Call for Presentations

What does the future of facilitating student achievement, improving learning environments and advancing research look like in a new decade? What processes, strategies and solutions are you using to create, implement and deliver cutting-edge technologies, pedagogy and curriculum redesign?

The organizing committee of iCoN Summer Institute 20/20 invites prospective authors to submit abstracts for presentations through March 6, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.

Presentations should last 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of Q-and-A time, and relate to one or more of three tracks:

  • Pedagogy—using technology to transform teaching strategies
  • Research—research on using technology in the classroom or clinical settings
  • Simulation—using simulation activities to help students meet learning outcomes


The abstract should have a maximum of 500 words and provide information related to the following headers:

  • Purpose of project or research
  • Description of project or research
  • Key findings
  • Implications

The review committee will evaluate each abstract in a blind review process using the following

  • Relevance of the topic and potential contributions to the field
  • Quality of project or research
  • Originality and creativity of project or research
  • Quality of the writing
Note: Presentations that include the use of the iPad will be prioritized.
