During the current coronavirus pandemic, undergraduate nurse teaching is facing many challenges. United Kingdom (UK) Universities have had to close their campuses, which means that academics are working from home and may be coping with unfamiliar technology to deliver the theoretical part of the undergraduate nursing curriculum. Emergency standards from the UK Nursing and Midwifery Council have allowed theoretical instruction to be replaced with distance learning, requiring nursing academics to adapt to providing a completely virtual approach to their teaching. This article provides examples of tools that can be used to deliver the theoretical component of the undergraduate nursing curriculum and ways of supporting students and colleagues in these unprecedented times. Indeed, the content of this presentation is transferable and applicable to all higher education sectors and we do draw on our collaborations between School Health & Society and Salford Business School. We provide top tips on our experience here at Salford, of using digital technologies, including which tool to use-the decision-making process; exploring the role of the lecturer as facilitator; creating the support processes for academics who are working and delivering remotely; and buddying with colleagues from technical disciplines to maximise programme delivery success.
