Another great group finished the Institute December 2010. This group willingly ventured forward with the moodle site. We used it to post assignments, handouts, readings, etc. In addition, this group was the first ones to work in small groups with the Master Clinicians/Mentors. Some of the technology was challenging especially uploading the videos for review with the mentors. 

But everyone made contact with their Master Clinicians/Mentors and most had several SKYPE sessions together. Based on the feedback of the students and the Master Clinicians we will look to determine what worked and how to make that piece of the Institute an even richer clinical experience.
