We want you in the conversation on medical education.
The high quality journals Medical Education and The Clinical Teacher have revamped websites to leverage current technologies to enhance responsiveness and timely engagement in the conversations generated by the works described therein, while preserving the integrity and high standards expected of the journals.
It’s not enough.
Think of how you follow conversations today. You email, text, tweet, Facebook. You read blogs, online news and commentary with RSS readers, listen to podcasts, and watch online videos.
As e-Editor, I hope to help foster a learning community anchored by the content of the journals. The anchor is not a pin, fixing the content in a static place on the web, but will allow dialogue to pull the ship on the surface in the direction of the current, while not losing site of the core topic that started the discussion. Maritime analogies notwithstanding, this is a place to web-engage (“webgage”) readers in nearly synchronous conversation with the authors, editors, moderators, and each other. As true with any learning community, we will rely on the input of all to continuously shape the processes and features to enhance value for everyone.
The journal homepages link to the articles and podcasts. This site is for moderated threaded discussions that stem from this content.
I invite you to join the conversation as a facilitator, pod-caster, moderator, blogger, tweeter, commentator, contributor, and reader by accessing and adding to the journals’ content through the continuously-expanding methods being modeled, suggested, and implemented by the global medical education community.
