I can’t believe that my time here in Poland is halfway over. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of giving the lecture at the TechMedComm inaugural meeting. It was the first chance I had to present the findings of our analysis of the final OSCEs for the communication skills for health professionals course, and the talk inspired a variety of questions and great discussion. I was also able to accompany the group to the medical school’s simulation lab and tour the facility and observe how they run their OSCEs.
Last week I gave my lecture as part of the Distinguished Professor series and shared the current work we are doing around reflexivity and digital workflows. David was still here for his visit, so it was nice to have him in the audience as well.
The introduction and some of the articles in our special issue on digital workflows Qualitative Inquiry are now available online first. It was such a pleasure to co-edit this issue with Dr. Jessica Lester, who was here visiting in Poland last month, and to work with all of these authors.
Sage has put together a glimpse of the digital workflows segment that I filmed last year for their methods collection. I have not had the courage to watch it myself yet…but hopefully it is relatively coherent.
May and June will also be busy. I will be presenting one of the plenaries and a workshop at the Young Linguists’ Meeting in Poznan. Dr. Lester and I will also be presenting a workshop at the Ohio State University’s QUALLAB’s Advanced Methods Institute in June.
And, of course, I have been enjoying taking Polish classes, eating a lot of amazing food, hosting visitors, and traveling a bit around the country. (For more on those adventures, visit my personal blog.)
