The Covid-19 pandemic has driven rapid changes to higher education across the globe, in terms of mode of delivery and assessment. Online teaching has previously been considered as an alternative or supplementary pedagogy to face to face teaching, with differing levels of success. Particularly within allied health programmes and the unique challenges they present, such as the need to deliver theoretical content which underpins and supports clinical practice. We utilised various online simulation-based resources, e.g. Mannequins, PACS simulator, Sectional-anatomyTM in our approach. This unanticipated encounter provided upskilling opportunities and allowed us to provide an effective alternative to face to face delivery.
