Innovative Teaching Strategies

Repository for Innovative Strategies to Teach Professional Physical Therapy

About the Repository and review process

The Education Research Committee of ACAPT is creating a Repository for Innovative Strategies to Teach Professional Physical Therapy to provide examples of high-quality teaching and learning strategies that have been implemented as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Purpose: Physical Therapy programs have been required to rapidly respond to changing learning environments, and as a result novel teaching and learning strategies have been implemented by physical therapy educators.
