Paediatric Radiology Web Teaching Initiative
We would like to bring together specialist trainees in paediatric radiology with monthly web-based teaching sessions. If you are currently a year 4 or year 5 Specialty Registrar in Paediatric Radiology we hope you might join us and try to make this initiative successful.
The sessions will use British Telecom’s Webex / Meetme system
What is Webex?
- A web Conference facility that transmits data via the internet and sound by telephone (to prevent voice lag)
- Multiple users can join in teaching and discussion.
- The system is used many NHS Trusts and is accessible from work and home
- No need to download and install programs.
- You need a computer with Internet access (preferably broadband), Video Cam and telephone (ideally with speakerphone).
- There are no plans to charge users for this (there are limited costs but we plan to cover them for now)
- Please download the PowerPoint presentation for further details.
What do I do next?
- Reply to Ram or Iwan and they will arrange a time to show you the system.
- When will the teaching happen? We will try and pick the best tutorial time, based on when most people are available. The plan is for during the working day and you might want to think about using your department’s conference room as a venue. We hope to run a few trial sessions to get people used to the system and layout.
- Start monthly teaching sessions with an emphasis on people presenting their own cases and sharing their experience. ”Taught” content can be guided by what people want to cover.
- Keep an eye out for our update section on this page.
