A collection of my favourite tweets from the Association of the study of Medical Education Annual Conference 2012 (I wasn’t there!)
There is a spectrum from technology-enhanced learning to technology-impairing learning
Virtual patients: the teaching should drive the technology design rather than the technology driving the instructional design
The distinction between content, outcome and process is important in assessing or evaluating performance in medical education
“Students want more formative assessment” – how do anecdotes about what this means differ from literature about what this means?
@rakeshspatel @ atthepage the missing discourse at #asme2012 – theoretical framings of medical education?
andrewspong: Ten reasons why doctors should use Twitterhttp://bit.ly/NIGIuR | STweM #hcsmeu #hcsmin #asme2012 #hcp #meded @ amcunningham
@RonanTKavanagh @ nlafferty I have read more journal articles via twitter links than i’ve ever read before. #asme2012 @ rakeshspatel

#ASME2012 preliminary findings on virtual patient design indicate students prefer the simpler linear cases to more complex branching ones
#asme2012 when researchers gave professional med student dilemma scenarios to faculty… There was disagreement +++ #professionalism
I think the distinction between ‘expert’ and student is a bit over simplistic… What is an expert, and in which realms?
@welsh_gas_doc @ dr_fiona there are a few talks at #asme2012about use of WBAs and reflection. Am I naive to think improvements can be made?
