A Brief History of the ACC Educational Conference

In March 1994, the ACC held its first educational conference to promote educational research and to educate the educators on new pedagogical techniques. Since that time, the size and quality of the ACC Educational Conference has continued to improve. Over the years, the conference and the educational, basic science, and clinical research presentations have grown in quality and representation.

The first time that the ACC Educational Conference and the Research Agenda Conference were held jointly was in 2002. The Research Agenda Conference (RAC) focuses on research training for chiropractic college faculty, students, practitioners, and professional staff and primarily consists of hands on training workshops. The ACC Educational Conference promotes institutional and academic excellence and learning and focuses on two areas, the bringing together of staff, administration, and faculty in a collaborative fashion to discuss various topics at group meetings and the presentation of peer-reviewed papers in poster or platform presentations.
