Empowered to Teach, Inspired to Learn: Creating Excellence in Chiropractic Education

Introduction
The framework of teaching and learning in health care education is constantly evolving. Whether in undergraduate education or postgraduate training and lifelong learning, the delivery of knowledge and skills is influenced by emerging trends, technological advances and the needs of learners.

This inspiring event will feature international experts in healthcare education from both inside and outside the chiropractic profession and will cover areas such as teaching methodology, learning technology and innovation, curriculum development and evaluation, student assessment and faculty training. It will explore the current developments in chiropractic education and will showcase examples of best practice and emerging innovations designed to strengthen engagement, optimise outcomes and meet learner expectations.

The program will feature plenary presentations, panel debate, concurrent workshop tracks and platform research presentations.

Conference objectives
The WFC / ACC Education Conference is the world’s leading event dedicated to chiropractic education and training. This outstanding conference will bring together leaders and international experts to discuss and debate emerging trends in chiropractic education and will showcase the latest  evidence-informed educational research.

Delegates will have the opportunity to listen to renowned international experts in the field of healthcare education and share best practices from around the world. Inspiring, interactive workshops will focus on enhancing the learner experience whilst equipping faculty to develop skills and knowledge by better understanding innovations in key areas of knowledge transfer. At the same time, other stakeholders in chiropractic education, including national association leaders, will develop fresh perspectives to inform national and international development of the chiropractic profession.

Who should attend?
This conference addresses subjects that will be of interest to not only those actively engaged in chiropractic education, such as institutional leaders, faculty members, accrediting agencies, examining bodies, board members and students but also those involved in postgraduate training and lifelong learning. With chiropractic education serving as the foundation of professional development, legislative efforts and policy, leaders of national chiropractic organizations are also encouraged to attend.
