About the Event
PubMed® for Trainers is held in 4 sessions, 3 online sessions and 1 in person session. The class is eligible for 15 hours of MLA CE credit. This hands-on course consists of lectures, individual exercises, group work and discussions in four sessions, with with approximately 2-3 hours of independent work to be done outside of class time. NLM or NTC trainers will deliver the lectures and facilitate discussions.
Objectives: For current and future PubMed trainers to discover and develop:
- functional knowledge of the MEDLINE® database,
- understanding of the structure and use of the Medical Subject Heading (MeSH®) vocabulary in MEDLINE/PubMed,
- expertise in the use of features and functions of the PubMed system, and
- techniques and best practices in MEDLINE/PubMed instruction with fellow trainers.
The class is intended specifically for those who train, or will train, others to use PubMed. This class could be for you if you teach PubMed to large groups, small groups, or one-on-one training. We look forward to lively discussions on PubMed instruction and adult education best practices.
