WE ARE NOW INVITING SUBMISSIONS FOR THE LLLP CONFERENCE
The 2023 LLLP conference theme, Blazing New Trails, is inspired by our majestic Rocky Mountains, which are steadfast in inspiration and determination.
LLLP 2023 will focus on climbing the mountain of learning together, simultaneously blazing new trails for our profession and successors.
We invite you to submit an proposal to the conference committee addressing one of the four themes of the conference:
1. Base Camp – Teaching and Learning Essentials
A goal of the LLLP conference is to provide insights that improve everyone’s teaching. In alignment with this goal, sessions will highlight methods that are shown to be successful and improving student knowledge, introduce novel techniques, and describe strategies used in an online environment compared to in person instruction.
To achieve this in “Base Camp”, topics may include (but are not limited to):
- adult learning principles
- curricular/instructional design
- assessment for or of learning
- interprofessional learning (how it is taught)
***This session aligns with FIP Development Goal #5 “Competency Development”
2. Carabineers, Clips and Cairns – Tools of the Climb
The LLLP Conference will assist educators to be up-to-date with the latest tools and technologies that are useful to teaching and learning.
To achieve this, “Carabineers” sessions will highlight innovative techniques and approaches, such as:
- digital technology (e.g. New phone applications, gamification)
- mentoring/coaching (Learning management systems)
- simulation programs
***This session maps to FIP Development Goals 2: “Early Career Training”, 6: “Leadership Development” and 20: “Digital Health”
3. Elevations – Gaining Ground through Training
Another LLLP conference goal is to demonstrate how educational programs can advance the profession. Thus, sessions will present interventions that address service needs, support career advancement and develop life-long learners.
To achieve this in “Elevations”, topics may include (but are not limited to):
- self-directed lifelong learning
- certificate programs
- advanced training outcomes
- competency-based education
***This session aligns with FIP Development Goals 4: “Advanced and Specialist Development” and 9: “CPD Strategies”
4. Summit – Transformation of Practice through Learning
The LLLP Conference will inspire educators to demonstrate the impact of learning on healthcare. In line with this, sessions will highlight not only the educational impact, but also the return on investment to society.
To achieve this in “Summit”, topics may include (but are not limited to):
- demonstrating impact of learning in practice
- education-based PI/QI initiatives
- organizational return on investment (ROI)
- e.g. Do initiatives have measurable public health or community level impacts?
***This session maps to FIP Development Goal 11 “Impact and Outcomes”
In 2020 the International Pharmaceutical Federation agreed on 21 Development Goals (DGs) for transforming the pharmacy profession over the next decade globally, regionally and nationally. The Life Long Learning Conference is aligning with these goals, and requests authors to consider assigning relevant DGs to their submissions. View here.
