BICC Background

Liverpool BICC comprises members of the undergraduate and postgraduate schools of medicine, and has close links with Liverpool’s management school and education development unit. Our particular strengths lie in our breadth of experience and our close relationship with our subject specialist librarian.

Main areas of interest/expertise

Our main areas of interest are in the use of information technology, application of adult learning theories, directed self-learning and in using Best Evidence in Medical Education as a way of developing curricula and training staff and students in the most effective ways to learn and teach.


Contributions made to BEME

We are currently engaged in systematic reviews into the use of handheld computers in clinical education and into the use of social media in medical education.  We are also formally studying the various measures of utility of educational interventions.

Members of our BICC serve on the BEME Research Committee (chair), the translation into practice committee, the funding committee and, of course, the Board. We have also formerly been active members of the editorial committee.
