Conference Management

Participating in learning events is a great way to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing between staff, students, patients and families.  Each year SickKids hosts numerous conferences on a vast variety of topics that are attended by local, national and international educators and learners.  The Learning Institute offers a comprehensive Conference Management Service to provide expert guidance to conference planners throughout the Hospital, from the organization to the execution of these educational events.

Role in Learning

The Learning Institute’s Conference Management Service provides staff with support and resources to help develop innovative, engaging and effective outcome-based learning experiences.  With expertise in conference planning ranging from creating promotional material to Continuing Medical Education (CME) course requirements, the service offers tools, templates and consultation appointments to support staff and build organizational capacity for the development of engaging and impactful educational events.
