TTip: Why? When I work with a learner

Posted on

TTip: Why?

When I work with a learner at any stage, I love to ask “WHY”.
This allows the learner to explain their reasoning for their decision and to look at the evidence towards it.
“WHY” does not mean they are “wrong” but allows them the opportunity to question and opens discussions.

Example: How often will you check this lady in labor? Why?
Why would you choose “x” to treat their infections?

Teaching Tips for Cabin Fever

Posted on

Our annual Cabin Fever conference is rapidly approaching.

Since 2013, we have been gathering Teaching Tips for rural faculty.

Originally this was just a paper exercise but last year we migrated to Evernote as a simple means of sharing and editing tips within the group. Contact us if you would like access to this Evernote shared notebook, TTips3.

Two challenges have arisen with this:

  1. You have to have an Evernote account to contribute directly.
  2. It is hard to vote on which are the really good tips.

This year, we think we have found a way to work around this. Check out http://tinyurl.com/ttipps3

As Cabin Fever approaches, we will be posting some of the best tips from previous years here on CURIOS.

Is screening worthwhile?

Posted on

Screening asymptomatic adults only very rarely saves lives. New review: http://ije.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2015/01/14/ije.dyu140.full – disappointing but realistic.
