Due to the overwhelming demand of our APTA Academy of Education Physical Therapist Assistant Educators Special Interest Group recent webinar series, we are offering a series of webinars for our physical therapy faculty with CEU credit.

Educators should leave this session with a clear understanding of best practices and benefits of using video-based observations as a solution for continuity in education. This supports our webinar goal of addressing the disruption this pandemic has caused to our usual practices related to assessing student skills competency. This webinar will focus on the continued development of physical therapy education faculty in the effort to develop creative practices that prepare student physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with an appreciation for innovating learning strategies using technology.
