Online Teaching Tips
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become increasingly necessary to utilize online methods of teaching. These virtual approaches must be high quality and interactive. Spectrum Health actively supports our faculty and teachers through this educational transformation. Most online education provided by Spectrum Health has been through an approved, HIPAA secure, Zoom account provided by Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, our partner in medical education. We embrace additional platforms, including Microsoft Teams, as well.
Initially launched in March 2020, this resource collection was built in response to the COVID-19 pandemic’s significant impact on the teaching and learning of health professionals. Designed by diverse educators, this working collection features clinical learning experiences, which can be readily used or easily adapted for specific, local settings, without the need for physical patient contact. The collection is actively used by thousands of medical educators around the world. Learn more.
Well-planned online learning experiences are meaningfully different from courses offered online in response to a crisis or disaster. Educators working to maintain instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic should understand those differences when evaluating this emergency remote teaching. Learn more about the differences.
