Pandemic Education

Research Team-Lead: Natasha Hubbard Murdoch

COVID-19 caused a rapid transition of higher education programs to online delivery. Healthcare education programs are of particular concern due to gross shortages of health professionals. Online delivery/remote learning revisits the increased academic challenge for students impacted by social determinants of health. This is the ‘digital divide.’ Online learning should prepare students for the future of work, yet online platforms hindered the ability to individualize teaching and to effectively support student emotional and educational needs as they become professionals. This research seeks the faculty experience of transitioning and the impacts to health profession education for the future of education, healthcare, and society.
