Resources for Remote and Online Teaching

Note: The LCOM Curriculum Team in the Office of Medical Student Education will work closely with all faculty teaching online in medical student courses/clerkships. Please consult their guidance first. Likewise, the UVM Center for Teaching and Learning has resources for teaching graduate and undergraduate students at UVM https://www.uvm.edu/ctl/.

We recognize that many Teaching Academy members may be teaching online for other groups of learners and colleagues.  Below is a short list of resources to help you prepare:

NEW RESOURCE COLLECTIONS

Call for Submissions: New Collection on COVID-19-Related Student Volunteer and Service Projects
Students are eager to help in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is critical that those efforts be responsive to health system needs, prioritize student and community safety, and be undertaken jointly with students, schools, and health systems. This collection of resources will feature student volunteer and service projects done in collaboration with health systems and medical schools that, when feasible, facilitate social distancing.
