The PTAE SIG webinar series has been designed to assist physical therapy faculty during the abrupt change to remote instruction during the COVID-19 crisis.  These webinars are designed to be “live” information sharing and are informal presentations with the intent to collaborate and assist those in need within the education community.  The unedited “real time” recordings are provided to assist those that may have been unable to attend due to competing obligations and not intended to be of the same quality of a formal webinar or educational session.  Thank you!

The Academy of Physical Therapy Education recognizes the personal and professional challenges raised by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we strategize around ways to meet our obligations to the education, health and well-being of our students, colleagues and patients, a commitment to personal and public health is essential. We encourage you to monitor the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control sites, as well as complying with local and institutional recommendations and directives.

Faculty and clinicians who wish to share strategies that meet compliance directives are encouraged to use the Academy's discussion forums for idea exchanges at > Member Resources > Discussion Forums. The first entry in any forum is a set of instructions for use.  The forums are searchable, allowing you to locate or follow past discussions (a feature not available in the Academy listserve). Be sure to enable 'notifications' to receive an email when new entries to a topic are posted.
