Show & TEL: Sharing your Innovations in Health Professions Education

Presenter: Daniel Salcedo

July 2021.

In association with AMEE Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Committee

Introduction: Not all great ideas in Health Professions Education (HPE) are formatted as research projects. Educators from around the world are constantly experimenting and discovering new ways to improve how we teach and learn.

Unfortunately, it is often difficult to share theses ideas with the rest of our community. 

At AMEE we recognise the need for space where educators, students, and other health education professionals can come together to share ideas, ask questions, and give advice about learning innovations that are transforming the way we teach and learn.

AMEE Show & TEL is a multimedia blog where AMEE members can share their brilliant ideas and keep up to date with the latest trends and technologies in HPE.

Educational needs or gaps to be addressed:

This webinar aims to inform the AMEE community about the new Show & TEL community engagement channel which will be launched this June.

Aim/Learning Objective: Through this session participants will:

1. Learn about the AMEE Show & TEL platform

2. Understand what kind of content can be shared through the platform

3. Apply guidelines and content formats for posting in the Show & TEL blog

4. Ask questions and make suggestions for the continuing development of the Show & TEL platform

Anticipated Outcomes: participants will learn more about the Show & TEL platform and enrol in the Show & TEL newsletter.

Target Audience: Members of the AMEE community interested in Technology-Enhanced Learning and educational innovation.

1.  Identify benefits and challenges to developing open, sharable digital curriculum.
2.  Describe case examples of shared curriculum.
3.  Discuss digital tools and practical strategies for shared curriculum development.

Anticipated Outcomes:
This webinar should encourage educators globally to become more engaged in shared online curriculum development. The webinar should generate interest in a planned series of workshops that will provide educators to further develop skills and competencies in developing shared curriculum development.

Target Audience:
This webinar is for educators with an interest in developing open digital curricular materials that can be shared with the global education community.

Implementing the AMEE Consensus Statement on Planetary Health and Education for Sustainable Healthcare

Presenters: Michelle Mclean, Bond University, Australia, Trevor Gibbs, AMEE Scotland, Caroline Wellbery, Georgetown University School of Medicine, USA, Kathleen Leedham-Green, Imperial College London, UK

May 2021.

Summary: The problem will be identified, the ecological crisis our planet is facing and its impacts on health and well-being. This webinar will outline AMEE's support for sustainability which has led to the development of a Consensus Statement on Planetary Health and Sustainable HC education. The CS is a guide for HC educators as it offers suggestions in terms of learning outcomes, activities and assessment as well as providing a range of useful links for various resources that can be used. Practical examples will be provided.

Most HP curricula do not include planetary health or sustainable health care. The current generation of HP students need to be prepared for dealing with a different world but more importantly need to be a part of the solution through leadership and innovation.

Educational Needs or Gaps to be Addressed:
How to integrate planetary health and sustainable healthcare into the various HP curricula as this will be new for many educators.

Anticipated Outcomes:
Discussion about how the CS can guide the integration planetary health and sustainable healthcare into health professions curricula, with practical examples. Networking and collaboration opportunities as well as raising awareness of how sustainable healthcare (or lack of) affects health. Participants will have:

1. Explored and reflected on the Consensus Statement and curricular examples.
2. Identified challenges and strategies for its implementation within their context.

Target Audience:
All HP educators; students; curriculum developers.

Presenter: Professor John Sandars, Edge Hill University Medical School, UK

March 2021.

 - Develop core skills for designing and reporting evaluations of TEL interventions.

Anticipated Outcomes:
The intended outcome is an increase in the quality of the design and reporting of evaluations of TEL interventions.
