The organising committee is keen to receive abstracts in this format to ensure consistency and get a strong Vet Ed message across.  We would love you to visit sunny Queensland and share your initiatives and great ideas with others.  We also hope you will make some great collaborators and friends.

Feel free to tell us what is used and emerging at your University, School or you use specifically in your own course. You can present this as an interactive poster or workshop at the VetEd Down Under symposium in February 2020.  Just follow the guidelines for abstract format using the template provided; and highlight if it is for an abstract or a workshop at your submission.  Make sure to submit your abstract before the deadline and also submit your registration for this exciting event.  We are looking forward to seeing you and hearing about your efforts, research and experiences.
