So to start. Who am I? I’m a GP from Northern Ireland who for the last 12 years has worked in medical education in Cardiff University. My job there now involves helping my teaching colleagues, and our students, make decisions about how best to use technology in their education. Back in 2008 I went to two medical education conferences and thought wouldn’t it be great if I could stay in know more about what the people who are attending this event are thinking about and reading and doing every day. I came home and started looking online and discovered that social media might be the answer.
Challenges for healthcare. We know that they will need to be collaborative- to work in teams- and able to find answers in new places. We need a global village to raise these doctors
Unfortunately, many of our students (NIs) rarely get the opportunity to learn & develop their skills for networking & networked learning within formal education. In all our attempts to build learning platforms, to tame the wild & open web, we may be reinforcing a lesson with unintended & negative consequences…
Students must navigate the dissonance between these: Informal / everyday / open Formal / institutional / bounded
Our message: Don’t rely on Google. Don’t use Wikipedia. Discuss in forum in VLE (which will disappear in 3 months…) Here are 6 videos & 12 readings to use…
But the barriers to sharing this kind of local practical information are not only technical, they are more likely to be social. After all email has been around for years. If we were truly happy sharing about our practice then we would have been doing this already. Some of the reasons that we don’t share our practice are concerns about who we are talking to- who is in control? Who has power? What will be the implications of sharing for how we see ourselves and how others see us?
