EXCEL E-learning Modules

Whether you are new to your role as a Clinical Educator, or would just like a quick refresher on a certain topic, our EXCEL e-learning modules are here for you!

These modules are designed as short (usually 5-15 minutes) e-learning opportunities. We realize that time is a valuable resource, and many of our future Clinical Educators cannot make it to one of our Clinical Educator workshops. We also recognize that we live in a big province, and we cannot offer our workshops in as many communities as we’d like. The EXCEL modules are meant to offer direct, anytime access to all the information found in our workshop, and they should answer most questions you might have about taking a student.

These modules are a work in progress. Check back for further additions! Completed modules are in green. 

Note: To view a module you will need headphones or speakers.
