Purpose and Objective of the Research:  This research examines the impact of converting teaching to online/remote instruction following the emergence of Covid-19.

The act of immediately transitioning all Canadian post-secondary educational programs to online and/or blended delivery in response to the global pandemic has changed the nature of healthcare education for the foreseeable future. Faculty and students were required to respond dynamically to an often static education system. Faculties were required to be flexible, amenable to change, and role models of calm in uncertainty while being experts in modifying their instructional design from face to face classrooms and low to high fidelity simulations to online instructions in virtual classrooms. A nationwide survey of satisfaction and perceptions of equity will reveal the innovative reflections and modalities experienced by educators to be shared that will enhance healthcare education.

Procedures: You will navigate to an online SurveyMonkey survey. The license for SurveyMonkey is provided by Keyano College. You will be asked to provide demographic information about yourself prior to answering a series of questions about your teaching experience following the emergence of Covid-19. The questionnaire should take between 15-20 minutes. The last question of the survey invites you to leave contact information if you desire to be interviewed. This personal information is separate from your anonymous survey responses.
