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:

The Future of #MedEd*

*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.
My intellectual & financial conflicts of interest pertaining to this talk are:
@PSIFoundation who gave me $ to study #SoMe for Education and Knowledge Translation.

@ALiEMteam honorarium to teach/administer for @ALiEMfac

@McMasterU for their patronge of @MacPFD

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. Image
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. ImageImage
Shout out to @sherbino who opened my eyes to @Twitter as a community of practice for myself as a clinician AND an educator. The #FOAMed, #MedTwitter, and #MedEd tweeps have been instrumental in helping me develop as a practitioner, scholar, and now faculty developer. ImageImageImageImage

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.
First speaker: Dr. @ajesusjoseph from the @McMasterU Faculty of Social Work. He takes us through some key concepts such as Race, Racism, and Racialization. Key concepts we should understand as healthcare practitioners.

Next up is me! #FacDev #AMEE2020 ImageImage
Try to design your #FacDev with the end-user in mind. Be empathetic to their needs, build with them in mind. #AMEE2020

Let's design with deeper empathy. An example of this is the Yilmaz (@YusufYilmazPhD) model of #JustInTime #FacDev

Seminars in Nephrology has an entire issue devoted to social media in the discipline of nephrology.

The mastermind @kidney_boy highlights the contents here:
First up is @aoglasser @RJmdphilly @michellebr00ks (all #WomenInMedicine) who highlight opportunities for community, advocacy, and connection.

They review the "anatomy" and "physiology" of tweets too. :D

Link: sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
Next up is @stones__ and @hswapnil who discuss Twitter journal clubs (#JClub). "Clubbing" on Twitter can certainly be a lot more exciting, and definitely an alternative until we can all stop #PhysicalDistancing

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.

It feels like a lifetime ago, but this is one of those capstone papers that synthesize a big body of scholarly work that has erupted around #FOAMed...

@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.
@LaraVarpio For this, I use a series of Dropbox Folders, which are numbered. I have a folder for each project, and a series of project stages that are container folder. Each project moves through the stages with assoc materials.

Used to use an excel spreadsheet to track, but this is easier.

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).
Teaching is more about pushing (being directive).

Mentoring is more about feedback, offering guidance.

Coaching provokes reflection, understanding, paraphrasing, summarizing. Pulls you towards the answers inside of you.

It's a spectrum.
