About the Guidance for Teaching Online for Healthcare Educators programme

These elearning resources were developed to enable all healthcare educators in planning and delivering online teaching sessions. The elearning sessions aim to support healthcare educators to incorporate online teaching in their practice and use technology to enhance the learning process for students.

The sessions have been designed to help healthcare educators move between face to face and online teaching effectively.

Session 1: This session explores the opportunities, challenges and misconceptions associated with online learning. It offers guidance on the factors that need to be considered when planning your online teaching.

Session 2: This session explores the practical aspects of teaching online, explains how to select an online platform and describes how online tools can enrich the learning experience for educators and students.
