Journal Discussion March 2021

Guilty admit!!! This has definitely happened to me many times while reading a journal article. With attending so many journal clubs in past few years, I have come to agree, this is a beautiful safe space where we all gather to discuss our views in detail on a particular educational related article.

This space of journal reading not only helps us to network with others in our field of interest but it also helps us build many crucial interpersonal skills and one of the most important ones which is to non- judgmentally accept the different perspectives of each member.

With that said, its crazy how we are almost already welcoming March month this year and below is the registration and topic details for March 2021:
