Conference Schedule [PDF]
This Twitter-hosted Conference is sponsored by the Education Innovation Institute (EII) of the Medical College of Georgia and Augusta University.
Each author will present their topic in a 10-15 Tweet thread over a 15 minute scheduled time slot followed by 15 minutes for questions and discussion over Twitter.
Presentations may involve text, links, and multi-media (images, gifs, videos, etc.).
They must be well planned and prepared. Even after the allotted time, the conversation can and often does continue.
A Presenter’s Guide with technical tips and guidance will be available for all presenters (and participants).

We designed this conference hosted on Twitter based on successful models in other disciplines, and we are very excited to introduce this format to medical education. We hope you take this opportunity to share your scholarship with the international medical education community in this new way.
We hope you will be a part of the first one in medical education. Join us with the hashtag: #MCGConf2021PIF
