The conference itself will take place March 15-16, 2019, and will open with a plenary by Dr. Sheila Chauvin, Professor Emerita and Professor-Research (Gratis) at School of Medicine, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center – New Orleans. She will be presenting a session on “Leading Successful Change: An Application to Establishing TBL at your School.” Dr. Chauvin’s plenary is sure to be an exciting start to our conference!

The conference includes hands-on workshops, oral presentations, and poster sessions. Workshops are organized according to interest and experience levels, and include the Fundamentals, Innovation, and Research & Scholarship tracks. Participants are encouraged to sign up specifically for workshops in a designated track, or according to topics that interest them.
