Abstract

BackgroundAlthough it is often criticised, the lecture remains a fundamental part of medical training because it is an economical and efficient method for teaching both factual and experimental knowledge. However, if administered incorrectly, it can be boring and useless.Feedback from peers is increasingly recognized as an effective method of encouraging self-reflection and continuing professional development. The aim of this observational study is to analyse the impact of written peer feedback on the performance of lecturers in an emergency medicine lecture series for undergraduate students.MethodsIn this prospective study, 13 lecturers in 15 lectures on emergency medicine for undergraduate medical students were videotaped and analysed by trained peer reviewers using a 21-item assessment instrument. The lecturers received their written feedback prior to the beginning of the next years¿ lecture series and were assessed in the same way.ResultsIn this study, we demonstrated a significant improvement in the lecturers¿ scores in the categories `content and organisation¿ and `visualisation¿ in response to written feedback. The highest and most significant improvements after written peer feedback were detected in the items `provides a brief outline¿, `provides a conclusion for the talk¿ and `clearly states goal of the talk¿.ConclusionThis study demonstrates the significant impact of a single standardized written peer feedback on a lecturer¿s performance.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 February 2015.
All research outputs
#958,916
of 4,704,502 outputs
Outputs from Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine
#116
of 385 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#37,683
of 157,748 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine
#3
of 15 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,704,502 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 79th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 385 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.8. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 69% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 157,748 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 15 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
