Workshop submissions are extremely competitive every year; on average, only about 25% of submissions are accepted.
The most successful workshops are highly interactive and address innovative ideas and learner-centered needs.
Major criteria for workshop selection include:
- Important and timely topic
- Innovativeness of proposal
- Clear learning objectives
- Leader skill expertise
- Interactive and attractive format
While the format may vary, workshops should be designed to facilitate discussions between workshop leaders and participants. The workshop may include a short didactic presentation, but the overall intention of these sessions is to actively involve the attendees in the learning process. Workshop leaders and participants should be prepared to jointly dive into this cooperative venture!
To maximize the diversity of topics and leaders, preference may be given to workshops that have not been presented in both of the past two years. We also encourage the development of workshops that appeal to more senior faculty as well as trainees. Workshops will be selected to maximize audience participation and ensure a broad diversity of topics.
