APS Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology

Teaching in a Post-COVID World

Featured Topic — Thursday, April 29, 2021 — 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM — Virtual Session, Room APS-10
Teaching of Physiology Section — Chair: Ryan Downey — Co-Chair: Dee Silverthorn

The coronavirus pandemic in early 2020 created an immediate need to change the way education was delivered. Schools from the elementary to professional levels shifted almost overnight from face-to-face to remote online teaching and assessment. This in turn required instructors to reconsider the content they were teaching, to try new modalities, and to implement new technologies to help students continue to learn effectively. This Featured Topic is designed to have those instructors share the challenges, successes, and failures of this transition and to discuss what teaching in the post-COVID world now looks like.
