Teaching on a Virtual Platform

A joint MED and CEP workshop


Learning objectives

This session is designed for medical educators of all levels.

The Covid-19 pandemic has pushed us all in to a virtual world with variable success. Expert delivery of educationally valuable virtual teaching sessions is a skill many of us wish for. In this session we will look at how we need to adapt our teaching styles to deliver engaging and educational sessions, how we might measure the learner engagement with our sessions and there will be an opportunity to discuss and learn from each others experiences across the virtual platforms.

By the end of the session, you will be able to;

  • Recognise differences in approaches to teaching in learning online compared with face-to-face.
  • Describe the opportunities and challenges offered by teaching on a virtual platform.
  • Evaluate learner engagement when teaching on virtual platforms.
  • Identify strategies to support teaching on a virtual platform.
