So, maybe you think a journal club is a great idea, but it’s hard to meet with your peers, or maybe your immediate coworkers aren’t interested, or maybe there just isn’t enough time in the day. A new PTNow Blog Post makes the case that where there’s a will, there’s usually a (technologically assisted) way.
PTNow continues its discussion of journal clubs with a post that shares some creative ways to meet the logistical meeting challenges through online and hybrid learning platforms. The blog post covers options for real-time get-togethers that range from the good ol’ fashioned conference call to video and file sharing programs such as Google+ Hangouts, and touches on ways to set up a club when it’s impossible or inconvenient for members to meet at the same time. All options are easy to set up, and most are free.
