocates of social media embrace the opportunities provided to support their roles as a teacher, scholar and learner, many others are extremely cautious about their use. Others have attempted to use tools such as Twitter and following poor experiences become highly sceptical.

This webinar will explore both the bright and dark sides of using social media in medical education.  By encouraging educators to look beyond social media as just a tool it aims to encourage a critically reflective approach to their use in medical education.  Consideration will be given to some of the darker issues around privacy, data and the shelf-life of tools together with the common concern around digital professionalism. By going on to considering the educational contexts and role modelling, examples of the bright side of social media will highlight how they can effectively be used to support open cultures of learning and digital scholarship in an increasingly networked world.

AMEE/MEW Webinar 138: Conducting Research in Faculty Development
David M Irby Particia S. O'Sullican, UCSF                              

Background: In 2011, we published a model for studying faculty development that focuses on the elements of program, participants, facilitators and context situated in both the teaching commons and in the workplace.

Aim of webinar: To focus on conducting research in faculty development.  We will provide a brief review of the literature in that area. Using our model, we will explore potential research questions from paradigmatic lenses of positivism, post-positivism, interpretivism, and critical theory.  We will propose different studies as a source of potential inspiration.

Intended audience:  Those who want to explore deeply how and why faculty development works.

AMEE/MEW Webinar 137: The power of mentoring: a positive approach for workplace implementation to maximise potential                      
Dr Helen Goodyear, Dr Jane Davies-Slowik, Health Education England (West Midlands)                      

Mentoring has existed for thousands of years in a variety of professions and cultures. It is an ongoing transformational process and aims to enhance career, educational, interpersonal and psychological development and enable a person to develop to their full potential. It is applicable throughout a career from being a student to a senior doctor or dentist in clinical practice or management. There are many considerations to think about when setting up a mentoring scheme. This webinar will describe and demonstrate a helpful model and draws upon the facilitators experience with students, doctors and dentists and includes:

•    What is mentoring and how does it differ from coaching?
•    How to choose mentors whether peers, senior trainees or non-career grade doctors/ dentists
•    Skills that mentors require
•    Principles of effective mentoring schemes
•    Initial Training needed
•    Essential ground rules and safeguards
•    Length of mentoring arrangement
•    Ongoing training needs

The aim of the webinar is to provide attendees with a sound knowledge of mentoring, ways of improving their mentoring skills and help them to identify any further training needs. It is aimed at healthcare professionals who are either acting as mentors or who would like to establish a mentoring scheme at their place of work.

AMEE/MEW Webinar 136: International Accreditation: Recognition of International Quality Management Systems
Dan Hunt, MD, MBA, Marta van Zanten, PHD Jennifer Hong, Ed.D Prof David Gordon, LCME; NYU Winthrop Sch of Medicine; Faimer                       

Background: With the explosion of new medical schools around the world, the quality assurance process known as accreditation becomes more and more important.  Equally important are processes to ensure that a country’s accreditation system meets international standards of excellence.   In order to ensure that a country’s accreditation agency meets international standards, the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) and the National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA) have established processes to ensure the quality of a country’s accreditation agency and confer “recognition” status.  

Aim of webinar: This webinar will explain the basics of accreditation and experts from NCFMEA, WFME, and the Foundation for the Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) will  discuss the two  recognition processes; one to ensure US. student access to subsidized loans and the other to maintain access to US residencies and fellowships after 2023.
