LCI Presentation Submission 2018
Abstract Submission Deadline: Friday, April 27, 2018, 5:00 pm, PST
Presenters will be notified by Friday, May 25, 2018

We are seeking proposals dedicated to learning community activities in the following categories:
* Foundational Skills (e.g. feedback, clinical skills teaching, mentoring/advising)
* Innovations (e.g. wellness, peer mentoring, students as teachers, community building)
* Research / Outcomes

This year, we are excited to announce that we are soliciting manuscripts for a Special Collection of the Journal of Medical Education and Curriculum Development devoted to Learning Communities in Medical Education. Although it is not necessary to submit an abstract to the LCI Annual Meeting to be considered for this Special Collection, we would like to invite you to indicate during your submission if you would like to be considered for submitting a full manuscript to this journal. You will then be contacted by one of the Guest Editors for this collection with further instructions.



Goals: Workshops typically focus on a single aspect of a broader topic within research, teaching, or advising/mentoring. Workshops provide opportunities for attendees to gain new knowledge, skills, or expertise in an area related of learning communities’ activities. They also value the exchange of ideas in these areas to enhance the learning of all participants. The most effective and highly rated workshops are very interactive and include a range of perspectives.

Format: Interactive 90 minute sessions

Submission Requirements:
1. Short Session Summary (<100 words; for both the print preliminary program and online registration system) This should provide enough information so those considering registering to attend the conference have enough information to decide whether they wish to attend the session
2. Full Session Summary (<500 words). This will be available online and should inform potential attendees about your session. It will be seen by peer reviewers. This should include:
a. Background including Relevance to Learning Communities: How does this session fit within learning communities? (<150 words)
b. Measurable Learning Objectives (at least 3)
c. Workshop: Session Outline and Methods (be specific on the timing of each component of session)

Workshop: Session Capacity
Workshop: Audio/Visual needs


Goals: The goal of these sessions is to promote cross-institutional dialogue and collaboration in medical education, specifically by sharing learning community innovations, research, outcomes, and scholarly activity with colleagues from medical and other health profession schools across the country. Submission of works in progress is encouraged. We encourage student submissions, and encourage faculty members to invite students to be included in their submissions. Examples of successful past submissions include those that feature:
* challenges identified and addressed within a learning community
* innovations in mentoring and teaching (clinical skills, humanism, professionalism)
* assessments of the impact of learning communities on medical education

Format: Each brief oral presentation will be 10 minutes, followed by 5-minute discussion. All presentation rooms include computers and large monitors/screens.

Submission requirements: 300 words max with the following sections:
A. Background
B. Program description
C. Program evaluation (or proposed evaluation)
D. Discussion
E. Conclusions

Submissions not selected for brief oral presentations may be considered for poster presentation, if desired by the authors.


Goals: To share specific tools developed for teaching, administering, managing and evaluating learning community programs and to measure aspects of the medical school learning environment. Examples of Tools: Surveys, Handbooks, Trackers, Instructional Programs, Faculty Development Programs

Format: 10-minute summary presentation with 5 minutes for discussion, and provide each session attendee with one-page written “How-To” guide for the tool.

Submission Requirements: 300 words max. Presenters are required to upload the tool itself, along with a 1-page PDF "How-To" Guide that describes: the tool, primary users, objectives/goals, methods/materials, audience/beneficiaries, resource requirements. Relevant images are welcome.

Please follow the directions closely in the submission process.

Though the number of slots for each presentation format is limited, the LCI 2018 Research Committee would like to enable as many projects as possible to be presented and would appreciate the opportunity to adapt your proposal to an alternate format if appropriate. You will thus be asked during the submission process if you are willing to present your work in an alternate format.
