Having enrolled in the recent video course Abortion: Quality Care and Public Health Implications I came away from the experience impressed and more educated. After more than 19 years of providing abortion care, even I found the presentations educational and immensely informative. Professional and well organized, it was easy to watch and digest in small convenient videos from 8-25 min in length and provided information easy to integrate into my everyday practice and teaching.
I thought that these videos may even be a good learning experience for our residents. Using a 30 GB memory stick, I have the entire course of videos available to me which I am able to employ during our didactic time. It has proven especially helpful in those times when the speaker is absent or cancels. I can simply step up and turn on a short video to make the time useful again for the benefit of those attending the presentations. I have also integrated them into presentations to help the discussion or bring a more global awareness to the audience.
This is valuable content and I encourage faculty and educators to incorporate lectures and videos in their own teaching.
