The World Chiropractic Federation (WFC) has announced that the 11th WFC Association of Chiropractic Colleges (ACC) World Education Conference will be held November 2-5, 2022 at Logan University. The campus outside of St. Louis will attract educators, researchers, academics and association leaders from around the world, showcasing the best in chiropractic learning, innovation and research.
The deadline for abstract submission is June 1, 2022.
Authors from all nations are invited to submit abstracts describing their research and educational innovations in chiropractic. Material submitted should be relevant to teaching, learning, assessment, faculty development, governance or any other area of education.
Platform presentations: Platform summaries of 250 words or less should include: objective, methods, results, and conclusion. Experimental studies involving human subjects (e.g., controlled trials, pilot studies, cohort studies, and surveys) must have IRB / ethics board approval or exemption as determined by the institution of the author.
Poster presentations: Abstracts for posters of 250 words or less should include: objective, methods, results and conclusion. Experimental studies involving human subjects (e.g., controlled trials, pilot studies, cohort studies, and surveys) must have IRB / ethics board approval or exemption as determined by the institution of the author.
Workshop presentations: Workshop facilitators will provide an interactive workshop to develop participants’ skills. Workshops should include active learning – not be just lectures, not a series of presentations, nor a substitute for science platform sessions. The workshop proposal of 250 words or less should include a brief description, a list of competency-based learning objectives and an outline of the presentation that can be completed in 45 minutes. If the proposal is selected for review, a more detailed overview will be requested.
Presentations of innovations: Innovation presentations showcase genuine educational innovation that is being implemented. A description of the specific innovation should be able to be shared in 6 minutes or less and will be part of a roundtable. Innovation sessions are not lectures or a substitute for platform presentations. Innovation abstracts of 250 words or less should include: the rationale or need for the innovation, a brief description of the innovation and the potential impact on chiropractic education.
