Norman Education Research Day 2020


NERD 2020

The Norman Education Research Day is dedicated to celebrating the rich history and future of Health Professions Education research and scholarship across the Faculty of Health Sciences and McMaster University and is named after one of McMaster’s longstanding faculty, Dr. Geoff Norman. Dr. Norman is a Professor Emeritus, a Scientist at McMaster Education Research, Innovation & Theory (MERIT) program, and a member of the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact.

This event will be hosted in an online format this year and is an opportunity to hear from leaders in Health Professions Education research and for the community to come together and advance education research. We welcome you to connect with other professionals who, like you, share a passion to create a brighter future for health professionals and address emerging issues within Health Professions Education.

Please join us for invited plenary and presenters from across FHS and campuses.
