The snowball symposia are a way of collaborating online through videoconferenced workshops so we can each benefit from the experience and wisdom of others.
They are called snowball as our efforts should gather momentum and reach as many people as possible. The snowball symposia are open to any medical educators anywhere in the world. Also for each workshop, the Euract country representative can request the lesson plan and slides from that workshop and are given permission to translate the materials into their own language and replicate the workshop in their own country.
It is about getting better at what we do through sharing!
