Thank you to everyone who participated in AMEE 2020.  Look out for an email with information on how to access all the Conference Resources Post Conference for up to one year.

Programme


The Conference runs for three days, with a choice of one-hour sessions scheduled over a 13 hour period each day (time used throughout is UK BST). Many sessions are held twice to enable participants around the world to catch one of the live question and answer sessions.  Session types in the scheduled programme are:


Invited Addresses: Plenary sessions with international speakers on topical issues relating to health professions education, held twice, with pre-recorded presentation followed by live question and answer sessions on each occasion

Best Practice sessions: Short pre-recorded presentations from a panel, also held twice, with live question and answer sessions on each occasion
Forums: Short pre-recorded presentations followed by time for live interaction and debate
Masterclasses: Practical, workshop-type sessions with lots of interaction, and the opportunity for live group discussion
AMEE Fringe: Two virtual renderings of this ever-popular session at AMEE conferences, with live discussion after the presentations
Exhibitor sessions: Short pre-recorded presentations from our commercial exhibitors on latest developments in teaching, learning, assessment and education management, with the opportunity for live interaction
Virtual Exhibition: The chance to browse our commercial, not-for-profit and academic exhibition stands, interact with the digital displays and talk with the exhibitor

In addition, you have 24-hour access throughout the Conference to the following resources:

On-demand programme: Drop in to the on-demand presentation rooms OD1-OD5 open 24 hours a day to access over 1,000 presentations consisting of Research papers, Doctoral reports, Patil Innovation presentations and Short communications. Sit down, click on a tablet, and search through the themed presentations, all tagged for easy access. Commentators have in many cases submitted a short video highlighting the key points in a theme.

The sessions in the scheduled 3-day programme will also be available on-demand soon after the session has taken place, so you can catch up on what you might have missed.

ePoster Exploration: Visit the ePoster Exploration room, click on one of the large ePoster Showcase screens and browse. All presentations are tagged for easy access. Commentators have in many cases submitted a short video highlighting the key points in a theme.

Please note: If you have submitted a video presentation in the On-demand programme, you do not need to present it again, or attend a session. See the other presentations in your theme, and view the Commentary, if one has been submitted.
