Teaching continues to evolve at Borders College, with lecturers adapting to the changes and utilising new technologies to deliver lessons.
Land-based Engineering lecturer Dave Black has been doing just that by producing a series of tutorial videos from his home in Newtown St Boswells.
A practical lesson on CPR was produced, with the use of a defibrillator, to keep students progressing in their studies.
With first aid being a vital part of the curriculum at College, Dave set up a mock ATV accident with the use of a dummy. Resuscitation techniques were recorded and uploaded to Microsoft Sway to allow students to access from their homes.
COVID-19 measures from the British Heart Foundation were also taken into consideration, which states:
“It is recommended that you do not perform rescue breaths or mouth-to-mouth ventilation; perform chest compressions only. Compression-only CPR or in use a resuscitation face shield where available. If possible a defibrillator should be used.”
