Most recents (16)

First week of class at @MITSloan for @MITSloanFellows has been intense. Lots of learning on #mindst to move into or affirm #growthmindset - one of the videos we watched was on “Thinking Fast and Slow” or two systems in our brain.…
A few pictorial representations and some humor. In our fast-paced world it is easy to rely on mental models or trusted individuals instead of verifying facts or being thoughtful

Interestingly I found that some scientist can be living in system 1 based on trust in own expertise ImageImageImageImage
That seems particularly relevant now given how blindsided so many institutions were by the #pandemic, with healthcare excutives & policy makers

seeing familiar patterns

not staying aware of the expected but rare event

Today, I want to share with you three lessons my mother taught me which has helped me greatly:

Whilst growing up, my mother taught me to be a provider for my family. She said I must not be looking up to my wife for money before I can support my...
family. She said that way, I will lose respect and self-confidence. By God's grace I have a wife who have supported me greatly in every way but I have not made it a habit. My mother saw that I was cooking one day and said ”that was good but your efforts must be more.....
towards equipping yourself to be able to provide for your family as many women are suffering unnecessarily. You must go out, pull off all the stops, work hard with pain, work hard with tears and joy to bring home abundance but my son you can't do that by always........

One result of my daughter doing college from home is that I’m more aware of what her assignments are.
One recent assignment was so dumb it reminded me of one reason I pulled her out of elementary school for homeschooling.
It was, of course, a #math assignment.
Specifically for..
the "cultural component" of Calculus.
This week's "cultural" assignment was to watch this Jo Boaler video and then "dialog" with someone about it:
The video has it all: how there's no such thing as an inherent talent for math; that it's all about #growthMindsets (sorry, that's been debunked); that math is not about right-or-wrong answers; that brain science supports counting on your fingers...

🤩I am constantly marveled by the endless ways in which we #Pathology and #LabMedicine, can use Twitter to engage, share, support & learn from each other. Here is the link to my presentation that celebrates the unlimited opportunities to harness Twitter👉🏽 Image
Like the #SolarEclipse that occurred in August 2017, to me, Twitter has been a community wide experience of marveling a visual process that can create a burst of awe at an organic velocity. It's really exciting to be engaged in this global experience. Image
#AcademicTwitter is using Twitter at the University and Research setting to teach. It has wide range benefits and I recommend reading the following article written by @soragnilab and @Aiims1742 published in @nature that describes this phenomenon.… ImageImage

To help my students study for their finals I’ve put together an ABC list of Science of Learning concepts: study smarter not harder @UTM @UTMBiology #ScienceOfLearning #EdChat #Education @AcademicChatter #GrowthMindset @shoshanahjacobs @EdScientists @joshua_r_eyler Thread 1/
A: Active Learning

It doesn’t mean moving while learning. It means being actively engaged in deep learning: thinking, questioning, answering vs passive learning. Active learning could be discussions, think-pair-share, worksheets, case studies & more. 2/…
B: Blended Learning

Combines in-class & out-of-class learning through tech. One value of this could be increased collaborative learning online and student engagement. 3/

How to be a deliberate educator with @CincyIM @mededsall @DrDanSchumacher @Midwest_MedPeds @kelzj3

1. Be systematic, thoughtful & innovative with curriculum development

Use Kern’s 6 steps to curriculum development
2. Frame educational activities towards the learner, not the teacher

Work towards #coproduction

3. Take a scholarly approach

This weekend I posted a #thread about #PersonalStatements. It got a lot of attention- much of it good, some critical.

In the spirit of a #GrowthMindset I decided to lean in to the criticisms and try and improve it.

The content of the original #thread was true to my thoughts about the topic, but was written in a way that did not give proper context to the role of the PS in the process. It was also completely tone-deaf in that the voice I used was condescending and mean. And that is not me.
So I’m considering that thread what @ANNELAMOTT would call a #ShittyFirstDraft. The following draft incorporates feedback from the @Twitter #meded community into something I hope is a bit more useful (and a lot more friendly).

#MedStudentTwitter #IMResidency

It’s Personal Statement Season!

I help review med student statements and have a few thoughts to share to hopefully help students/faculty along the way.

Its a thread.

👉awesome PDs can chime in @carolinemilneMD @abbyCCim @CincyIM @AmyOxentenkoMD
1⃣Big Picture
The personal statement is an opportunity to weave together
* highlights from CV
* experiences
* personal attributes
Into a cohesive story that explains
- Why you are going into IM
- What you can bring to a program
2⃣ To start, find your PS from your Med School Application

- Think about how you have grown since then...
- What experiences in med school helped you grow into the prepared student you are now ready for residency?

☑️ Write all of this down

I listen to ~90 #Podcasts on a (semi) regular basis. Let me give you a rundown of ALL of them and why you should listen to some amazing #FOAMed, especially for all the new #EmergencyMedicine interns. #FOAMed #MedEd #medtwitter
First of all, you need a good podcast app. I absolutely love Downcast. Great app, gives you more control over playback, downloading, and allows you to categorize your podcasts into playlists (picture 2). This is where you get to customize your #FOAMed experience! #medtwitter
In no particular order,

- Anesthesia and Critical Care Reviews and Commentary (ACCRAC). Great insight into Crit Care from an anesthesia perspective. Coming from EM, this is great to listen to- much different from my day-to-day! #FOAMed #FOAMcc #CriticalCare

I want to put a 🙌 out to #MedTwitter

I may not tweet a lot but I do follow and gain quite a bit so I want to share how it has changed the way I carry myself and provide care.

It’s a thread.
Patient asks the case manager when the doctor is going to see him

I spent 30 minutes updating him earlier that day 🤔

Pre-twitter: ok
Post-twitter: Sir, I’m in charge of your care, tell me a bit more about why you didn’t think I was your doctor.
#WomenInMedicine @AMarshallMD
Overhear the nurses talking about a patient who made a veiled but serious threat to them during the course of care.

Pre-twitter: I’m sorry.
Post-twitter: 😠 that’s not OK. How can I support you?

A quick #thread on the importance of #mentorship and critical #feedback in writing. I’m targeting students, trainees, and younger faculty who struggle with the #mentoring process- I’ll share some vulnerability to demonstrate a #growthmindset- I’ll also recommend 2 books.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited by @AnnalsATS to write an editorial for a paper. I loved the topic so I quickly agreed and started ordering my thoughts. It was a quick turnaround- 2 weeks, so I had to get moving.
I worked diligently on the draft and invited @vitaincerta to co-author- she is smart as a whip and a terrific writer and I knew she would really help to shape a well-written piece. She agreed and I sent her my #ShittyFirstDraft.

1/ There’s someone I know who was starting their business at the same time I was starting mine. Almost a year and a half has passed since that time. That person still hasn’t launched their company. As for @foundergym, you know what’s happened...
2/ When I think about why our outcomes were so different, I realize...

• I’m no smarter than them
• I definitely didn’t do more prep than them before starting
• I certainly don’t have as much time or resources as them
3/ What separates us most, though, is one key 🔑 thing:


Whereas they stood still.

We must invest in a #GrowthMindset methodology as against a #FixedMindset one in raising our Generation Z.

Growth mindset: the understanding that abilities, intelligence and performance can be developed.

Never be among those that accept the status quo as all there can be.
Of all the things we lost as a country over the years, the saddest was the loss of an #ExcellentSpirit.

Battered by poor quality leadership and governance, we the people schooled our minds to believe that “Mediocrity is Excellent”.

No, it is NOT.
Mediocrity ENDANGERS a people.

1/ We launched the first version of Schoolze in 2015. Last 3 years has been a journey of highs & lows but our discovery of #SchoolSuccess factors has been fascinating. Here is how we did it -
2/ Schoolze started as a classroom productivity tool and a year later, we built a school product to measure parental engagement. While at it, we discovered a major shift taking place in K12. To understand this shift, let's revisit some historical K12 facts.
3/ Our current K12 model dates back to the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century. Influenced by conformity, compliance & obedience, it sought people who could take instructions and get a specific job done without being disruptive. #YouYourChildandSchool

1/ I spent the past couple months trying to understand how and why #edtech companies are trying to measure, monitor, and mold students' feelings, mindsets, and ways of thinking. You know what that means...thread incoming.
2/ First, let's look at some of the companies & researchers doing this work.…
3/ Like @AlgebraNationFL. A team of academics, funded by an $8.9m @IESResearch grant, have used the online platform to anonymously collect the clicks and keystrokes of 200,000 Fla. students. The goal: teach the software to pinpoint when kids feel happy, bored, or engaged.
