Amy Brugge and Theresa Skrien key partners for Innovation Teaching Award
For the 20-21 academic year, the M.S. in Athletic Training program began a virtual clinic experience with the athletic training program at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter. Faculty from both programs served as mentors for 3-4 hours every afternoon while students from the two programs completed clinical simulations collaboratively in Zoom. This was something athletic training faculty and the Gustavus program director created last summer, knowing both programs would be facing a shortage of clinical placements and that there would be a decrease in the overall volume of patient encounters in the clinical sites that were still functioning. The faculty at Gustavus received their institution's Innovative Teaching Award for this collaborative virtual clinic.
