To help physical therapy education programs collectively
innovate, share, and implement best-practice teaching methods that meet
our students' educational needs during the pandemic climate, ACAPT
offered this free webinar: Lessons from the Trenches: The Nuts & Bolts of Implementing a Lab Immersion.
Description: Physical therapy faculty are finding
themselves navigating curricular challenges in the current COVID-19
environment. Every program is being stretched to explore alternative
modes of content delivery and assessment, with most incorporating hybrid
andragogical models. While online coursework continues, there remains
the challenge of delivering laboratory experiences to “catch up” and
complete didactic courses once face-to-face classroom instruction safely
THANK YOU to Dr. Casey Unverzagt, Dr. Brian Young and Dr. Kendra Gagnon, who shared
the nuts and bolts of hybrid learning and immersive lab instruction
developed by the Baylor University DPT Program. They also shared
lessons from the battlefield in specific courses (e.g. musculoskeletal,
neuromuscular, cardiopulmonary, etc.) and answered questions. Big
thanks to Director of the Baylor University Doctor of Physical Therapy
Program Michael Walker, who organized this event.
ACAPT welcomes ideas & solutions to help meet the needs of DPT
programs. Submit your suggestions for continuing education, professional
development, guidelines, tools, best practices and more.
