Effective Online Learning by Design – Preparing for Life Post-Pandemic
July 23, 2020, 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET

The pandemic has resulted in a disruption of medical education and professional training. There has been an emergency response to replace existing approaches to medical education and provide educational content and training online. Solutions have been implemented for speed and ease of adaptation.

Many are seeing increases in attendance at these educational events and are realizing the benefits to online learning. 

How do we position online learning post-pandemic for the future?

This session will focus on how online learning can be approached through effective instructional design to achieve high levels of outcomes using asynchronous, synchronous and blended methods of delivery.
