I’m delighted to announce that for future congresses, starting with Berlin 2015, the EAN will award up to 5 certificates of ‘excellence in teaching’ to the best speakers in any of the congress educational activities (interactive workshops, teaching courses, hands on courses). This will be based on learner feedback collected at the congress, and analysed by the Quality Assurance subcommittee who will make recommendations to the Education Committee & board of the EAN.
Awardees will be named in Neuropenews after the congress and receive a certificate and congratulatory letter. All speakers will be eligible, and the information will also be recorded in the EAN speaker database which is being developed.
