In this 3-hour facilitated workshop, participants will engage with in-person activities that will then be transposed to a remote online environment. Each activity is intended to support team-based work and includes brainstormed activities to build common cultural values, rules of play between team members to support equity, diversity, and inclusion and a variety of activities to enhance listening.

These activities are based on techniques used in the curriculum for the Biomedical Visualization and Communication certificate, a fully online programme offered by the University of British Columbia Extended Learning.

Finally, a series of role-play scenarios will be facilitated, and a customised artificially intelligent “bot” will be presented along with a report on student responses to the improv AI bot and future development plans.


In this workshop participants will:

  • Recall remote activities that were successful in their teaching.
  • Evaluate in-person tools that were transformed to remote teaching environments.
  • Synthesise workshop content and apply it to their own teaching practice.
