Workshop Submission Guidelines
Please review the submission guidelines, important dates and required fields using these Workshop Guidelines.
You will need to select one of the following formats upon submission:
Interactive Discussion: Sessions should be interactive, providing innovative content without the excessive use of PowerPoint or lecture style format. Sessions should provide in-depth coverage on a topic rather than trying to cover too much general material.
Skills Development: Sessions provide the “nuts and bolts” on a variety of issues in learning. The format may incorporate hands-on learning or be discussion focused.
Case Study: Pharma, bio, device, and diagnostic companies share their first-person accounts of strategies and programs that work.
Thought Leader Panel: Experts and practitioners offer similar and opposing views on relevant topics in training. Includes meaningful Q&A time.
Best Practice Roundtable: Informal format provides the opportunity to network and share challenges, resources, and approaches to tackling a hot topic or specific area of interest.
Micro-Learning: 20 Minute Micro-Learning session that delivers bite-sized content to learners that they can consume all at once and apply the knowledge immediately.
