Conducting Focus Groups In A Virtual Environment: A Review Of Best Practices In Methodology (Presentation), Rosanne Brown, Shazia Akhtar, Laura Edge

Sheridan Creates

In this session, we will analyze the focus group methodology and outline best practices for data collection in a virtual context. Considerations around group dynamics, visual cues, and bias will be discussed using a comparative approach of in-person and virtual focus groups. In addition to adapting focus group practices and procedures from in-person to online, there are new aspects to take into account; video-conferencing tools and technological considerations, including issues with connectivity, distractions and privacy concerns are factors that need to be accounted for when conducting focus groups virtually. The focus of the presentation will be on best practices prior ...

Building Resilience Through Social Activities In The Esl Program (Teach Geeks), Suzanne Soares, Alireza Sobhanmanesh

Sheridan Creates

The session will describe our efforts during Fall 2020 to keep our ESL Club social activities relevant for our changing student demographic (fewer international students, more domestic students with work and family responsibilities) and attract more students to attend virtual social events during a challenging time with so much fluctuation. The result was the creation of social activities that combined socialization with the means of enhancing learners’ metacognition, emotional regulation, resilience and motivation. Two of these events were a Newcomer Success Stories coffee chat and a forum presented by EAP students capturing their journey through the ESL Program. These events ...

Objective Method For Diagnosis Of Chronic Pain (Presentation), Rachel Jiang 2021 Sheridan College

Objective Method For Diagnosis Of Chronic Pain (Presentation), Rachel Jiang

Sheridan Creates

Pain assessment is essential to providing proper patient care and assessing its efficacy under clinical settings. To assess pain, physicians typically rely on patients' statements, which are subjective, or imaging technologies, which are unreliable as detected abnormalities do not always indicate pain and are not always present in cases of chronic pain. This research project aims at creating an automated chronic pain diagnostic system that will output a computer diagnosed pain score with the ability to accurately distinguish real from fake pain. The proposed system will enhance patient care and improve clinical practice efficiencies by applying the advanced 3D technologies ...

Sheridan Creates

In late 2019, a joint working group between the Teaching and Learning and Scholarship, Research and Creative Activities (SRCA) Standing Committees of Senate was struck to explore curriculum-based SRCA across the College with the aim of establishing best practices, identifying needs, and capturing the breadth and depth of SRCA work linked to curriculum. The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic shifted much of our teaching and learning online and created challenges for conducting and supporting SRCA linked to curriculum.

We propose to gather faculty who are actively involved in remote curriculum-based SRCA to take part in a panel discussion about best ...

In this session, participants will be introduced to practical strategies for designing engaging courses in SLATE. Participants will learn why we design for inclusion with a focus not only on applicable legislation but also on how unintended barriers impede the learning experience for students. Faculty will learn how to enhance the navigation of their courses from the student perspective, and how to ensure their course materials are more accessible to all learners. Participants will have access to the course template to import into their own workbenches following this session.
