#meded professionals weigh in on social media management

Assignment: How do you find time for social media?

One of the most common concerns expressed by medical educators regarding social media is time. People have asked me and my colleagues presenting the 'Incorporating social media into medical education' workshop series: how do you find time to do this?

  1. Just found your blog - thanks for citing my article. Always great to meet fellow health professionals using social media for education :)

  2. At the very least, sites such as Twitter and Facebook can be used to create discussions in classrooms. Teachers can pull news stories from any of those sources. Students can ask questions and facilitate deeper discussion after reading something on one of the thousands of social media sites.
