It is important to monitor this process carefully, and learn from the experiences. A structured interview guide was developed based on factors identified in the literature.


The responsible curriculum leaders at the Swiss medical faculties participated in a series of structured interviews during the Spring 2020. This project will deliver a better understanding of the actual transition from on-site to on-line teaching including barriers and problems encountered, solutions or innovative ideas for facilitating this transition.
