AVTE Seeks Speakers and Topics

September 18, 2012

The Association of Veterinary Technician Educators is seeking proposals for speakers and topics for its 23rd Biennial Symposium scheduled for July 25–28, 2013, in Denver. You are invited to submit a proposal and/or forward this to an industry professional you know would give a great presentation.

AVTE will gather as it does every other year to connect with other educators and suppliers, to discover and examine teaching trends and to explore a great city. High quality educational sessions are key to the success of the Symposium.
Speakers and topics will be chosen by the AVTE 2013 Program Committee from submissions received online before Oct. 1, 2012. The committee seeks proposals for sessions that:
  1. support the association’s mission of promoting quality education in veterinary technology;
  2. introduce new, unique and successful methods of teaching today’s college students;
  3. incorporate interactive learning methods (not completely lecture-based);
  4. share unique features of your program or experiences that are of interest to our members; and
  5. would be taught by professionals known for their exceptional teaching styles in the classroom or at conventions.
