I can’t believe it’s already August! Of course, that means that the AMEE conference is right around the corner. As many of you know, GAME has been working with the leadership of AMEE to bring CME/CPD education and resources to AMEE members. This year, GAME is co-sponsoring two sessions at the conference in Milan, Italy.
On Sunday August 31, GAME will deliver a preconference workshop (28) on "Micro and Macro Systems Impact on the Science of Learning and Change." Jann Balmer, Jonas Nordquist (Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden), Don Moore (Vanderbilt School of Medicine, Nashville, Tennessee, USA), and myself will focus on the theoretical basis for the science of learning and change in continuing professional development and its implementation with an awareness of the impact of systems.
On Tuesday September 2 and by Live Online Session, GAME will deliver a symposium (9B) on "The Science of Learning and Change in Continuing Professional Development". Once again, the preconference faculty from Sunday will focus on the theoretical and translational foundations of continuing professional development (CPD) and the discussion format will highlight three critical themes for effective continuing education (CE). Check out the AMEE website (www.AMEE.org) if you’re interested in virtually joining the GAME leadership on September 2.
Also, a quick reminder that GAME will be hosting a regional conference in Mumbai, India on October 18, 2014. Details will be posted on the GAME website in the next few weeks.
Lastly, we’d love to hear from you! Your experience with GAME, what we’re doing right, what we’re missing, and where you think we should be headed.
