THEN Donald Clark made a bold statement in his 2012 TedX talk, ‘There have been more pedagogic changes in the last 10 years than in the last 1000.’ This statement was made 10 years ago. I would be bold enough to go further and highlight there have been EVEN more pedagogic changes in these last […]

I read this article with interest and despair. Digital Transformation in Healthcare in 2021: 7 Key Trends Healthcare as a money-spinner does not sit well with me as someone who has both benefited from and worked within the UK NHS for almost 15 years. I am not naive enough to think that a significant proportion […]

Should medical innovations be regulated, and if so, by whom? The advent of the digital age has afforded multiple opportunities for innovation in clinical education.  This has accelerated as a natural consequence of digitization of educational content, and more recently by the opportunities afforded by the enforced need for remote learning.  Multiple resources exist and could be […]

Innovators are […]

So, digital literacy is a given, but can be improved. Sadly there is no wikidigimed…and this may be the fault of poor quality control of content production, storage and interpretation; if being a healthcare professional was easy, everyone would do it, right? Digital professionalism is another beast altogether: how to be professional in a digital […]

This week’s tutorial was a reminder and an opportunity to discuss our assignments. My thoughts have progressed through…– there is an increasing reliance on smartphones for instant information gratification– how do we ensure that what we’re seeing ‘on the hoof’ is relevant to the situation we are in?– the use of software such as UpToDate […]

Due to clinical commitments, I have been unable to attend all tutorial sessions. I am really grateful to my fellow course mates who have attended, as I have found conversations in the tutorials extremely stimulating. I’m circling around the area of digital decision support systems and how they impact deep, transformational learning. I wanted to […]
