Recap of January meetup

Thanks for a great discussion at last week’s meetup!  Thanks to Susan Hallmark for her excellent note-taking, and to Alvin Mills for co-presenting with me on minimizing risks in social media.

Here are Susan’s notes:

And here is my part of the presentation, which covered minimizing social media risk to the enterprise.

Here are links to the three whitepapers I referenced in the presentation:

Social Media Grand Rounds x2

Last Friday afternoon, Dr Jeanette Ross, geriatrics and palliative medicine specialist, presented at the South Texas Regional Family Medicine Grand Rounds here at the UT Health Science Center, on the topic “Professional Uses of Social Media in Healthcare”.  Dr Ross did a fantastic job, and even if you didn’t get the chance to be there, the live webcast of her presentation was archived online for on-demand viewing.  In addition, her slides can be found below (in two sections):

Today I discovered another excellent Grand Rounds presentation, this time by gastroenterologist Dr Ryan Madanick of the UNC School of Medicine, focused on social media in medical education.  Dr Madanick streamed his Grand Rounds live at noon today (EDT, 11am CDT) and will do so again at 4:30pm this afternoon (EDT, 3:30pm CDT).  His webcast from the first presentation can be found here on his Ustream channel.  In addition, Dr Madanick has also shared his slides on SlideShare:

Both of these presentations are well-presented introductions with a great mixture of background information, specific case studies, and high-quality references.  I highly recommend both.

ActionCamp 2011: Professional Development built by you!

I’d encourage all my colleagues interested in emerging technologies and community outreach to consider an exciting new kind of professional development opportunity coming up at the end of this month.  ActionCamp San Antonio is a chance for innovators from the local education and nonprofit communities to come together, share and learn from each other about strategies, technology tools and experiences.  ActionCamp uses the participatory “unconference” style to create an open environment for networking, discussion, live demos and lots of interaction. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcomed and invited to join.

ActionCamp San Antonio 2011 will be held Friday, October 28 from 9am – 4pm at the Courtyard San Antonio SeaWorld Westover Hills.  Registration is only $25 for educators and nonprofits, and includes breakfast and lunch.  For more details and registration, please go to http://conta.cc/actionsa2011

“Getting schooled on social media”

PrISM is mentioned (although not by name) in a story by higher ed reporter Melissa Ludwig that appeared in today’s San Antonio Express-News.  For “Getting schooled on social media,” Ludwig interviewed colleagues at UTSA and Trinity as well as yours truly.  I think the end result was balanced and very worthwhile.  What do you think?

Some recent articles on teaching with Twitter

At the last PrISM meetup, Dr Adelita Cantu mentioned her idea for using Twitter as a discussion and resource-sharing channel for her fall Nursing 4514 class.  I mentioned at the time that I had seen a recent article in the journal Nurse Educator on using Twitter; the citation for that article is:

Trueman MS, Miles DG. Twitter in the classroom: twenty-first century flash cards. Nurse Educ. 2011 Sep-Oct;36(5): 183-6. DOI: 10.1097/NNE.0b013e3182297a07

UT Health Science Center faculty, staff & students can access that article at http://link.uthscsa.edu/21857333.

Since that last meetup, I’ve noticed a couple more very good articles on Twitter in the classroom that might be of interest to PrISM folks.

First, the ProfHacker blog at the Chronicle of Higher Education featured a couple of excellent posts by Mark Sample of George Mason University: “A Framework for Teaching with Twitter” from August 16, and then a follow-up post, “Practical Advice for Teaching with Twitter” on August 25.

Then, today (via Twitter) I discovered an article that’s actually been out on the Medicine and Technology blog for a couple of months.  The post looks at Twitter benefits from a medical student’s point of view: “#TwitterStudying: A Med Student’s Experiences with Twitter as a Study Tool and Support Network” by Brittany Chan, an MBA and MS3 at TTUHSC.
