The AMEE Patil Teaching Innovation Awards, formerly known as the Patil Awards, have been made possible through a donation from Professor Nivritti Patil, University of Hong Kong. The Awards will be made to participants at AMEE conferences who have presented a short communication that is judged by a Committee to have demonstrated innovation in relation to teaching and learning methods, assessment or curriculum planning.
Process: Submissions selected will be scheduled for presentation in one of two sessions on day 1 or day 2 of the Conference. The sessions will be judged by a Committee and one or more presenters will receive an AMEE Teaching Innovation Award, which will be announced in the Conference closing session.
Submission Criteria: Abstracts should be submitted in the Patil Teaching Innovation Awards category. Those not selected for presentation in one of these sessions will automatically be considered for a regular short communication session.
Prize: Winners will receive an AMEE Teaching Innovation Award Certificate and free registration to the following year’s AMEE Conference.
