Sketchcasting on What Drives Us

By Michelle Lin, MD June 15, 2010 0 comments

Drawing

I recently came across a new means of online teaching and information delivery called sketchcasting. The premise isn’t new. It combines a podcast (someone speaking) with visuals (images). In sketchcasting, the images are instead someone drawing on a virtual whiteboard in real-time to convey information.

I recently found a sketchcast with stop-motion and speed-up effects, which really made the presentation dynamic and super-engaging. This sketchcast by Dan Pink (Author of “Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us”) was created by the Royal Society for the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).

Are you as amazed as I was with the sketchcasting approach to teaching (and the creator’s incredible drawing skills)? This sketchcast nicely summarizes what drives many of us to pursue academics. We are looking for:

  • Autonomy – We get to work on innovative projects with relative autonomy.
  • Mastery – We get the opportunity to get better at what we do and teach medical students/residents what we know.
  • Purpose – We get the chance to improve the health of patients and help mold the physicians of tomorrow.
