In response to requests from psychology educators, The CPA’s Education Directorate has developed a brief guide to taking university instruction in psychology online. The guide has a brief overview of the processes involved in student learning, as well as helpful tips to increase student engagement, and provides a framework for course planning and development along with templates for course and lesson planning. It contains extensive links to other sources of practical help in making the transition from in-person to online environments. The guide is intended to be a living document, and will be updated as new links and information become available.

COVID-19 is having a significant impact on the mental health of Canadians, none more so than those who are working on the front lines of health care. Canadians with COVID-19 depend on the expertise of health care providers. The health and well-being of those providers are critical to them being able to deliver this expertise.
