Welcome to the Submission System for the APPD Enhanced Learning Sessions
The APPD Program Planning Executive Committee is delighted to accept your submissions for our 2021 Annual Spring Meeting! This year's meeting is being planned entirely virtually as a 3-day online gathering to support the professional development and scholarship of the APPD community. This year we also welcome the Med-Peds Program Directors Association to the meeting.
Once again, this year, we are soliciting proposals for Enhanced Learning Sessions (ELS - previously known as workshops). ELS should include creative delivery methods to engage the meeting participants, including workshops, expert panel discussions, town halls, or other innovative formats.
The virtual format may necessitate changes from the typical presentation style of ELS offerings. This year's call for proposals asks you specifically to identify the interactive and virtual tools you will need in order to make your session successful in a virtual space. We are specifically encouraging use of a flipped classroom approach and will be able to disseminate preparatory materials to participants in advance. This year, you will also be able to choose between a 60-minute and 90-minute presentation format.
Proposal reviewers this year will be scoring submissions for their perceived suitability as virtual sessions. Proposals that appear to rely mostly on formal didactic content (i.e., extensive slide presentations or lectures) are not likely to score well.
As you prepare your proposal, please consider the following strategies to strengthen your ELS proposal:
Each of the above items will be considered by your proposal reviewers, who will be blinded to the names/institutions of the authors (they will only see how many institutions the authors represent). Information that is missing or not clearly elaborated may dampen enthusiasm for your proposal. Proofread the proposal carefully and consider having other colleagues critique it using the above instructions. You can examine the exact rubric used by our reviewers in evaluating your proposal by clicking the "Scoring Rubrics" link in the upper left corner of this screen.
Above all, ask questions of mentors and colleagues if you are new to writing ELS proposals.
Enhanced Learning Session submissions are due by December 9, 2020.
Note: Abstracts for Educational Scholarship and QI posters will be accepted on a separate submission, opening in early December 2020 and with a deadline in early January 2021.
