Online by design: Translating hands-on practicals to mixed-mode classes
Dr Michelle Rank
Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences
Although we were poised to move gracefully into online teaching via FlexAP initiatives, we were shifted unceremoniously into this space in 2020. This sudden shift was especially challenging for subjects like undergraduate and postgraduate anatomy that relied heavily on demonstrations and hands-on practical experiences. This presentation describes the anatomy teaching team’s design of a suite of asynchronous and synchronous resources that translate anatomy practicals into an online delivery format. The presentation showcases the online design process and the outcomes achieved while highlighting the components that are worthwhile to keep and evolve for dual delivery formats.
This Zoom presentation was part of the Melbourne CSHE Teaching and Learning Conference 2021 held on Wednesday 2 June 2021.
