Best research idea awardDuring the speed dating session, all participants had three different ‘dates’, for fifteen minutes each. During each date, a research idea was generated, which was supposed to be an combination of the research interests of the two participants. Fifteen minutes was a very short time for coming up with a research idea AND writing it down, so many of the research ideas were quite unreadable!
Still, many excellent research ideas were generated during the speed-dating session. The nominated research ideas were rated by a jury consisting of Diana Dolmans, Jeroen van Merriënboer, Jan van Dalen en Marjan Govaerts. All ideas were rated on their novelty, relevance, multi-disciplinarily and the fit of methods to the research question. Runner-ups were Katerina Bohle-Carbonell & Sören Huwendiek, and Kal Winston & Michaela Wagner, but the best research idea award was won by Endang Lestari and Janneke Frambach! Their winning research questions was: How to “glocalize” interprofessional education (IPE)? They planned a case study to develop and evaluate IPE across cultures. Congratulations!
Best Poster Award
A total of 31 posters were presented by the PhD students, and another 7 posters were presented by SHE staff members. Thank you all for the great work! All posters of PhD students were inspected by a jury consisting of Kevin Eva, Renée Stalmeijer, Cees van der Vleuten en Evert Koldewijn. After the postersession, a shortlist of 8 posters was presented, which consisted of the posters of Mariëtte van Loon, Mohammed Al-Eraky, Esther Bergman, Sören Huwendiek, Ellen Kok, Michaele Wagner-Menghin, Chris Harrison and Joost Dijkstra.
But with so much quality, the jury was hung and couldn’t decide which poster should win. They brought in three additional experts, and finally decided: The best poster awards were won by Mohammed Al-Eraky and Ellen Kok.
The poster by Ellen Kok showed the use of a fairly new research technique in Medical education. The research was considered practically relevant and building towards theory development, while making replication possible.
The poster by Mohammed Al-Eraky clearly showed the linearity of the study. The research is highly contextually relevant and also has a high health-care relevance. Furthermore, the poster was really creative.
