Dear Medical Education readers,
A reminder that tomorrow (15 October) is the first Twitter journal club for the journal Medical Education.
The Publisher has granted free access to the selected article. The article is in the September 2013 issue of Medical Education:
The view from over there: reframing the OSCE through the experience of standardised patient raters, by Jennifer L Johnston, Gerard Lundy, Melissa McCullough and Gerard J Gormley
Three of the authors (JJ, MM, and GG) will be ‘live’ and participating in the Twitter journal club. They have proposed some questions to stimulate some discussion. These questions are now posted on the journal blog. Just point your browser to www.mededuc.com and click ‘Discuss’. hen in the search box enter the article title to be brought directly to the post. Or you can navigate to here: http://wp.me/p2A8cX-hR. T
You can make comments in response to the discussion questions right on the blog, or wait to make comments during the Twitter journal club.
The live Twitter journal club will be on October 15th from 3-4PM GMT. Please note that in order to participate in the live event you must have a twitteraccount so please sign up now by visiting www.twitter.com. After the Twitter journal club event, the editorial staff will capture the tweets around the discussion topics and post them to the Medical Education blog to allow those who were unable to participate in the Twitter discussion to read and comment further.
On October 15th at 3PM, the e-Editor team (Twitter username @mededuceeditor) will be on Twitter with the article authors exchanging Tweets around the discussion questions and article. Each tweet will be tagged with ‘#mededucosce’, so if you’d like to contribute a comment, please be sure to include that hashtag.
We are looking forward to this exciting new event and hope that you are too!
The e-Editor team:
Joshua Jacobs e-Editor and Anuja Jain e-Editor Intern
