Teaching and Learning in the Time of COVID-19
The Big Pivot in learning and teaching required – very suddenly – a halt of face-to-face learning and the rapid transition to alternate delivery, both academically and clinically. In the face of this pandemic and seemingly overnight, teaching and learning went virtual – and the volume of information on online pedagogy – best and emerging practices, how to transition to online, using simulation, supervising learners doing virtual care – became overwhelming.
To address this information overload, the UHN-Michener library team and Clinical Education are collaborating with partners from Learning, Innovation & Research (LIR) and The Institute for Education Research (TIER) to curate relevant, reliable sources of information to facilitate knowledge synthesis and mobilization to enable all our teachers and learners to realize the best education and best teaching and learning experience.
We will also be curating Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and our information SWAT team is ready to find the evidence to answer your questions about teaching and learning in the time of COVID.
Access these resources, and more, on the
Teaching and Learning in the Time of COVID-19 site.
