Dear colleague, welcome to the ESGE January 2019 eNewsletter.

Sign up now for ESGE Days 2019

Greetings!

On behalf of ESGE, I wish you all a Happy New Year. Looking back, 2018 was a very special year for ESGE, we successfully launched our very first congress, ESGE Days 2018. All those who came together in Budapest experienced an extensive programme dedicated to endoscopy. The enthusiastic reception of ESGE Days 2018 reinforced ESGE’s decision to hold this congress every year. Now, we are heading to our second congress, ESGE Days 2019, in the historic and beautiful city of Prague. Again, we will cater to the needs of the entire endoscopy team. An even more comprehensive programme will bring together LIVE endoscopy demonstration, state of the art lectures, hands-on endoscopy training, topic-focused symposia and new features. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who is supporting ESGE Days and who are contributing to its success.

ESGE as a society has been growing steadily and counts 50 actively cooperating member societies and over 2500 individual members! Alongside the work of our traditional committees (guidelines, research, education and quality improvement), in 2018, several other more recently initiated activities were kept busy developing projects.

The curricula, patients and eLearning working groups are very active. Also, the membership, international and webinar working groups played important roles in 2018. The ESGE Young Endoscopist (EYE) working group has drafted a programme for the EYE Zone at ESGE Days 2019. They are also actively involved in several other working groups and ESGE committees, giving insight into the needs and interests of the upcoming young generation of endoscopists.

Looking ahead, we have a lot of work to do, in continuing our quest to improve quality in endoscopy with the support of our members and your involvement. We anticipate an exciting year ahead and very much hope to greet you all in Prague!

This month we spoke to Professor Marianna Arvanitakis, the chairperson of the ESGE eLearning working group.

What are the main goals of the working group?
We aim to promote education in the field of endoscopy in an innovative manner, as well as increasing interaction and accessibility to information.

Why did you want to get involved with this working group?
I have always enjoyed teaching and I find the experience very enriching. The working group allows me to explore new ways of transmitting knowledge, which I find very gratifying and exciting.

How do the working group activities fit into the overarching goals of ESGE?
Education is one of the key activities of our society; therefore, the eLearning working group is an important pillar of ESGE´s activities.

What have been the main achievements of the working group to date?
We began the eLearning platform by including educational video modules, lectures from ESGE meetings, ESGE guidelines and live demos from ESGE endorsed events. As ESGE activities multiply, so does the educational materials and we can therefore add more value to our eLearning platform.

What are the next big challenges for the working group?
Our next goal is to incorporate ESGE guidelines to a new eLearning platform that will enhance the learning process, by adding self-assessment and interaction.
