Here at the ICENet blog we have previously curated a list of “must reads” for CEs If your reading list is shrinking and you need some new material (in anticipation of summer vacation), today’s post recommends 9 new titles to add to your list.
The Royal College Clinician Educators held their annual retreat last week. As part of our regular faculty development, we held the third annual CEs Read contest. Quoting from the official rule book:
“CEs Read” celebrates literature that is relevant to, and contributes to, a greater understanding of the role of a Clinician Educator. The award acknowledges the vast breadth and depth of health profession education and hence respects that the nominations will represent choices that are diverse in nature. The winning selection is deemed to be essential reading for all Clinician Educators.
Deepak Dath, MD, MEd, FRCSC, FACS – Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work by Chip Heath and Dan Heath
Denyse Richardson, MD, MEd, FRCPC – How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching by Susan A. Ambrose, Michael W. Bridges, Michele DiPietro, Marsha C. Lovett and Marie K. Norman
Linda Snell, MD, MHPE, FRCPC, FACP – The Ten Faces of Innovation: IDEO’s Strategies for Defeating the Devil’s Advocate and Driving Creativity Throughout Your Organization by Tom Kelly and Jonathan Littman
And the winner is… (with much jealousy on my part)
Elaine Van Melle, PhD – Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die by Chip Heath and Dan Heath
