CLEC Tackles Topics at the Forefront of Clinical Laboratory Science Education
Explore opportunities, challenges and best practices for increased use of simulation and technology in the laboratory science curriculum. Attend the ASCLS 28th Annual Clinical Laboratory Educators' Conference (CLEC), February 23-25, 2012, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Whether your program is struggling to find clinical laboratory training sites, or looking to start laboratory experience earlier, at CLEC 2012, you'll see real-life examples of successful trends in education.
Review the full CLEC schedule in the conference brochure at http://www.ascls.org/CLEC. Read to the end of this message for a few of the sessions on simulated learning that you may want to take a closer look at.
Register online at http://www.ascls.org/CLEC or return your printed registration form by mail or fax. The early-bird registration is January 27, 2012 (extended from January 13 to give you additional time to process payments).

Don't Miss These Sessions on Simulated Learning
* "An Overview of Minnesota Educator/Industry Collaboration and a Simulated Laboratory Clinical Experience," Friday, February 24, 10:30 a.m. - Hear how educator/industry collaboration led to the development of a simulated clinical laboratory experience at Saint Paul College in Minnesota, and about the three-year, $3.2 million Department of Labor grant supporting the program.
* Hot Topics: "Implementation of Virtual Microscopy for Distributed Hematology Morphology Instruction," Friday, February 24, 2 p.m. - Minnesota educators will discuss the implementation of virtual microscopy in comparison to traditional microscopy at two performance sites. They'll describe the tools developed to provide comparable experiences and discuss barriers and solutions.
* "Best Practices in Laboratory Simulation Activities," Saturday, February 25, 7:30 a.m. - Learn best practices for providing rigorous training through simulation activities.
In addition, poster presentations and technology demonstrations include:
* "Use of Stereographic 3D Video for Enhancing the Learning Experience of Phlebotomists in Training"
* "Teaching Hematology Morphology Online...Can It Work?"
* "Using Online Instruction and Virtual Laboratories to Teach Hemostasis"
CLEC provides a wide variety of educational sessions by faculty at the forefront of clinical laboratory science education. Join us in February to learn strategies for approaching these and other challenges and opportunities.
We hope to see you at CLEC 2012!
