Virtual Learning for Manual Therapists

Why is Online Training so Valuable?

In this unprecedented pandemic environment, it is important that learning continues, even if it can’t happen in person. Education provides a sense of purpose and accomplishment. As stress levels increase due to feelings of loss of control and routine, increasing your skill level will add to your toolbox and elevate your techniques so you’ll be better equipped to serve your clients.
 
Upledger Institute’s ability and responsiveness to shift the learning process to online educational platforms serves to fill the void of postponed or canceled classes due to social distancing, while providing a work-study-life balance.   

What are the Benefits of Online Learning?

While learning manual therapy techniques online may seem somewhat contradictory, many students have reported unexpected advantages. With screen sharing and videos to help clarify hand placement, online classes still permit the student to listen and watch the live instructor in a very up close and personal manner.

The material often presented with PowerPoint presentations, easy-to-see demonstrations of hand placements, and other teaching tools creates a highly effective way to learn with unobstructed views and uninterrupted class time.

Of course, attending a class online from home provides a sense of comfort and familiarity that can enhance learning. And, with virtual classrooms, the number of students is not limited by social distancing.

How Do You Transition and Prepare for Online Class?

It’s easy. You probably already have a computer or laptop with a good Wi-Fi signal at home. Be sure your microphone and camera are working on your device, so you can participate in the class when appropriate. In many cases, required and suggested reading titles, along with course study guides, will be sent to you with plenty of time to review before your online class.
