In this SSHRC funded study, our multidisciplinary team from several caring professions will use a mixed methods approach to develop an evidence-informed framework that articulates the conditions that promote creation of productive e-learning opportunities to support students to develop essential virtual caring competencies. This framework will build upon evidence related to effective teaching of caring competencies using online technologies, and advance theoretical understanding relevant to developing interpersonal and technological skills required to work in virtual settings.
In this funded Teaching Scholars project, I am developing, implementing, and evaluating Practice Learning and Teaching Orientations (PLATO) courses to support the development of effective partnerships between preceptors and students.
