Blended Learning + Parallel or Plenary Symposium (incl. webcast)

Opportunity to organise an Official Satellite Symposium in a Plenary Hall, up to 90 minutes (Programme subject to the approval of the Meeting Scientific Committee) combined with online learning activities (pre- and post-test), to achieve optimal learning outcomes. A combination of subject-matter expertise, and instructional design is required to develop and implement an effective blend of both online and traditional educational delivery methods. To get the most out of a Satellite Symposium and/or Scientific Session at the ICS Meeting, blended-learning programmes are an excellent opportunity to inform and engage with delegates before, during and after the Meeting. Next to the advantages for companies - scalability, innovation, customisation - blended learning activities are also proven to be a popular choice for learners by allowing them to take advantage of the flexible and convenient access and pace that an online course allow; thereby enhancing the face-to face experience with alternative methods for learner preparation and evaluation.

A blended learning programme of ICS includes:

  • Online pre-/ post-test and/or possible video’s (if available) linked to a Satellite Symposium, Outcomes Measurement

Non-CME Educational Session
Opportunity to support a session on one of the Meeting days. An excellent opportunity to run an educational workshop/session with the delegates in a small working environment. Create a hands on, interactive session for the delegates which will be of great interest to them; the meeting workshops are attended by more than 2⁄3 of the total delegates who attend the ICS Annual Meetings, proving their thirst for knowledge. Educational sessions in the format of interactive workshops are incredibly popular and often book out. Scientific content/speakers and time slots are subject to the approval by the ICS.
