Background: The new global situation of the COVID19 pandemic mandates the transition of medical education and teaching from physical to rapidly expanding technology based teaching (virtual learning) creating challenges in effecting a successful learning platform in a busy setting. Virtual learning and learning platforms are defined as a range of integrated web-based applications that provide teachers and learners with information, tools, and resources to support and enhance educational delivery and management. Constructing an effective virtual learning platform needs multiple phases and strategies to accommodate it into daily busy clinical practice.
Who Should Participate: The workshop welcomes all stakeholders in medical education - physicians, training program leaders, faculty development and other educators interested in medical education and teaching.
Structure of Workshop: Participants will be engaged in several activities: (1) Interactive didactic introduction highlights the history; definition of virtual learning platform and important elements and significance in virtual teaching and education in the clinical setting. (2) Engagement in discussions and reflections on video-clips in how to create and build the virtual platform and identify fundamentals for success. (3) In small group discussion participants will identify barriers to implementing a virtual learning platform in a daily busy clinical environment. (4) At the end we will share some measures to assess the effectiveness of the virtual learning platform on patient outcomes and learners’ behaviors, skills and knowledge.
Intended Outcomes:

  • Define the virtual learning platform and the components highlighting its importance in virtual teaching and education     

  • Identify benefits and challenges to implement it in a busy clinical setting

  • Describe different strategies and steps to build a virtual platform and how to assess its effectiveness
