MedEdPORTAL, a program of the Association of American Medical Colleges, has announced the schedule of the free online training workshops for July and August.
Since I had already a positive experience participating in a recent MedEdPORTAL web workshop, I would like to share this information with you:
“The web conference is free to US and Canadian participants (international participants will be provided with a toll-free number and a toll number and may use either number to connect to the audio portion of the workshop).
The training will consist of an overview of the MedEdPORTAL system and provide examples of the various types of materials published and available for free to educators and students around the globe.
Participants will learn about the submission and peer review processes as well as the criteria used to evaluate the scholarship of published resources.
The seminar will also address issues associated with intellectual property and explain how MedEdPORTAL staff helps potential authors address those issues. Participant interactivity is encouraged by providing the ability to ask questions using a chat mechanism and embedded live polling throughout the entirety of the presentation. Questions will be answered live at the conclusion in the order of which they were received.
The 2008 MedEdPORTAL online training workshops are scheduled to take place on:
· July 11, 2008 at 3:00 PM North American Eastern Daylight Time (EDT): Registration Open
· July 14, 2008 at 4:00 PM North American Eastern Daylight Time (EDT): Registration Open
