Thematic Case Reviews

In these thematic reviews, the organisation and presentation of cases will be based on the latest educational research, including literature exploring the role of expertise in radiologic image interpretation; how to promote active learning in radiology trainees, and activities to simulate how experts through deliberate practice generate a holistic high-level representation of the image, which then fine-tunes the perception of potential lesions. These reviews will leverage on the large database of online published and unpublished (at the moment) "normal" and "abnormal" cases. Selected use of didactic instructional videos will be included.

1. a platform for self-publishing
2. templated design and publishing
3. intuitive interactivity
4. engaging content
5. purpose driven

6. educational principles to keep in mind when planning an educational activity - learning objectives, curriculum, assessment, evaluation, and encouraging self-directed, active learning, which is contextual, and collaborative

7. one of the best ways of deciding whether you have learnt something is to demonstrate mastery of key ideas - i.e. can you describe the key features, can you use and build on the material, can you teach someone else
