Using a Digital Knowledge Repository to Personalise Learning in Medical Education: A Follow-up Report to TeL2013





http://piktochart.com/ vs http://padlet.com/ (overview of presentation below, screenshot padlet wall)

Over 6000 anonymised radiology cases + over 6000 curated online educational resources
(as of March 31st, 2015)

I now present exclusively using blogs and interactive digital (padlet) walls, with content from an indexed, hyperlinked eRepository - undergraduate, postgraduate, CME/CPD settings (Continuing Medical Education/Continuing Professional Development, both for clinical radiology, and medical education)

Use these websites to both document the teaching, and student engagement process + form the basis for digital scholarship (a record + self reflection, include indices of viewership/engagement/impact, widely available for peer review, critique and feedback, for others to cite and build upon)

Currently clinical radiology/medical education faculty development blogs/websites have collectively > 250,000 pageviews (as of March 31st, 2015)

Positive feedback from users, and teaching faculty (local and international)

15 peer reviewed conference papers accepted for presentation (local and international), one invited case study for book chapter (International Handbook for Medical Education), one invited paper (Medical Teacher), one citation in recent Reflection on Social Media in Medical Education (MedEdWorld)

Invitations to speak about, and share (presentations, symposia and workshops; local and international)

Appointed member of AMEE eLearning committee, and AMEE 2015 pre-conference 2 day eLearning symposium organising committee

Adoption by others (local and international)
e.g. Department eRepository @ NUHS and Learning@NUHS, YLLSoM active and collaborative learning initiatives; projects initiated as part of Singapore International Foundation programs in Sri Lanka; collaboration with resident at Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of British Colombia, Canada

Local institutional material (see examples above), systematically supplemented by instructional cases, and eLectures from recommended online collections and repositories (some examples below).
