You’ve got your semester planned out and labs ready to go. Students are registered and looking forward to getting into labs and getting that hands-on experience, when overnight, you are told that all classes have to be put online... and your heart stops. Students need to be able to perform skills and as an instructor, you need to be able to effectively assess their progress. Labs cannot be taught online.
When the Medical Assistant program at Jackson College in Jackson, MI had to go online, the faculty were at a loss as to what to do with the numerous lab skills the students needed to learn to meet program accreditation requirements. Fortunately, the MA Program had implemented Crossbraining a few months prior, so put it fully into action.
