MedEdPORTAL welcomes submissions to the ADEA weTeach collection in Publications.
Publications is an online repository of peer reviewed, classroom tested teaching resources that adhere to the full standards of professional scholarship. Submissions are first vetted for copyright and patient privacy compliance and then subjected to the
scrutiny of two independent reviewers using a standardized peer review process that is grounded in the tenants of scholarship. MedEdPORTAL publications are on par with traditional scholarly works, may support faculty tenure and advancement decisions and follow the
MedEdPORTAL Submission Standards. Published authors receive a formal citation for their accepted publication. Teaching materials that enhance the curriculum may take many forms including tutorials, case studies, simulations, or other tools which have a clear set of learning objectives and detailed instructions
Key characteristics of a teaching module published in MedEdPORTAL include:
- Functions as a full, stand-alone teaching/learning activity.
- Includes obtainable educational objectives and outcome-based measures.
- Replicable and relevant for other faculty.
