Have you been getting the same vibe from your students? Dr. Krempl and others offered these tips for getting started with web-based lectures.
Gather Interested Faculty: Kenny Chan, MD oversees a web-based CME program produced by the American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology (ASPO) and the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. He became interested in educational webinars in 2010, when he worked with ASPO to create a webinar series “to enrich the educational content of pediatric otolaryngology fellowship programs across North America.”
His best piece of advice? Start talking to colleagues. “If there’s a dedicated group of people interested in education, particularly in web-based learning, you can pull this off, but if you don’t have a group of dedicated people to do this, it’ll be very difficult,” said Dr. Chan, chief of the department of pediatric otolaryngology at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Denver.
