The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a rapid shift in the delivery of scientific educational content from in-person workshops, seminars, and one-on-one tutorials to virtual platforms. However, the majority of shared resource leaders are not formally trained in best practices of curriculum design, online education, and scientific communication. This workshop will give shared resource personnel the tools to effectively design and deliver educational content in a virtual environment, with an emphasis on video creation. While useful during the current pandemic, the skills learned in this workshop will be useful to support sustainability of educational content in the future.
