We are looking not only for a brief back story of your educational approach
during the crisis, but more importantly, want to encourage you to share your success with online education with your colleagues, in a manner that they too might apply it. So, rather than a mini-version of an article in the Journal of Veterinary Medical Education
, we are looking for a publishable “educational artifact”
of your instruction. The relevant topics include any in veterinary medicine and/or animal health
, and any instructor (faculty, resident, intern or other) in veterinary or veterinary technician programs
can apply. Moreover, we are looking for ways that you might have gone beyond a simple recording of your normal lecture presentations to ways that you both educated and engaged your students, even including externally available resources. That recorded lecture might be part of your educational artifact, but we are looking for how you applied some of the affordances of online education
. Or perhaps you used resources already available to you and focused on how you interacted with the students. For ideas of what we mean, please see https://newlearningonline.com/e-learning.
We expect that most submissions may be the equivalent of an interaction around a single topic (perhaps including content of one or more lectures), but if creativity is deemed equivalent, those who present evidence of broader application
will be considered favorably. AND as we are telling students about this also, student nominations and/or documentation of student support
of an instructor and their online instruction will also be considered favorably.
