Last September, I launched the first university course that focuses on web 2.0 and medicine for medical students. Almost 50 students attended the 20 slideshows through 10 weeks and they filled a survey out before and after the course. This week I presented the results to a few professors at the university.
So next week, I re-launch the course, but this time in English. I plan to publish some of the teaching material as well.
You have no idea how fed up I am with geographical limits, so if there are enough participants, I’m open to launch the course in Second Life as well. I hope each medical student who is interested in topics such as the medical blogosphere, medical meetings in Second Life, medical Twitterers or search, can attend the course either in real life or virtually.
I also plan to compare the attitude towards web 2.0 of Hungarian students and English speaking students and will publish the results in a peer-reviewed journal.
An excerpt from the official announcement:
The course will take place on each Thursday at 17:00-18:30 from 26 of February through 10 weeks in the auditorium of the Department of Pediatrics. 1 credit point.
Those students who would like to attend the course, please, contact the Department of Behavioural Sciences, http://mti.dote.hu/ENG/start.htm
See you there!
