ESMIT Faculty Training
One of the spearheads of ESMIT is to promote interactivity in our teachings as the EANM Board and the ESMIT leadership are both convinced that in these modern times people learn more from ‘the guide on the side’, rather than from ‘the sage on the stage’.
This philosophy also means that the ESMIT asks from all moderators to include in their presentations a number of multiple choice questions that are answered by the audience via an interactive voting system that can be easily used with help of smartphones. In addition each ESMIT event covers case reading sessions as well as hands on sessions with help of the HERMES case reading software.
Everyone acting as moderator for the ESMIT has completed the ESMIT Faculty Training, which focuses on developing the skills needed for interactive teachings. This training takes 2 days and is held several times per year in the ESMIT Learning Center in Vienna, Austria. The course will be given by Roy Sheppard, former anchorman of the BBC and moderator of the social events at the EANM Annual Congress.
