Defining Educational Methods

Although I’ve described CME activities as both “interactive” and “multi-faceted”, I’m not really sure what these things are.  I haven’t been able to find any clear definition of either (which is a big limitation of meta-analysis of CME outcomes).  For example, what is the minimum criteria to satisfy “interactive”?  Is it simply the addition of an audience response system?  Or what about “multi-facetedness” (that’s a mouthful)…would a live activity be considered “multi-faceted” once re-purposed into an enduring material?  I don’t know.  But I do have an idea about how we might start to clarify these terms, which a colleague and I address in the latest JCEHP.
