6th International Conference on Faculty Development in the Health Professions

“Faculty Development in Times of Extraordinary Change”

faculty-development-in-times-of-extraordinary-change

Conference Goals

  • To share and discuss how faculty developers promote and demonstrate adaptive expertise in the context of change
  • To address how faculty developers utilize change science/change management approaches in their work at individual and institutional levels
  • To provide a forum for shared learning across the global faculty development community


The 2 plenaries will focus on Goals #2 and #3. Each speaker will bring their own 'lens' to faculty development and change.
The plenary format will include opportunities for participants to ask questions and to engage in discussion about how this relates to their own work in faculty development.
 
The symposia will focus on Goals #1 and #3.  Moderators will introduce the concept of adaptive expertise and it's application to the practice of faculty development.  Symposia presenters will share examples of their work that represent adaptive expertise in the context of change.  There will be opportunities for participants to ask questions and to engage in discussion about how this relates to their own work in faculty development.
 

In support of the Goal #3  (really the most important one), the conference will run for 15 hours so that as many people from different time zones will be able to participate in synchronous sessions, as well as access the recorded content.

This means the conference will begin just after midnight GMT on Saturday August 28th (this will be the evening of Friday the 27th for those in the western-most countries) and run until the opening activities of the AMEE conference around 1600 hrs GMT. There will be 2 different plenaries, 2 different symposia and 2 timeslots for workshops and oral presentations. We anticipate 4 simultaneous tracks for workshops and OP sessions.


About the Conference

AMEE 2021 is now being planned as a virtual conference which will include synchronous and asynchronous learning (more details to follow).  We’ll also be linking to future activities including the AMEE FD Webinars and a new FD Journal club to build on learning from the conference.

Presentation Formats

6th International Conference on Faculty Development in the Health Professions
 
The 6th ICFDHP is a virtual conference where all sessions scheduled in the programme will be presented entirely live through the Swapcard platform. We are currently scheduling the sessions and where possible will try to ensure that these are at times that suit presenters.

All presenters are asked to confirm to [email protected] by 31 May that they accept the presentation as offered. Presenters should also register for AMEE 2021 and pay the registration fee by 30 June.
