Interesting post from AAMC's Group on Information Resources

Ran across this today:

Web 2.0 and Medical Education: It's Here. Are You Ready?

Interesting perspective of the application of 2.0 tools to medical education, from the viewpoint of a medical educator. There's some good references at the end of the article, and i found this particular statement rather provocative: "A minority of students is hesitant. They question the value of information provided by their peers and are only concerned with the content from their professors' since it reflects what will be on their summative tests."

What are your schools doing in this respect? Here at LSUHSC-NO I don't see too much incorporation of blogs and wikis just yet. But I do see alot of Facebook pages open during medical lectures.

Enabling comments?

Is there some way to enable comments on this blog? I think it's the best way to carry on discussion using this tool.
I like the picture that the Northeastern chapter uses as well:

LiME logo

We have been asked if we want to use the attached logo for our new LiME.
Shall we adopt it for our SGEA LiME?

Where do we fit at MLA?

Are we going to try to have our own SIG at MLA or fit in with:
Libraries in Curriculum SIG whose mission focuses on library instruction in support of health sciences curriculum. Instruction is defined broadly to include medical, dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, physiology and other health profession schools. It includes problem-based learning, orientations, classes and courses taught by librarians, whether integrated into the curriculum or not. LiC
1. Provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences related to library instruction
2. Facilitates communication and collaboration between instruction librarians


The Public Services Section whose mission is:
To foster communication, education, and professional growth and development among individuals who provide reference information, literature searches, interlibrary loan, circulation, and instructional services in health sciences libraries.

These are things to think about!
