Enhancing departmental teaching in the digital age: as easy as 1-3-5


We have recently introduced a new item to our neurology Grand Rounds—the ‘1-3-5 presentation’. The format comprises a presentation on one topic, using three slides and lasting no more than 5 minutes. This a useful way of covering brief single topics and introducing and sparking discussion on more complex ones. ‘1-3-5s’ have proven popular in our department and we have compiled a library of these presentations that is hosted on a YouTube channel. This article discusses the benefits and prospects for this format and encourages other units to provide similar opportunities for teaching and learning among all clinical grades.
