Call for Abstracts 2014

Abstract submission is now closed. Accepted abstracts will be posted through the agenda shortly. 

Join colleagues from around the world in examining how learning technologies can promote continuous improvement and better outcomes across the continuum of health professions education. The MedBiquitous Executive Committee is seeking high-quality abstracts for panel presentations and innovation demonstrations for the MedBiquitous Annual Conference 2014. The conference will take place May 19-20 at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD. We are seeking abstracts related to the following topics as they relate to the health professions:

  • Mobile learning, assessment, and improvement
  • Electronic portfolios
  • Virtual patients and simulation
  • Educational technology research
  • Connecting learning, performance, and patient outcomes
  • Data and content interchange
  • MedBiquitous standards implementation
  • Solutions for continuous improvement

Abstracts are due December 11, 2013 and may be submitted online.

Please note that presenters are required to register for the conference by March 31, 2014.

Panel Presentation

A 15 minute presentation to be grouped with other presentations on the same or similar topic. A question and answer period will follow.

Technology Demonstration

A 15 minute session demonstrating innovative technologies including those that implement MedBiquitous and other learning technology standards. Each session will include 10 minute demonstration and a 5 minute question and answer period. The demonstration will be given to small groups of attendees six times over a 90 minute period as attendees circulate among the demonstrations of greatest interest to them. This format is intended to provide an opportunity for direct interaction between attendees and technology developers. As a consideration to fellow presenters, please refrain from using external speaker systems.

Review Criteria

Abstract reviewers will be seeking abstracts that demonstrate:

  • New and innovative use of technology in medical/healthcare education. Innovation may be technical, pedagogical, or both.
  • Useful and novel implementation of technology standards related to the conference themes.
  • A significant impact, realized or potential, pedagogical or technical, on the use of technology in medical/healthcare education

We encourage presenters to present data on their findings whenever possible and to include perspective on the implications for educational practice and infrastructure.

Please note that abstracts are limited to 1500 characters.
