Community Minded: Supporting the Mission
Studies have indicated that how we deliver nephrology education may improve interest in nephrology as a future career for trainees. Kidney educators are reviewing and evaluating new and unique methods for teaching and sharing of information. Do different tools lend themselves to different specialties or disease conditions like Acid Base and Electrolyte issues? What is the role of social media in training? Do Concept Maps work? Are small group learning sessions effective? Should educators consider the development of a nephrology toolbox that would contain unique tips and techniques? Are Flipped Classrooms the answer? Read the thread to learn more about these and other ideas. What innovative ideas have you implemented, or would you recommend?
