The CORAL Collection
The CORAL Collection is a set of materials designed for education committee members and course and program directors. The Cells will help people learn some of the most important concepts and principles in medical education.
Each Cell is short, discrete, and designed to teach. Each Cell has an introduction, one to three objectives, self-assessments, a section to present the material, a quiz with expert responses, an evaluation so we can get better, references and further reading, and a concept map showing related Cells.
Medical Education WIKI
The Medical Education WIKI was developed to be used by medical educators and residents as a resource for techniques and as an archive for articles. It is divided into four main topics:
- Clinical Teaching Techniques
- Classroom Teaching Techniques
- How Medical Students Learn
- Teaching Technologies
