I was asked to nominate speakers to our @mac_peds recently, the BEST speakers I know.
First up to bat was @MGottliebMD ... One of the most productive people I know. (Seriously. He published like 80 papers in 2020. 🤯)
10 Tips for increasing your academic productivity.
Tip #1: Be Open To Ideas
(and keep track of them).
Consider using your smartphone, a diary, a google doc, voice memos. Record all your ideas when they happen. You never know when your best idea will occur.

Thank you to Dr. @RobAnders1 for inviting me to present to Dr. Sarita Verma (@ddsv3) and @TheNOSM at one of their faculty retreats. They asked me to speak about a few things, but I will be tweeting my keynote which focuses on:
*As seen by @TChanMD
As many of you know, I am here on Twitter. So I started my talk by inviting the @TheNOSM crew to engage with me online to talk more after my talk. The convo doesn't have to stop when I log off of WebEx...@Twitter is the ultimate #DigitalCorridor for those in #MedEd & #MedTwitter.

I'm doing a "virtual" visiting scholar stint w/ @ubcMedCHES this week. Today was a day full of exciting new connections & great discussions.
Ended my day with a talk: "Digitizing Health Professions Education via #SoMe
I am now going to TWEET my lecture as a #tweetorial.
I began by situation myself as the current Assistant Dean of #FacDev within the @MacHealthSci Faculty. Much of my content would eventually revolve around what I've learned from #FOAMed and how it's translated to our recent digital transformation of @MacPFD.

Tweeting about #ChairsRounds today for @MacDeptMed. See thread below...
Dr. @MVerhovsek first introduces the panel with an amazing version of the land acknowledgement for our region and talks about her own journey to become anti-racist.
Years ago, I wrote a blog post (canadiem.org/waves-of-foam/) and received some heat from the #FOAMed community. That feels like a lifetime ago, and in a time when fewer were relying on #FOAMed for critically timely clinical content.
Today, our paper is online first, detailing the waves (as we see it) of those who have founded the movement, the early adopters who flew w/ concept, and structuralists who have come along to add discussions of quality, critical appraisal, formalization. atsjournals.org/doi/full/10.34…

@LaraVarpio HI Lara:
I will attempt to explain via a thread.
Rule #1 - one must acknowledge there is NEVER enough time for anything. Prioritization is key. Having a system to triage things (as an emerg doc) is important. Having internal rules for who needs to do what is also important.
@LaraVarpio Rule #2 - Have a SYSTEM that allows you to juggle multiple things at once: AT A GLANCE helps you adhere to your triage. In the Emerg Dept, we have electronic tracker boards (look at this simulator virtualer.org/TC_start.html) that allow you to determine who's taking care of whom.

Such a treat to be at @feminemtweets#Revive19 listening to @PEAKMD talk about coaching. Definitely an amazing female physician leader who is experienced and wisdom in this area. Check out this thread if you are interested in finding out more.
Coaching is different from mentorship.
Executive coaching comes from a place that empowers the person being coached - they have the answer. This is different from teaching (giving you more knowledge), mentor (a guide that nudges), and a coach (who helps you actualize things).
