About the event

In addition to the main programming of the event, all attendees are encouraged to submit a short video presentation that is related to one of the three conference topics:

  • Topic 1: After the Seats are Filled: Building a Culture Equity and Inclusivity for a Diverse Community of Faculty and Learners
  • Topic 2: The Impact of Admissions Decisions and Curricular Content on the Profession’s Ability to Meet Urgent Societal Needs
  • Topic 3: Fully Embracing Lifelong Learning:  Building Cultures of Change

The presentations may be related to your research (published or ongoing) around one of these topics, or they may represent your thoughts on a topic before the conference dialogue begins. Consider these an opportunity for you to “have the floor” to share your data, your evidence, your thoughts, or your perspective. All registered participants will have an opportunity to view the recordings before the conference begins. The recordings will not be shared beyond the Forum attendees without your consent. We believe this will foster deeper conversation and expose participants to a broad cross-section of valued opinions, informing a more robust live discussion. We invite you to take a look at a couple of examples if you would like provided by Dr. Timothy Miller and Dr. Elsa Drevyn.

The details:

  • These presentations will not be peer-reviewed; however, as an invited conference participant, you may list these as an invited conference presentation. All submissions from invited conference participants will be accepted provided they meet the additional requirements below.
  • The presentations must be no more than 6 minutes in length and no more than 10GB in size. Submissions longer than 6 minutes or or larger than 10GB will not be accepted.

  • Only ONE platform presentation will be accepted per attendee, so select your topic carefully. If participants submit more than one, the conference planning committee will select just one to make available.
