Designing courses is passé! In a world where the shelf-life of knowledge and skills are rapidly shrinking, where best practices of yore yield increasingly little or no return on investment, where exceptions are the norm, and ...

There has been a plethora of antimicrobial stewardship scholarship published these past few weeks. I'm currently on the inpatient medicine service and have even been harassed by the antimicrobial stewardship team (humor), so ...

2015 Event One: Learning Subjectives  - 
 
Hi - I've been dipping into the #rhizo15 conversation on Twitter but remembered there was a G+ group so checking in to say hello and share my first post on learning subjectives.
I've not got a good track record with MOOCs, I sign up for them, start a few, lurk a bit but invariably don't finish them as I never  seem to have enough time to commit to them.  Last year I manage...

New media and young people's lives  - 
 
One of a number of books I'm dipping in and out of at the moment is danah boyd's 'It's complicated - the social lives of networked teens' which offers an interesting insight into how teens use social media.  I bought the book before I realised that she'd made the book available open access - you can download as a free PDF via this link on the Open Culture website.
danah boyd (she doesn't capitalize her name) is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research and a Fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center, where she looks at how young people use social media as part of their everyday lives. She has a new book out called It's Complicated:

Student approach to new technology and to to learning  - 
 
A bit of shameless self-publicity for my blog and a post I've just written about the flipped classroom.  There's a paper in the latest edition of Medical Education which highlighted that students at Virginia Medical School aren't engaging with flipped learning and their lack of attention and poor attendance isn't any better than in traditional lectures.  Liz Mossop's commentary in the same edition highlights the curse of the teenage learner and their lack of learning skills.  Interestingly the students seemed to prefer TBL.

May I ask some questions regarding AST?
1- Colistin MIC is it  diagnostic  only
(its breakpoints shouldn't be reported) or therapeutic? some claim it is only diagnostic except for TREK?
2- ESBL is now recommended by CLSI only for epidemioloical purposes, am I right?
3- No AST needed for Penicillin with SGB, is this right?
4- Ineducable clindamycin resistance isn't a proof that ABx can induce resistance of bacteria?
Thank you so much

Probably just confirms what we've always known.

Wouldn't it be great if Universities grasped this in relation to their use of learning platforms.  We need to make the move from monlithic LMSs/VLEs to learning ecosystems.

"The platforms of the past were monolithic in design, focused as they were on driving unit cost reduction by helping standardise processes: they didn’t have to worry about the cost of change. Today’s platforms have to be based on ecosystem models, small pieces loosely joined, ensuring that change can be compartmentalised and controlled at affordable time and cost levels. They start having semi-permeable membranes around them: APIs to extract information from the feed, “publishers” to drop information into the feed."

Would be interested to hear whether others have experienced students checking out of the flipped classroom.

Looking at the demographics of MOOC participants are they just really massive online evening classes?
I see that FutureLearn have published some preliminary data on participation on the first eight of their MOOCs.  They've attracted a fair bit of interest with high enrollment rates. I was struck by...

I would suggest they are an alternative for now.
