Teaching the Teachers

We feel pretty strongly as a group of clinical teaching fellows at U.H.C.W. (University Hospital Coventry & Warwick) that teaching the teachers is in fact an essential part of medical education.

We're running a focus group with the aim on doing some research into peoples attitudes towards medical education (teaching the teachers courses).

We're currently look at setting up a questionnaire on this based around some simple questions generated from some focus groups. Its pretty much our first time at setting up focus groups, but we seem to have had quite a good response from he junior doctors so far.

We'll wait and see the outcomes of whats happens on Friday when we get our second group of lucky participants up to chat about what they think about education!

Multimedia Flash Video Content

Im interested in peoples opinions on multimedia flash video content for student education. Ive developed a couple of example flash videos for student education at UHCW and alhtough its quite hard work, the contents seem to be quite prominsing.
