The first event of 2017 will focus on the opportunities and challenges of using social media in clinical education.

The first event of 2017 will focus on the opportunities and challenges of using social media in clinical education. The event will include a presentation by Alison Hartley (Curriculum Development Associate, University of Bradford) on research she carried out for her Masters in Education (Clinical Education) which looked at how pharmacy undergraduates used a Facebook ™ group for peer learning support. Following the presentation, there will be a facilitated group discussion exploring the risks, opportunities and challenges of social media within the clinical education learning environment.

There is no charge for the event and it is open to anyone with an interest in learning and teaching in the clinical context.

This event is organised by the LIME Clinical Education Network (ClinEdNet). ClinEdNet stands for Clinical Education Network and is based in the Yorkshire and Humber region in the north of England. The network was set up by staff in Leeds Institute of Medical Education at the University of Leeds with a steering group made up of clinicians, undergraduate and postgraduate students from across the region. It is open to anyone with a research and scholarship interest in the education of health professionals.

The Network acts as an information exchange and is intended to foster collaboration in developing practice, scholarship and research into clinical education across the range of health professions.

The Network organises 3 evening events each year and past events have focused on Career Pathways in Medical Education and a Clinical Education Expo.
