3/ Often when teaching, online or IRL, many of us use resources to help us organize our thoughts.

That may be PowerPoint slides, a Word document, white board, or even pieces of paper (*gasp*).

1/ In response to my Twitter polls, I received many responses from teachers/learners regarding successes & difficulties with #VirtualLearning

I wanted to summarize & share those responses before starting weekly #MedEdTwagTeam tweetorials on #VirtualTeachingTips w/ @GStetsonMD Image
2/ First, from a teacher standpoint, 70% of you mentioned the lack of interaction as the most difficult aspect of #VirtualTeaching.

I will have lots of tips & tricks to increase interaction for #VirtualTeaching in upcoming tweetorials.

3/ Some other difficulties included:

✅Inability to “read the room” – i.e. the non-verbal cues from learners
✅Disliking how “quiet” teaching can be (with everyone else muted)
✅Worries about competing with students’ other distractions (email, internet, etc)

1/ I'm taking a break from #COVID19 infographics and my planned #VirtualTeaching thread this week to provide some concrete #MedEd recommendations for things that all of us can DO to create equal opportunities for black trainees and faculty.
2/ #DEI is the bare minimum. As white faculty, fellows, residents, and students, we are privileged and need to speak up to ADVANCE black individuals.
3/ Here is one concrete recommendation today (which hopefully is already a part of ALL programs who interview students, residents, fellows, and faculty):

✅Require all interviewers to complete implicit bias training.
