2011 APA Education Leadership Conference
Interdisciplinary and Interprofessional Teaching, Research and Practice
This year's conference was held September 10-13, in Washington, DC, with the theme “Interdisciplinary and Interprofessional Teaching, Research and Practice.” In addition to APA governance members and division representatives, participants included representatives from over 25 organizations external to APA that are concerned with education and training in psychology.
The conference identified and discussed the opportunities and challenges ahead. Issues addressed included creating collaborative partnerships and projects, implications for our future as a discipline, training students for interdisciplinary careers and psychology’s role in interdisciplinary teaching and learning. We also explored technologies for increasing collaboration and identify core competencies for interprofessional practice.
