VITAL - Virtual Interprofessional Teaching And Learning
VITAL: Virtual Interprofessional Teaching And Learning is a six-module virtual learning series that covers key best practices and core competencies for interprofessional education (IPE) and virtual facilitation.
Virtual technology and virtual learning strategies are co-facilitated and modelled by two CACHE faculty leveraging; didactic theory bursts, small group breakouts, large group discussions/reflections, virtual stretch breaks, real-time polling, chat boxes and team simulation videos. The unique use of best practice videoconferencing team norms supports participant psychological safety, equity and attention to engagement in a virtual environment.
By the end of this series of six modules, we expect that you will:
Understand the rationale for advancing interprofessional education and interprofessional core competencies into learning activities for students, educators and clinicians.
Explore interprofessional virtual facilitation best practices, tips and resources.
Develop virtual and face-to-face strategies to enable increased faculty and clinical capacity and interest in IPE in academic and practice settings.
Leaders, educators and clinicians interested in pursuing interprofessional education initiatives and those who wish to experience and apply best practices for virtual teaching and learning.
