Preconference Workshop on Designing Simulation-based Educational Research

Date: Thursday, September 11, 2014

Time: 2:00 – 5:00 pm

Fee: $50


Join us for this interactive workshop sponsored by the ACS-AEI Research & Development Committee that is appropriate for all learners, at all levels of experience, who are interested in sharpening their skills in research design. The workshop will be a part of an ongoing series of “How To’s” in designing, collecting and reporting the findings of a research study.  The ultimate goal is to give participants the necessary skills and knowledge to complete a research study and to submit a manuscript to a journal for consideration. 


After receiving instruction, participants will be grouped together to design to a research study, while the faculty serve as consultants and provide guidance throughout the process.  Each group will then make a presentation and receive feedback not only from the other faculty, but from the other groups.  This feedback will be given in a collegial manner, with the goal of designing a strong research study. Each participant will also receive a copy of the newly released ACS-AEI Simulation-based Surgical Education Research Manual to take home.


This workshop is chaired by James Korndorffer, MD, MHPE, Tulane University, and will feature the following faculty, Rajesh Aggarwal, MD, PhD, FRCS, University of Pennsylvania and Janis Cannon-Bowers, PhD, Cubic Advanced Learning Solutions.
