SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION

Small Group Discussions are intended for presentation of a timely topic, issue, or problem which would generate lively and useful dialogue or debate. Unlike the Workshop format - where the emphasis is on imparting to the audience a particular skill or core set of knowledge (for example) - Small Group Discussions offer an ideal venue for the sharing of ideas, strategies, and opinions. Multi-institution proposals are encouraged, and presenters/facilitators will have 90 minutes to define the issue or problem and orchestrate input from those who have experience addressing it. Strategies to encourage active audience participation should be explicitly described.

Review Criteria:

  • Timeliness and potential for interest
  • Clarity of Proposal
  • Appropriateness of proposal for the Small Group Discussion Format
  • Experience/expertise of the presenters

Proposal Format: (800 words or less)

  • Title
  • Description of the issue/topic and rationale
  • Session objectives
  • Strategies for audience involvement
  • Session plan
  • Presenters
  • Abstract (75 words or less, not included in 800 word proposal limit)

Past Small Group Discussions:

  • "Does the Recognition of Faculty Have to be a Win/Lose Proposition?"
  • "Defining the Role of Simulation in Reducing Medical Errors"
  • "Innovations and Fun with Systems-Based Practice Education"

WORKSHOP

The Workshop format is similar in structure to the Small Group Discussion, although the purpose here is to train or educate audience members in a given skill or knowledge base. As such, the goal of this 90-minute session is to allow audience members to acquire or practice a particular skill (for example). The presentation should be designed to give audience members a chance to work on a common problem - so a "hands-on" approach can be taken. Strategies to encourage audience members' active participation should be explicitly described, and multi-institution proposals are encouraged.

Review Criteria:

  • Timeliness and potential for interest
  • Clarity of Proposal
  • Appropriateness of proposal for the Small Group Discussion Format
  • Experience/expertise of the presenters

Proposal Format: (800 words or less)

  • Title
  • Description of the issue/topic and rationale
  • Learning objectives
  • Session plan
  • Presenters
  • Abstract (75 words or less, not included in 800 word proposal limit)

Past Workshops:

  • "Teaching in an Outpatient Setting: Providing Models for Improvement"
  • "Integrating Various Simulations in Teaching and Assessment"
  • "Troubleshooting Your Presentations: How to Become a More Effective and Interesting Presenter"
