Our Leadership Landscape: Perspectives from the Ground Level to 30,000 Feet
The Education Section and the American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT) will be issuing a call for educational session, platform and poster presentation proposals for the Educational Leadership Conference 2018. The submission site will open at the end of February and abstracts will be accepted until midnight, Eastern Standard Time, March 30, 2018. ELC 2018 will be held in Jacksonville, FL October 12-14th.
We invite academic administrators, faculty, and clinicians to engage with one another in the conference titled Our Leadership Landscape: Perspectives from the Ground Level to 30,000 Feet. The conference begins with the annual Dr. Geneva R. Johnson Forum on Innovation where participants are encouraged to consider the heights that education has reached, the altitude for which we need to strive, the turbulence along the way, and coming in for a perfect landing. We seek proposals that support excellence in one of five thematic areas:
- Taking flight and advancing PT education to promote access and equity
- Leading through innovation and simulation
- Embedding leadership skills across didactic and clinical education
- Developing strategies to build resilience in academic and clinical environments
- Blending leadership in interprofessional education
Platform Presentations: Platforms are approximately 15-20 minutes in length with the opportunity for brief question and answer discussions.
Poster Presentations: Multiple poster sessions are provided throughout the conference. Each poster shall be presented by one (1) of the author/s during the scheduled poster session time frame.
Educational Sessions: Sessions are approximately 1.5 hours in length with opportunity for Q & A.
All presentations must be submitted through ScholarOne. When the submission site opens, a link will be provided via another newsletter and it will be posted on our website here: http://acapt.org/events/event-details/2018/10/12/default-calendar/elc-2018 ) as well as on the Education Section’s website.
