Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media. I call these Friday’s Finds.
“I do admin exactly like I clean vomit: Hold breath, enter without looking, do something, retreat, retch, wipe eyes, breathe, repeat.” —@ChristoMove
“Most doctors are rather good with healthcare of individuals, but not that good with mathematics & large scale human behaviour analysis.” —@autiomaa
“You catch highly contagious new-variant Covid-19 when you INHALE air that an infected person has EXHALED. This is more likely with CLOSE CONTACT, CROWDED PLACES, and CLOSED SPACES (3Cs).” —@TrishGreenhagh
“Hybrid work is not something that can be done simply by spending some days at home and some days at work. There must be a value proposition for going back to the office …
The entire value system that hiring has been based on is at risk due to remote work.”
“It is clear from these studies that students in the medical and allied health professions expect that memorization will play a substantial role in their training, and that they are receptive to learning techniques that can improve recall performance on memory tasks. In addition, the students sampled in this work viewed training on the Australian Aboriginal method, in particular, as meaningful, interesting, and fun. The attractiveness of this approach, combined with the clear quantitative improvement in recall after a single, short training session, suggests that memory techniques based on Indigenous knowledge can be beneficially incorporated into health professions education.”
