The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) has announced the 11th WFC Association of Chiropractic Colleges (ACC) Global Education Conference will take place on Nov. 2-5, 2022, at Logan University. The campus outside St. Louis will attract educators, researchers, academics and association leaders from around the world, showcasing the very best in chiropractic educational learning, innovation and research.
The submission deadline for abstracts is June 1, 2022.
Authors from all nations are invited to submit abstracts describing their chiropractic educational research and innovations. Submitted material should be pertinent to teaching, learning, assessment, evaluation, faculty development, governance, or any area of education.
Platform Presentations: Platform abstracts of 250 words or less should include: objective, methods, results, and conclusion. Experimental studies involving human subjects (eg, comparative trials, pilot studies, cohort studies, and surveys) must have IRB/ethics board approval or exemption as determined by the author’s institution.
Poster Presentations: Poster abstracts of 250 words or less should include: objective, methods, results, and conclusion. Experimental studies involving human subjects (eg. comparative trials, pilot studies, cohort studies, and surveys) must have IRB/ethics board approval or exemption as determined by the author’s institution.
Workshop Presentations: Workshop leaders will provide an interactive workshop to develop skills of attendees. Workshops should include active learning — not be solely lectures, not a series of presentations, nor be a substitute for the scientific platform sessions. The workshop proposal of 250 words or less should include a brief description, a list of skill-based learning objectives, and outline of the presentation that can be completed in 45 minutes. If the proposal is selected for consideration, a more detailed outline will be requested.
Innovations Presentations: Innovation presentations present a true educational innovation that is being implemented. A description of the specific innovation should be able to be shared in 6 minutes or less and will be part of a panel discussion. Innovation sessions are not lectures or a substitute for platform presentations. Innovations abstracts of 250 words or less should include: rationale or need for the innovation, short description of the innovation, and potential impact on chiropractic education.
