Please see attached for a booklet created by a colleague from University of Brighton, UK. Paul Levy has collected these ideas and I found it both reassuring and stimulating to review his suggestions.
Reassuring as we have implemented virtual office hours, lunch and learn activities, lunch and fun days, expert panels etc. into our Virtual Simulated Clinical (starting Tuesday after Victoria Day - yikes!!)
Stimulating in that there were some additional "quick win" suggestions that I can look to include for our students - my current #1 to do is thinking about a weekly Top10 activity where we generate a blog entry for a topic e.g. Top 10 interesting genetics websites; or Top 10 favourite podcasts, where students and faculty co-contribute ideas to the blog to share ideas and resources. No concern if we don't hit or we exceed 10...it's a target! Might be a fun idea.
Anyhow, here is Paul's booklet, shared with permission.
