Converting Your Teaching and Assessment Materials into Educational Scholarship Through MedEdPORTAL -December 9

In this webinar, participants will be introduced to MedEdPORTAL, the journal of teaching and learning resources for the AAMC. MedEdPORTAL is a MEDLINE-indexed, open access, online-only journal that is an avenue for educators to publish their teaching activities as well as a source of ready-to-implement materials. Submitting to MedEdPORTAL involves a manuscript and all materials needed to run your teaching activity. 

By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to: 

  1. describe how educational resources can be published in MedEdPORTAL, 
  2. list the characteristics of successful submissions, and 
  3. explain how to use MedEdPORTAL as a repository for peer-reviewed materials in the health professions. 

This webinar is the first part in a four-part series related to fostering scholarship in medical education offered by the AAMC.
