3rd Annual QART Summer School
August 24-27, 2020
The 3rd Annual Quebec Autism Research Training (QART) Summer School will be held virtually from 9 am – 1 pm on August 24-27th, 2020. We expect more than 15 local and international experts (researchers, professionals, autistic individuals and family members) to contribute to the various training activities, which range from lectures to interactive skills development sessions. During these sessions, trainees are encouraged to proactively shape the program by providing feedback and through peer-to-peer learning. Topics previously covered include fundamental and clinical research, epidemiology, ethics and open science, public health, as well as career development and written and oral communication skills.
We have an exciting lineup of both local and international speakers this year, some of which have agreed to open their sessions to the TACC student members.
