During the pandemic there has been an increased need for telehealth services especially for delivery of healthcare. Dr. Lacey Bromley in the Department of Physical Therapy has been invited to assist the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) in developing guidelines for both practitioners and patients. She joined the rehabilitation subgroup of the NMSS Medical Advisory Committee to create best practices for telemedicine for those living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In addition, she was invited by the NMSS to be a speaker for a live “Ask an MS Expert” webinar to speak directly to persons with MS. During that event she addressed questions about rehabilitation in MS as well as tips and tricks when accessing a healthcare provider via telehealth.
With COVID-19 being like nothing the healthcare field had ever seen, there was a lot to be learned by physical therapists around the country. Dr. Pam Bartlo from D’Youville’s Physical Therapy Department is also Vice President of the Academy of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physical Therapy. In this capacity and as a cardiac and pulmonary PT, Pam was immediately called upon to help colleagues that weren’t used to treating patients with such large pulmonary system involvements. Since the pandemic started, Pam has given several webinars and continuing education presentations for PTs around the country. One such presentation was part of the PACER Project (Post-Acute COVID-19 Exercise and Rehabilitation). The presentation that Dr. Bartlo and her colleague gave on pulmonary rehabilitation currently has almost 11,0000views on YouTube.
The D’Youville Pedagogical Playbook A Resource Collection for College Faculty The ITI and the ITI Advisory Committee are developing a new project: The Pedagogical Playbook – an idea submitted at the 2020 Ideation Huddle. The Pedagogical Playbook will be a video resource for faculty to share tips, tools, and teaching stories with one another – “faculty helping faculty”. Our goal is to gather at least one video per academic department. Please consider submitting a short video (5-25 minutes) with the ITI. Suggested topics below:
Tell us about a lesson that goes really well every time.
Tell us about how you connect with your students.
Tell us about a challenge you faced one day in the classroom.
What has your online lab experience been like?
What has teaching online been like for you?
What are some teaching tools you can’t live without?
What are some resources or tips you can share with your colleagues?

As part of an ongoing effort to track and explore developments in student learning outcomes assessment, NILOA has published over 20 institutional case studies. We are now revisiting and updating some of those earlier examples in order to understand more concretely how campus assessment practices evolve over time—through lessons learned from local experience but also as a result of changes in institutional priorities, the launch of new initiatives, leadership transitions, and trends in the larger assessment movement.
