THINKING OUT OF THE BOX LUNCH

On Thursday,  April 14th of 2016 Surgical Education Week, the ASE Curriculum Committee will again sponsor Thinking Out of the Box Luncheon, a forum for the brief presentation of creative ideas which are educationally sound, but which may not have undergone rigorous evaluation of efficacy. We are seeking presentations not only about creative teaching methods but also about faculty development, information technology and assessment and evaluation.lunchbox

The idea is to have members share creative ideas that have worked for them. As the forum will be at the “unassigned” lunch hour, a box-lunch will be provided at a nominal cost.

We are now soliciting ideas for presentation at the 13th annual rendition. A special abstract form for this forum is attached. We request abstract submissions by November 15, 2015 in order to gauge the amount of interest and give all authors an opportunity to prepare. Abstracts accepted will be presented from the podium during lunch. PowerPoint slides may be presented but will need to be submitted well in advance.

A subcommittee of the Curriculum Committee will review submitted abstracts. Within our time constraints, we will accept as many submissions as possible. Presenters will be expected to produce a fact sheet for their presentation so that each attendee may have further references or contacts should they wish to adopt the idea. Please note the request to include your presentation on the members-only area of our web site after the meeting. On behalf of the Curriculum Committee, we look forward to your submission of creative teaching methods.

Chair, Curriculum Committee
