Hi everyone

If you haven't heard, Google is going to be shutting down the consumer version of Google Plus (i.e. the one that we use) sometime next year (https://www.blog.google/technology/safety-security/project-strobe/). This means that we're going to have to move our community off the platform over the next few months.

We've started some preliminary planning to use the http://inbeta.uwc.ac.za website for our community news and announcements, with the obvious benefit that we control it and so are unlikely to have to do this again in the future. Over time we'd like to add new features that would be useful for the community but for now, we'd like to ask that you do the following:

1. Go to http://inbeta.uwc.ac.za
2. Add your email address to the Subscribe to the podcast field
3. Click Subscribe
4. When you get an email, click on the Confirm follow link.

You will now receive notifications for new episodes in your email. We apologise for the inconvenience but hopefully, we'll not have to ask you to move again.

Our next In Beta conversation is this Thursday 23rd August at 14:00 BST.

I will be joined by Steve Tolan from the CSP and Jack Chew from the Physio Matters Podcast and #TheBigRs to discuss the role of conferences in CPD and research translation.

I've been a bit behind in publicising this, so apologies for the late notice, but I hope that some people are able to join us to share their views on the good, the bad and the ugly of conferences.

The pre-discussion document is now available to read, please feel free to add any questions that you would like to be discussed. The link to join is also on the document and I will post it again on here a little before we start.

Cheers

Ben

Hi All,

A quick reminder that tomorrow at 14:00 BST we will be having an open discussion on academic assessment in physiotherapy education.

The preparation document is now available (apologies for the delay). It sets out a bit of the context for why I think this should be an interesting topic of conversation. I'm really looking froward to being challenged on some of my thoughts regarding assessment, and critically reflecting on my practice. I hope that some of you are able to join us. the Hangout link is on the attached Google Doc, I will also post it separately on here before we start tomorrow.

Cheers

Ben

To celebrate the end of marking season (in the UK at least) On Thursday 12th July at 14:00 BST Michael and I will be discussing academic assessment on physiotherapy programmes. We would like to invite you to join us online to talk about your experiences and views of assessment too.

It's hopefully going to be a free-ranging discussion about what the point of assessment is, what types of assessment should be used across physio programmes, how we mark and more importantly provide feedback on assessments and how we should be looking to change and develop assessment practices to ensure they remain relevant for a modern physio curriculum. It would be particularly great to hear from anyone approaching assessment differently on their courses.

I'll post a link to the preparation document and the Google Hangout link to join here nearer the time.

Cheers

Ben
